Results for Ferndown Golf Club Event

Thanks all for attending the Farnham golf society event at the Ferndown golf club on Friday 26th April. A lovely condition (but tricky in places) golf course led to some reasonable scores.
Congratulations to Dane Lewington who won with 37 points with Terry Leader coming in second with 36 points. You can see the mughot here. Longest drive went to Kirk Stoll and Sam Thompson won nearest the pin. Pink ball went to Darron Clarke with a disappointing 19 points.

3’s Competition
19 Gareth Sweet
17 Chris Ungaretti

Congratulations Sam on a storming year of golf.

AGM
It was agreed that:
Subs will go up to £40, of which £4 from each member would go to the 3’s competition as a cash prize (1st and second place) and £6 from each member would go towards an end of season prize fund or curry fund;
Nick would be responsible for booking courses, communication with gold clubs and for the general herding of cats. I have sent Nick all the relevant details/passwords/admin rights to enable him to do this;
New members were discussed and it was agreed that any new members would start with a handicap of 18;
All members agreed that mandatory handicaps were beneficial for non club handicap players and Phil is kindly in charge of the online handicap system. Members paid the £15 charge for this service;
Terry raised the point that he is useless with technology, so I have messaged him this morning with his website username/password again and sent him a link to the WhatsApp FGS group!
6 Courses were voted in for next year (you can see them in the 2019 tab on the Overall Results excel file)

With no other business raised, we all finished our beers and left the building.

See you all soon,
Gareth

Results for Donnington Grove Golf Club Event

Thanks all for attending the Farnham golf society event at the Worplesdon golf club on Friday 17th August. Dry conditions and softish greens enabled players to hit more accurate shots than usual.
Congratulations to Lewis Langley who won with a spirited 37 points with Sam Thompson coming in second (again) on countback. You can see the mughot here. Longest drive went to Billy Lewington and Kirk Stoll won nearest the pin. Pink ball went to Terry Leader with a wrist breaking 21 points.
The detailed results and financials can be seen in the members area. Your best 4 rounds for the overall championship are now shown and the 3’s competition has a two way tie at the top.

The starting line up for the Oxfordshire will be determined by your placing, with the lowest point scorers out first and the leading fourball out last.

Lewis will be Captain for the last event this year at The Oxfordshire Golf Club on Friday 21st September. Currently I know of only one player (Chris Ungaretti) who cannot play.

Please let me know by Wednesday 12th September if you cannot play and if you can play, it’s also our annual ‘Bring a Guest’ day, so let me know how many guest places you require.

As there has been no discussion about the proposed mandatory golf handicaps for next year, I would welcome your feedback on that point and any other points you wish to raise at the annual AGM which will be held after play at The Oxfordshire.

I’ll see you all on the 21st.

Results for Worplesdon Golf Club Event

Thanks all for attending the Farnham golf society event at the Worplesdon golf club on Friday 13th July. Dry and hard fairways led to some interesting golf shots and lower than average scores.
Congratulations to Ian Grout who won with a hard fought 35 points with Sam Thompson coming in second on 34 points. You can see the mughot here. Longest drive went to Darron Clarke and Phil Boyle won nearest the pin. Pink ball went to Dane Lewington on countback with a lowly 23 points.
The detailed results and financials can be seen in the members area. I can now show 2 of the best 4 rounds for the overall championship and the 3’s competition and like this weekends open, it’s tight at the top!

Ian will be Captain for the next event at Donnington Grove Golf Club on Friday 17th August. Buggies are included in the price.

We have been kindly offered a 20% discount code to use on a website called Druh who sell golf gear (even though their logo looks like a big cock!): https://druhbeltsuk.co.uk/. Enter the code ‘FARNHAMGS’ when prompted during checkout.

Phil has proposed that golf handicaps become mandatory for next year, which I second. An official handicap through Elite golf solutions will cost you a mere £15. This only applies to players with no official handicap. This will help to make the scoring and handicap system for 2019 more accurate, fair and transparent.

Hope to see you all at the next event and if you know now that you cannot make it, please let me know in plenty of time please.
