It was lovely to return to Rye for many of us after two years of Covid disruption and isolation. The links even under leaden skies and pretty heavy rain on Friday afternoon were magnificent in their condition and golfing challenge.

With over 100 golfers playing in the match over the two days it is very much appreciated by Clive and I that this fixture is so well supported. It certainly encompasses the enjoyment of the RGS in both the competition and the company.

The opposition this year seemed to be particularly strong and despite a close result on Friday afternoon 4.5 points to 3.5 points we succumbed on Saturday and Clive’s team came out worthy winners 20 points to 9 in the end.

I do know a lot of the games went down to the last few holes and even putts in some cases so maybe the result was not totally reflective of the effort made by all. I also want to personally thank Clive for all his hard work and organisation behind the scenes to make the match run so smoothly.

I am pleased to say after 5 years of being the Rugbeian match manager which I have thoroughly enjoyed combined with heading down to live in the deep southwest of Cornwall next year I am very pleased to be passing the baton onto Rupert Cochrane.

He as a local man and Rye member is as enthusiastic as I am in continuing to encourage all ages of RGS members to participate including the young Halford Hewitt team managed by Alex, and best of luck to them all in the competition next month at Royal Cinque Ports and Royal St Georges.

It is a pleasure to enjoy excellent company and good golfing competition which brings out the best of Rugbeian spirit, I look forward to seeing you all in the various fixtures through the year and returning again next year to do battle on the wonderful links of Rye.
