WHELKS Golf Society

Tuesday 17th March saw 11 Members of the Society meet at our “Home” Club, Ombersley GC, where we held our AGM which once again saw Roger Fennell voted in for the normal 2nd Year as Captain, Bob Sweeting continuing in his role as Secretary/Treasurer and Ian Fothergill as Handicap Secretary.

Following the AGM and the usual Bacon Rolls we met on the 1st Tee to see the Captain “Drive In” and the 1st Match of the season was then underway. Barrie Simpson had a magnificent 1 over Par for the Front 9 but could not unfortunately retain the momentum and the eventual Winner, who also won this Match last Year, was George Barrow with an excellent Gross Score of 88. Ian “Ping” Fothergill managed to strike a canny 7 Iron 8’ from the Pin on the 5th (Nearest the Pin) and took the money.

An excellent day enjoyed by all.

Our next Match is at Bromsgrove GC on Tuesday 14th April. Anyone interested in having a game with an extremely friendly and happy Society please contact us. You will be made to feel very welcome.
