Presidents Day at Walton Heath 27th May 2021

We were blessed by a day of decent weather for our President’s Day at Walton Heath.  Both courses were in excellent condition and the greens were both fast and receptive, I think for the impending arrival of the US Open Qualifier rather than the arrival of the Hazards. Despite covid measures being strictly enforced the

Ladies Day at Worplesdon

On a very pleasant August morning 20 Hazards and their ladies gathered at Worplesdon for our mixed foursome event.  The Society has struggled over the years to get a meaningful field – to get up to 20 was very pleasing and, I hope, a sign of things to come. The morning was won by Mike

Our meeting at The Berkshire on 3rd July 2019 was blessed with beautiful weather but, sadly, a poor turn out.  Last year 38 members and guests turned out; this year there just 14.  A great pity as the course was in magnificent condition. The Autin Carris Memorial Trophies were played for on the Red Course

Heavy snow over the UK had meant that our opening fixture was in the balance as we moved into the 2018 season.  Finally, I received the good news that the course was fully open with some eighteen hours to spare before the first tee time. Seventeen members and three guests arrived bright and early in
