UK alumni golf tournament

The inaugural golf match between the ODU and the UK alumni of Michaelhouse and Hilton took place on 18th September at Silvermere Golf Club.

Building on the long and close relationships between our four schools and the recent launch of the LinkedIn career and mentoring group, it was inevitable that matters would come to a head in the world of sport. Golf, to be precise.

Thanks to the tireless efforts of Alex Price (M, 2008), nine ODs went up against the best of the Kwazulu-Natal midlands and Grahamstown and lost — just — to Michaelhouse. The uneven numbers meant resorting to a new handicapping and scoring system which makes the Duckworth-Lewis model look simple, but after much scrutiny and double-checking, all that separated us ODs from the winners was 0.4!

Many of the old boys from each of the schools know each other and so the day felt more like the renewing of old friendships than a cutthroat golf tournament.

Played on the Silvermere course in Cobham, Surrey in excellent conditions, a rematch next year and the every year onwards is a "must". With big thanks to Milton, and Michaelhouse for being a part of this.
