The Redditch golf day originally scheduled for Wednesday 28th April has also been moved to next season and will take place on Wednesday 27th April 2022.

As Redditch have postponed the schedued event to 2022, instead we are having an 18 hole day on Friday 28th April at Lichfield Golf & Country Club. Details are on the Next Golf Day page but the day will simply comprise coffee and bacon rolls followed by 18 holes. No food arranged afterwards due to Covid restrictions, there may be the option to purchase something and eat outside, it'll all depend on the weather.

Changes made to results, members handicaps, league cup, birdies leagues, 2's sweep and BUNGS Masters Qualifiers from the Challenge Trophy at Hinckley Golf Club.

As Hinckley was the final event of the 2018/19 season, the year long competitions were also finalised as follows:

League Cup
Kevin Morris was leading the way with only Adrian Marchant, Peter Meaney and Adam Thompson  able to overtake him. None of his challengers rose to the occasion and Kev's third place finish at Hinckley was more than enough to take the League Cup title with Steven Raji in second and Peter Meaney in third.

Gross Birdies League
Kev was a full 11 birdies ahead of his nearest challenger and a further three birdies at Hinckley were more than enough to also secure this title with John Shaw in second and Adam Thompson in third.

Nett Birdies League
Phil Latham was leading the way on 32 points but only added a further two nett birdies to his total. It was Gary Tyler who stood in fifth at the start of the day who scored a whopping nine nett birdies to leapfrong everyone above him and take the crown, with Phil Latham and Kevin Morris in joint second two points adrift.

Captain's Eclectic Competition
Phil Latham was leading the way in this competition also with seven players within four points. Nobody improved their score significantly so it's Phil that takes the inaugral Eclectic title.

Update to the society tours page. The final day of this years tour was meant to see us visit Rolls of Monmouth Golf Club but they have been messing us around regarding the catering arrangements so the committee took the unaminous decision to cancel the booking at Rolls of Monmouth and we have instead booked in at Southerndown Golf Club. I hope that all those signed-up for the trip are happy with this decision, in my opinion (and acording to the top golf club rankings) Southerndown is a better golf course anyway and I am positive that nobody will be disappointed to play there. Have a visit to the club website and see the course video guide accomanied by the unmistakeable tones of commentator Eddie Butler as he describes the playing characteristics of each hole and you have a unique view of a unique course.

2 February
