MTGS v BMW DGS
News and information from this event
West Byfleet Golf Club October 10th 2018
We all assembled at 8.30 ready to do battle against BMW: the teams were drawn and we duly decamped to the first tee after our sustenance of a bacon roll and coffee. The weather was absolutely glorious with the promise of temperatures of 23oC and above.
The first group of Roger Prowting and Mike Bell were sent out with the instruction to bring back a point but, to no avail, the first win went to BMW 2 & 1. Fortunately, the following teams came in with good results: - Martin Broome and Craig Brown winning 5 & 4, Ray Fisher and John Smith winning 3 & 2, Ray Sommerville and Paul Healey winning by 1 hole, John Wake and Eamon Bradley winning 2 & 1 and finally Oliver Harris and Mike Jones winning 4 & 2.
So, the overall result was 5 - 1 in favour of the MTGS. The trophy was presented to Roger (who was standing in for the President) and, after four years, we have finally got it back to where it belongs. Our thanks go to BMW who generously paid for the half way hut, bar drinks and wine at the table before we departed to do battle with the local traffic just before 5pm. A lovely day with lovely company who we will all see at the dinner at The Dorchester on 6th December as BMW have already booked and paid for a table of 12 to support us.
West Byfleet looked after us well again, the course was good and, despite some work going on at the 7th hole, it played well: the food was good with lots of positive comments on the chef’s steak and kidney pie. There was agreement with everyone to book again for 2019.
