OSGS Golf Players Gog Magog 2017

The weather was excellent for the first OSGS Meeting of the year, which was held at Gog Magog Golf Course, Cambridge on Thursday, 1 June 2017.  26 OS and guests turned out for a great day of golf in the sunshine.  Our Captain, Peter Lennie (SH, 72-75) donated a variety of prizes to the winners of various competitions, presented by Stuart Findlay (SHa, 55-61), our Chairman.

Buggies were in demand due to age and the heat! Despite, or maybe because of, the excessive sunshine, several players spent much of the day in the sand!

Bob Kisby (Staff, 73-11) was showing off his new BSC Book, Simon Lipscombe (HH, 90-95, Staff (11-) and Gary Law (Staff, 03-) turned up to represent Staff and Miles Vartan`s (SH, 76-81) Guest, Dale Fiddy, played so well in the morning, we are considering changing his name by Deed Pole, to Norman Monk Jones, so he qualifies as an Old Stortfordian and can play in the Halford Hewitt for us!
