      For full report – see Kew Match Report

      We thank Kew Golf Club for accommodating us at short notice following the necessity to cancel and reschedule our December game due to the extreme wet weather leading up to the weekend before the game. Also thank you to Kew for donating 3 prizes of 4 games of golf for nearest the pin prizes and for presenting the course in excellent condition.

      Despite oppressive overnight temperature’s only dropping to 28 degrees, the morning was slightly overcast with some hot sunny breaks, but manageable conditions for golf.

      Congratulations to 2017 major winners in Michael Taylor (multiple Club Champion 2017, 2016 & 2014), Richard Baird (Handicap Bowl) and Laurie Miller (Golfer of the Year).

      A special welcome to new members playing their first game with us today are, Tony Linney from Yering Meadows, Tom Hynes from The National and Warren Grant from Spring Valley.
