MTGS Meeting Report

We were blessed with fine weather at St Georges Hill today although it was a little nippy at times. The course was in pretty good nick although the greens were not quite at their best due to a complete lack of rain since they were hollow tined two weeks ago.

The turnout was pretty good at 59 compared to last year’s 52. There were some notable absentees – the 2016/7 President, Ray Sommerville, who is ill: the 2017/8 President, Paul Williams, in Dubai (tough but someone has to do it!) and the 2017/2018 Vice President, Martin Derrick. The main points covered, after an excellent lunch, by Roger Prowting were: -

• A welcome to all present and a particular one to three first timers as MTGS members - Martin Broome, Carl Virgo and Craig Purvey
• A sincere "thank you" for the continued sponsorship of our prizes by BCA (Craig Purvey is their Chief Commercial Officer)
• Thanks to Terry Wills for organising the event and for the assistance provided by John Etches
• Our opening event of the season was very successful namely the Committee Cup played at New Zealand GC where finally the Committee managed a victory albeit a very narrow one!
• Today’s especially low price reflected the compensation received for the poor condition of St Georges Hill last year
• A reminder that this is the first of our five "majors" to find the player of the year: the other four are Woking (May 26th), Hadley Wood – our venture north of the river – (June 19th), Hindhead (July 27th) and Walton Heath (September 14th). Get your guests lined up for the three member/guest days

The results are detailed below. Adam Kendrick’s performance was very special – playing 18 holes in level par!

A short, thinly attended AGM completed the day - the minutes will be posted on the website in due course. Here is my personal summary: -

• A society in overall very good shape (including its finances)
• The positive financial situation means that this year the Society will subsidise members’ costs for member/guest days as already evidenced by the Woking invite recently sent out
• Paul Williams confirmed as this year's President
• Martin Derrick voted in as Vice President
