President’s Newsletter 2014

To the members of the Old Wykehamist Golfing Society.   During the summer, a questionnaire was sent to each of our match managers in order to gauge the viability of the matches they run each year and to suggest any improvements. This was an exercise the Society had not carried out for a number of years and we felt it was time once again to take stock.   I am delighted […]

Old Bradfieldians

Location : Sunningdale Golf Club   The result below for the Sunningdale match details a rare victory against the Bradfieldians, which was in part due to the generosity of the Bradfield fifth pair who agreed to a halved match when the Winchester pair in the fading light played the wrong ball up the last.  It seems that if we can organise for Sandwich and Deal to be frozen solid at the […]

A mixed weekend for O.W golf…

On Saturday Tom Hawkings and Nick Holt  came 7th (out of c.30) in the Alba Trophy with a rather disappointing score of 165.  Scoring conditions were not that tricky but the course is often set up to catch out the errant or sloppy shot, and a few of those were seen especially in the first 9 holes! There is always next year! However, on Sunday, the Old Wykehamists qualified for […]
