Tuesday 10th October - The RAC Club
After an absence of seven years, we returned to play the Old Course set in all its Autumn glory at Epsom Downs. 30 Members and guests took part and generally found the conditions challenging from a stiff breeze and slowish/tricky greens.
A great vote of thanks to Joe Lambert and helpers/family for all their hard work in making the day so enjoyable with the ultimate of eating a delightful dinner in the famed “Derby room”.
It was also a delight to see Bill Gaunt who joined us after the golf looking so well and being his usual ebullient self.
Special mention and congratulations to Brian Mitchinson for holing in one at the par 3 17th. This was his first ever and all appreciated his generosity by drinking his health with the port he kindly provided.
Andy Hall won the Dick Endacott Trophy with a fine 37 points closely followed by John Summerbell on 35 points who won on countback from Kam Patel.
Team winners were Kam Patel, John Somerville(guest) and John Foster with 82points.
