OH Golfing Success

Heartiest congratulations to everyone who represented the OHGS on 12th October in what was an excellent reclaiming of the 'Foresail Trophy' at West Surrey Golf Club. 


Our team (in no particular order) comprised: Richard Heard, Roddy Wakeford, Roger Hopkins, Jeremy Page, Andrew Sanders and me - together with our team manager and chief critic, Lord Charles/Tim Pipkin of West Sussex.


There were some great scores, mine didn't figure that prominently I'm disappointed to say, but our win was described by our hosts as 'convincing' so clearly all of us managed to accomplish what we had to well enough.  


Adding to our day's OH successes were Roddy Wakeford who won the prize for the 'Best Individual Stableford Score', Richard Heard who claimed 'Nearest the Pin' and Andrew Sanders (now forever Anthony...) who outmuscled everyone to the 'Longest Drive'. 


I would also like to say a special word of thanks to our reserves Jonathan Christie and David Danskin who, prior to the event, were they not to be needed for the team, most nobly agreed to play a friendly as neither the OEs nor the ODs could raise a team of 8...!!  


We OHs ain't that bad after all, are we.....we rarely seem to suffer that 'lack of participation' problem that others have and a big thank you to all of you for your continued support.


Finally, after the prize-giving, we were all able to drink a toast to our dear departed Roddy at what was his home club and following a match that originally was largely his brainchild.
