Summer Meeting 2019

We were back at Royal St George’s for the Lloyd’s Golf Club Summer Meeting 2019. With a field of 24 pairs, the Friday morning’s format is a stableford competition for the Howden Challenge Cup (highest stableford score), the WJ Foster Cup (best veterans’ stableford score) and also determines which flight of the knock-out competitions each pair is entered in for. The Howden Challenge Cup was won by Jonathan Ticehurst and Andrew Sturdy with 40 points and the WJ Foster Cup was won by Jonathan Turnbull and Anthony Hitchen. From Friday afternoon onwards, play enters the knock-out stages for three different flights of competition; the Cyril Winter Putter, the Hogg Trough and the Bedford Bowl.

These competitions proceed through Friday afternoon and Saturday morning with the finals being played on Saturday afternoon. Jonathan Ticehurst and Andrew Sturdy were victorious in the top flight Cyrill Winter Putter, Shuan Scade and Jason Innes won the Hogg Trough and the Bedford Bowl was won by Pat Murphy-O’Connor. For those who have been knocked out of competitions by Friday evening, a draw takes place at the dinner in the clubhouse to enter the Saturday morning stableford competition with a new partner for the Quaiche. This competition was won by Robin Clark and William Hayes with a very respectable 44 points against the Bogey card.

We must thank Royal St Georges for hosting the Lloyd’s Golf Club in what was a very enjoyable couple of days however next year we are looking forward to pastures new as Rye Golf Club have kindly offered their venue for the Summer Meeting on 3rd/4th July 2020.
