Twenty members gathered at Royal Cinque Ports GC at Deal on Friday 26th April 2019 for the rescheduled Presidents Day. Chris Sneath MBE, our President was there to see the field away from the first tee at 9.00 on a clear but breezy morning.
He then travelled down to the halfway house to, generously, make sure that the members were well hydrated before coming back to the clubhouse to join the attendees for lunch.
The afternoon saw the field play singles for ‘The Presidents Salver’. Play was a little slow as a coach party of ladies from Sweden tee-ed off before our party.
The morning foursomes were won by Ian Brooker and Richard Willacy with 29 points just pipping Rob Bailey and Malcolm Thomas who scored 28 points. The best nine went to our Captain, Hugh Smith and his partner, Richard Norris score a creditable 16 points on the front nine.
The Presidents Salver was won by David Downes with a splendid score of 34 points followed by Malcolm Thomas who took second with 31 points on a count back from Richard Willacy. The best nine went to that stalwart of The Hazards – Bruce Bevan-Jones.
