The Old Rugbeian Golfing Society play a match against the Veteran Ladies Golf Association every year. The match is played in September and moves round to different golf courses.

In 2017 the Ladies had the choice of venue and selected Richmond GC which is in the park and has a prestigious clubhouse – Sudbrook House.

We nowadays meet for lunch and play one round “holes up” in the afternoon. We have 6 matches of foursomes.

This year we were one player short so our “match manager” played his own ball. The matches were nevertheless tightly fought. One match was halved; John Cuthbertson, Christopher Johnson-Gilbert, Jock Fraser and Antony Aitken won their matches and the rest of us “went down”.

This does now clear the slate as we have a policy of giving the losing side an extra shot the following year – this year we were giving the Ladies an extra 3 shots.

 We will play next year at Piltdown GC (East Sussex) on Thursday 27 September.
