OSGS Visit to Ashridge Golf Club, Hertfordshire on Friday 25 October 2019

The annual visit to Ashridge by the OSGS is a special occasion as we can invite a guest to come and play with us. Last Friday, we met in the clubhouse for bacon rolls at 7.45am on a fresh but dry autumnal day before heading out to the 13th Tee, adjacent to the clubhouse, to play in Four Ball Teams – playing a Stableford competition off full handicaps from the White Medal Tees.

 The Four Fourballs were as follows:

Team A

Simon Shepherd OSGS – 6     &                      Lachlan French – 11

John Bolton OSGS – 19                      &          Mike Shen – 26

Team B

Charles Hill OSGS – 11                        &          John Galbraith – 13

Mark Summers OSGS – 18      &                     Robin Moser -15

Team C

John Parker  OSGS – 18                      &         Geoffrey Lane – 21

Stephen Shaw OSGS – 12      &                      Andrew Shaw – 17    

Team D

Michael Cox OSGS – 24                      &          Tim Cox – 20 – signed up as a New Member of OSGS on the day- Welcome to the club Tim!  

Andy Pollock OSGS – 4                      &          John Rowlinson OSGS  – 22

 The course was in good condition and the greens were running fast – particularly after the morning dew disappeared.

 The heavy rain forecast for the east and the midlands and due to arrive with us at midday did not materialize until we were in the clubhouse eating the Ashridge Lunch washed down with the Club Malbec. Everyone had a great day out and the following prizes were awarded:

Longest Drive on 1st Hole                   –           Simon Shepherd

Nearest the Pin on 3rd Hole                –           David Bonnett

Nearest the Pin in 2 on 9th Hole          –           Charles Hill

Nearest the Pin on 11th Hole               –           John Bolton

Team A with 84 points won the overall competition and each player received a sleeve of the new Crested OSGS Pro V1s!

Teams B,C and D all had 79 points and as a result each of the 12 players all received a single Crested OSGS Pro V1 ball.
