Fletchers Golf Day – 19 July 2018

Following a successful appeal by the "south of the river" golf society faction, the Fletchers' Company annual golf day was held at West Surrey Golf Club on 19 July.  Conditions were excellent, with the golf balls running well (when they were hit straight) over the baked fairways.


11 Fletchers competed for the MacLellan Cup.  The Master's guest, Col. James Denny of the Royal Fusiliers, joined us and duly won the guest prize (first place out of a field of one).


Scoring was (mostly) very close, with only one point separating each of first and second places, and second and third places.


The Master presented the prizes, and thanked Michael Williams for all his work in organising a very successful day.


Anne Prout won the Ladies' prize, with Melanie Trapnell second.


Overall Peter Hollins came third, with Michael Williams in second place.  The winner was Ted Hoefling, who had impressed his playing partners with his spot-on putting on the very fast greens.


Winner of the nearest the pin prize was Ted Hoefling, and winner of the longest drive (more than 300 yards, but it was downhill) was Michael Williams.


The strongest player, supporting the rest of the field with his score, was John Power, winning the Scott Knight trophy.
