What a day we had at Hankley Common – we started in a light drizzle and ended in a deluge. The course quickly became unplayed and was closed at 12.30 thus the afternoon foursomes were cancelled before we sat down for our lunch.
Not a nice note to end our first meeting of the season on. We had attracted a field of 28 – our best turn out for Hankley Common in several years.
The results of the one and only round were
1st Michael Katzler & Michael Butler 29 Points
2nd Richard Willacy & Peter Robinson 26 Points
Best 9 Holes Richard Morris & Steve Corrin 15 Points
Our Captain, Hugh Smith, welcomed everybody to our opening meeting and took great pleasure in presenting prizes to those who had performed well in such trying conditions.
The President took great pleasure in presenting the Immediate Past Captain, Duncan Bateman, with an engraved Salver to celebrate his year as Captain of the Society. Duncan had been unwell when the AGM took place.
