News and information from this event

MTGS Guest meeting held at Walton Heath Golf Club
Tue 6th September 2016
We had a great time at Walton Heath today: the course was in splendid condition and the weather was warm and dry. The greens were very true and the heather was beautiful but had to be avoided at all costs. 41 people participated in the final "MTGS major" of the year (one of our best turn outs at Walton Heath for a few years). The main points covered by the President after an excellent lunch were:
• apologies from our President, Ray Sommerville who was unable to attend due to an accelerated house move
• welcome to Des Campbell & Frank Whiffen who were playing in their first event as MTGS members
• our policy of rotating clubs for our member/guest days continues: next year we will be at Woking, Hadley Wood (for the first time we are venturing north of the river!) & Hindhead
• thanks to Motorclean for their continuing sponsorship - David Warren, John Hammond & Paul Cranwell were all in attendance and the latter presented the prizes
• formal invitations to the Dorchester dinner on December 1st should go out fairly soon but please make sure that you have reserved the date in your diary
• the BEN charity day takes place at St Georges Hill on Thursday December 1st
The results for the day’s Stableford, President’s Putting Competition and the Aggregate competitions are attached. Particular congratulations go to Neal Fox for going round Walton Heath today in 70 shots (two under par gross) and to Ray Fisher for being the MTGS player of the year (by a comfortable margin).
