Surrey Schools Golf Societies Festival
This year’s competition was played at Bramley GC with a shot-gun start for the 72 players. The weather was beautiful being hot with a light breeze and the course was in fine condition despite not having seen any rain for ages. The star of our team was Lance Condon with 37 points, which made him runner up to the best score on the day of 42 – well played Lance. Jonathan Poole had a good round scoring 32 points but the other three, myself included, failed to get into the thirties.
The winning team was from the Old Tiffinians with 175 points from five players, which is a remarkable average of 35 points. Bramley provided an excellent lunch for us all and one of the organising team, Brian Collison, set up a bar tab for every player’s first drink -thank you very much Brian and Martin. The competition will be organised by the O T’s next year and the year after at a venue to be decided by them.
