MTGS Guest Meeting at Woking Golf Club

Friday 1st June 2018.

MTGS Member/Guest Day Woking Golf Club Friday June 1st 2018
On a dry, slightly muggy day, a field of 65 (including 31 guests) enjoyed a great golf course in superb condition. The golf was sandwiched between a bacon roll and an excellent lunch.
Our President, Martin Derrick, spoke over lunch and the key points he made were: -
• This was his first member/guest day as President and, to some extent, he felt he was speaking under false pretences as Graeme Hunt was due to be this year’s President until his major illness at the end of 2016. He was absolutely delighted to welcome Graeme to his first MTGS event since that time (this was greeted with very warm applause)
• Welcome to all present, especially the 31 guests (9 from FMI) and to Mike O’Hare playing with us as a member for the first time
• Our three remaining major events of the year are at: -
o Swinley Forest (you should already have received your invitation for the Member/Guest day on June 28th)
o Hankley Common (Member/Guest day on August 14th)
o Walton Heath (Members’ day on September 13th )
• We would normally be chasing you to submit your entries for the next event but we are already oversubscribed for the very special day at Swinley Forest: that said, if you are interested in playing then please let Terry know and you will go on a waiting list: past experience says that there will be drop outs.
• The Golf Manager was thanked for his efforts
• Woking GC was congratulated for their organisation, excellent food and a course immaculately presented
• Finally, there was a really sincere "thank you" for our sponsor today – Raphaels Bank. Two of our members are part of their senior management team – Miles Roberts and Carl Virgo – and I am delighted that they are here today and that Carl will be presenting the prizes later.
