Report 14th September 2018

The youth theme continued at the Southern Autumn meeting on Friday 14th September; ably organised by Adrian Pepper at Woking Golf Club.

An eclectic mix of twenty one players from the under 30’s to the over 70’s melded seamlessly together for two rounds and a splendid lunch.  The O.R.G.S. once again demonstrating how at ease the generations are with one another,  when sport is the common theme in the all embracing family that is Repton.

Unaffected by some savage pin positions on the tricky, undulating greens, the morning singles competition was easily won by Richard Cawdron with 42 Stableford points. Richard is clearly enjoying his golf and lessons with the professional at Worplesdon Golf Club appear to have been worth every penny; a review of his elected 21 handicap was duly undertaken. 

In the afternoon old and young with mixed handicaps were paired up for foursomes.

Luke Lacey hits the ball a long way but he needed a short-game coaching session after some disastrously shanked chips in the morning.  Luke is clearly a fast learner and also a very lucky man as he drew an expert foursomes partner in Philip Carr, (who we have every confidence will play his 100th Halford Hewitt match next spring).  The pair never looked back from an eagle two on the opening hole and with 40 Stableford points, Luke was clearly delighted to put his name on a Repton golf trophy for the first time.

The players were: Adrian Pepper (H83);  Chris Lawson (L84); Richard Fry (N60); John Fletcher (L66); John Ballinger (P59); Ian Payne (L55); Peter Prickett (P64); Gordon West (B62); Nick Walford (B69); James Gildersleve (071); Richard Pinder (L64); Richard Cawdron (L79);  Darren Vickers (L83); Philip Carr (H72); Adam Dewhirst (N90); Luke Lacey (C07); David Scarrett (P04); Mike Watson (P04); James Glover (P13); Richard Doxey (P06); Alex Needham (N10).

A clear warm day on a pristine course in mid- September provided perfect golfing conditions but for the challenges laid by John Low, founder member of Woking Golf Club (1893) and of the Old Reptonian Golfing Society (1924).  The back tees, combined with slick and sloping greens, proved sufficiently challenging that none of the 15 Old Reptonians present managed to play to their handicap, but that did not detract from a fun day’s golf with the usual convivial lunch at which we toasted Dr. Stapleford, inventor of the scoring system which works so well for these occasions. 

Mark Anselm played the steadiest golf of the morning, winning the Barnett Bowl with 34 points. The winner of the combined Spring and Autumn southern meetings was Richard Doxey, who was presented with the Prickett Platter.  The afternoon foursomes were won by James Gildersleve and Richard Cawdron with 31 points, collecting the John Stroyan Salver and EH Sale Tankard.

The winners received their prizes from the Captain of the Society, Richard Body.
