Our UK golfing warriors took to the Tondbridge Golf Club Course to square things with our old rivals the Old Tonbridgians. Unfortunately that didn't go according to plan, but it was very close.

UK Branch Secretary, Nicky Bicket (1973F) reports: Last Saturday, 26th June, our golfing warriors took to the Tondbridge Golf Club Course to square things with our old rivals the Old Tonbridgians. That, as things turned out, we didn't do. But it was very close.

and one which we look forward to, not just for the golf but for the camaraderie as well.

Our captain for the match was Graham Llewellyn (G, 2010, looking serious, below) and he filed this report:

"It was a good day out. Thankfully the weather held and the conditions were good for golf. The course was in excellent condition. One of the better courses I’ve played over here.

We unfortunately went down on the day. Though it was close. Damon Crowhurst (F, 1991) and Dermot Commins (G, 1980) were sent out first in a 3 ball. They were each playing individual games against one OT. Dermot won his game (4/3) and Damon went down (4/3) so effectively all square after the first match. Seb Golding (F, 2011) and Dan Linegar (K, 2011) then went out and won their match 2/1. It was then my and James Pickering's (O, 1997) turn. It was a tight game through the first 9 and then the OTs put the hammer down by playing some really good golf coming in. So we ended up going down 3/2. Greg Baldwin (O, 1975) followed with the extra James Hyslop and unfortunately lost the decider.

So all in all it was 3 games to 2 in the end so it was close. Still it was a good day and it was really nice playing against the OTs as usual. Everyone had a good time which made the day a great success".

The next outing is against the Old Haileyburians on the 4th September at the RAC in Surrey. This will be our fourth match against them and they are tough competitors, notwithstanding that a few of them rely on motorised transport to get them from hole to hole.

And then, on 18th September, fresh from our annual UK Dinner the previous week, we go into battle against Michaelhouse and Hilton old boys which takes place at the Silvermere Golf Club in Cobham, Surrey. This is going to be a huge game. Old scores will be settled and new challenges thrown down. Sharpen your clubs. Don't miss it.

For the Old Haileyburian and the Michaelhouse/Hilton match, please get hold of Alex Price now to secure your place.
