TWS Autumn Golf Meet – Oct 2019

The O W Golf Society

Venue: The Monmouthshire GC  Abergavenny

Date: Monday 1st October 2019

20 members and guests turned out to play with a very foreboding forecast. Bacon rolls and coffee were hastily consumed and we urged all players to start early and get ahead of the weather. The first two groups almost managed this, but by the time the last few groups were half way round, the monsoon conditions got the better of them and play was abandoned on the 15th with waterlogged greens. To even things out, all the scoring only went up to the 15th.

Nevertheless, in true spirit, everyone enjoyed the day, though not getting wet!

One particular guest revelled in the conditions, however, and ‘cleaned up’ on prizes.

  1. Martin Davies (Hon OW 1989 – 2001) [26 points after countback – the Charles Trump salver]
  2. Robert Pakeman (P H 1961 – 1969) [26 points after countback]
  3. Robert Rennicks (Hon OW 1980 – 2011) [25 points]

Our thanks go to the catering staff as we all enjoyed an excellent meal of steak and mushroom pie and chips, followed by apple crumble and then cheese and biscuits.

The next meeting will be mid May 2020 and the venue is still to be decided.

It was nice to see some ‘new’ Wycliffians who had not attended for some time, but it would be even nicer to see some younger blood taking on the stalwarts.
