REVIEW

The golfing gods shone on the Old Rugbeian Golfers this year and picked two lovely days to enjoy the challenge of the Rye links in between some horrific wet and windy non golfing conditions which we have all experienced around the country.

With over 100 golfers playing in the match over two days it is very appreciated by Clive and I that this first ORGS match of the year is so well supported by both Rugbeian and Rye members. It certainly encompasses the enjoyment of Old Rugbeian golf  in both the competition and the company.

We were also very well supported by Alex Fiott’s Halford Hewitt team and again a number of positive comments were made of how important it is to link the talent of the young with the commitment of the more senior members.

Unfortunately this year Rye’s team led by Clive were too strong over the two days winning Friday pm 6 points to 3, Saturday am despite some very stiff resistance 6.5 to 4.5 points and then after another excellent lunch which they are more used to consuming than us!,  7 points to 3 in Saturday pm.so the final score was 19.5 points to 10.5 points.

Well done to Clive’s team and also for those players who won their matches for the Old Rugbeians. I know a lot of the games went down to the last couple of holes so maybe the result is not too reflective of the effort made by all.

We continue to encourage all Old Rugbeian golfers of all ages and standards to our events. This year the ages (not the handicaps) ranged from 19 to 84. I hope that we can all gather again in 2021 to do golfing battle with true Rugbeian spirit as well as enjoy the wonderful company on and off the course.
