News and information from this event

West Byfleet Golf Club October 11th 2017

After a difficult drive for some, with various traffic incidents en route, we all arrived at West Byfleet Golf Club to contest this, our last match of the season, at around 9am. The weather conditions were predicted to be fair but damp, and that proved to be the case. The course has had a lot of work done to it over the last year or so with the rough and bramble in the tree line being cleared making the mishit ball easier to find!!

The match was played for the impressive trophy made up from the brake disc from Juan Pablo Motoya’s F1 car that won the Spanish GP.
The overall result was a win for BMW 3½ to 2½. Unfortunately, it meant that BMW retained the trophy that they won last year and it will remain in their trophy cabinet on display at their Head Office until contested again next year.

Our thanks go to BMW for their support of this match and, in particular, picking up the cost of the half way hut, dinner wine and pre-dinner drinks. They are also supporting us again with a table at our Dinner at The Dorchester where we can renew our friendships and discuss the missed putt/lucky shot over a glass of wine.

The winning pairs for MTGS were Peter Batchelor & Joff Suter, Mike Jones & Graham Balaam, with Eamon Bradley & Terry Hunt earning a well-deserved half after a winning putt from Eamon on the 18th. The unfortunate pairings of Nick Haigh & El Presidente (Paul Williams) and John Smith & Ray Fisher, came up against tough opposition that played very well on the day. The overall result was a fair one and everyone departed in high spirits after an excellent carvery meal and plenty of banter, looking forward to next year.
