Foxhills AGM Meeting Report

posted 25 Jul 2013, 01:18 by Brian Ward   [ updated 1 Aug 2013, 04:31 ]
The Golf Society of Great Britain 2013 AGM Meeting took place at Foxhills, Surrey on 16th/18th July. Seventy members enjoyed glorious weather for the duration of their stay with temperatures hitting 30 degrees at times. The outdoor pool became very popular after golf giving the whole event the feel of an overseas tour. Poolside photographs will not be shown!  The golf courses are tree-lined and very picturesque with excellent greens; both were very much enjoyed by the members. The courses finish on a huge double green in front of the terrace area which was an ideal location for the Pimms evening before Dinner on Wednesday evening.

The accommodation at the Hotel is certainly of the highest order; add to that the restaurant quality food and compact nature of the facilities and you can only be very impressed with Foxhills as a venue. We look forward to our next visit in 2014.

We were delighted that Life Member Ruth Ferguson was able to be with us again to assist our Chairman Linda Hill at the prize giving.

The Handicap Cups for the best two day aggregate scores were won by our President Jim Hunter (Lee-on-the-Solent) with 65 points and Chris Wakefield (Bath) 65 points. John and Margaret Pugh with 122 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 was a “beat the pro” competition on the Longcross Par 3 11th, on which 4 ladies and 3 gents managed to get inside the Pro and win a bottle of wine. The winners were Christine Hinchcliffe, Linda Hill, Jenny Burgess, Bobbie Austin, Russell Wakefield, John Burgess and John Pugh.

Our next Meeting will take place at Alwoodley & Ilkley on August 22nd/23rd.

 

The 2014 AGM will return to Foxhills on July 22nd/23rd.
