Ross-on-Wye / Rolls of Monmouth Report   June 21st – 22nd  2018 

After such a long, wet winter who would have thought that we would be playing golf on firm and fast courses with slick greens and brown fairways by the month of June. Glorious sunny weather was enjoyed on both sides of the Welsh border as the GSGB took on two very attractive parkland courses at Ross-on-Wye and the Rolls of Monmouth. Both were in good condition throughout but a combination of fast and undulating greens set a stiff examination that was beyond most of our members. A field of 53 players took part and it was no great surprise to see just two players play to their handicap over the two days. At Dinner we were joined by the Ross-on-Wye Captain, Mr Robert Tuttiet and his wife Irene. Robert accepted the Society donation of £500 for their junior section from GSGB Chairman Robin Moser before speaking of the clubs tremendous success growing their junior section from just 30 to over 100 boys and girls over the past 5 years. The Founders Trophy for men was won by Terry Jones from the Warren with 71 points. The ladies Founders Trophy was won by Terry's partner, Vanessa Adams, also from the Warren who scored 59 points. David Kerr from Northants County and Rosemary Lilley from Portal were the aggregate runners-up. A full list of all prize winners can be seen below.
