OH Golf Day
Well, the saying “ the sun shines on the righteous “ certainly applied to this year’s group of pious golfers when we experienced warm dry conditions and was given added weight when the non golfing attendee heralded a deluge of heavy rain at the moment he arrived. Powell Price may have sung in the cathedral choir during his days at HCS but has obviously gone astray during the intervening years. He continues, however, to be good company at the supper which follows the golf and then at the Green Dragon to where a select number of us repaired to consider the faded glory of the hotel matching our own fading glory.

Although I am painting a picture of a group of ageing OH’s the intensity of the competition and the surprisingly high standard of golf meant we had a really good day and a keenly fought contest. Burghill is set in the lovely Herefordshire countryside and is a good test of golf. Mark Ellis OH and his clubhouse staff looked after us well during the day and the green keeping staff had prepared a great course for us so it was a pleasure to be there. The banter that goes on is the aspect I particularly love about the day so please come and join us next year. You may not be in the winning team but you will enjoy the day. It will be held on Thursday 10th May 2018.

The winning team was Stephen Williams, Angus Craig and Des Whetter. They are in the front row. Behind them left to right are Clive Mugridge, Jack Beach, John Oldman, Jeremy Clare, Howard Tomlinson, Ray Harris, Powell Price, Roger Morgan, Andrew Singer, Peter Williams and Geoff Dimmock.
