Golf Spring Meeting

In this year of mixed weather, it was great to have beautiful conditions for our Spring Meeting on 13th May at Malden Golf Club. When I was at KCS in the 1960’s, Malden G C was the venue for the Old King’s Club members’ match against the school so it is always a trip back in time for chaps of my generation when we play there.

The winner of the Bill Cox Stableford Cup was David Cross with 38 points followed up by Ian Hay and myself with 35 and Rob Bannister with 32 (my father would have been very proud to have his name still remembered). The Blades Scratch Cup was won by Michael Wale with 25 points closely followed by Michael Choong with 23 – he also won the longest drive prize. Tim Parrack won the nearest-the-pin prize. Well played everyone – the next event is the friendly match against the Old Paulines at RWGC on 7th June and the Surrey Schools Golf Societies Festival at Clandon on the 23rd June, for which I still have a couple of team vacancies.
