Our early season match with the London Solicitors once again proved to be a very enjoyable occasion.
There was much antecedent alarm about the state of the course at Woking where major winter drainage work had been undertaken on the greens. But in all the circumstances the course was in remarkable good condition for competitive fun golf. Despite expectations to the contrary there were no temporary greens and the greens putted fast and well.
Five OR London Solicitors played – Surtees (for LSGS), Johnson-Gilbert (for both sides) and Bach, Watts & Hills for the ORGS. Additionally, Jamie Clark observed at lunch that the biggest representation on parade was from Rye !
The hospitality at Woking was as always magnificent and the lunch was exceptional by comparison with any golf club. Our heartfelt thanks are due to Woking and especially to the inestimable Ellie Evans who not only managed the LSGS team but looked after all the arrangements at Woking.
The result of the match was a half – five points each – which was an entirely appropriate conclusion to a very happy day. The date for next year’s match will be 23 March 2018.
