LGC versus The Himalayans


On the 17th September 2014 the inaugural match between these two teams was played over 36 holes at Royal St George’s in memory of the late John Shipton. The Himalayan’s team comprised members of LGC who are also members of Royal St George’s together with members of the Shipton family, Ed and Matthew.

A wonderful day, under conditions varying between intermittent sea mist and brilliant sunshine, was had by all with the Himalayan’s prevailing in the final match, Tim Walker and Paul Gadsby taking the final point to secure victory by 6 1/2 to 5 1/2.

John was a passionate supporter of both golf clubs and the day was a fitting tribute to a lovely man.

The match will be played annually at Royal St George’s for the Shipton Pot.

Hon. Sec.
