Report on Mere AGM

posted 18 Jul 2017, 09:28 by Brian Ward   [ updated 18 Jul 2017, 12:17 ]
The Golf Society of Great Britain 2017 AGM Meeting took place at The Mere Resort & Spa, Knutsford, Cheshire on 10th/11th July. Seventy eight members entered this year's event which was a break from tradition with an 18 hole venue being chosen rather than the usual 36 hole complex. The golf course is a picturesque tree-lined parkland design with some interesting and well bunkered holes particularly on the more undulating back nine.

Our run of good weather at recent events came to an unfortunate end as rain fell on both days. Heavy rain on Day 2 meant that the competition was brought to a halt after 15 holes for the men and 14 holes for the ladies which led to a small team of volunteers being formed to adjust the scores to reflect the shortened course. The hotel accommodation, staff, food and facilities were very good indeed and we look forward to returning in the future.

The Handicap Cups for the best two day aggregate scores were won by Giles Hinchcliffe (Sand Moor) with 66 points and Kathryn Archibald (Alnmouth) 57 points. David and Kathryn Archibald with 130 points, claimed the Enjoy Golf Together Trophy by having the best husband and wife aggregate score over the two days.  All prize winners are listed below.

As well as the usual prizes there were "nearest the pin" competitions each day and a “beat the pro” competition on the 8th  hole, where 12 members managed to land nearer than the Pro.

Our next Meeting will take place at Sand Moor & Pannal on August 30th/31st.

The 2018 AGM will be held at The Belfry on July 26th/27th.
