Ged Keough Golf Day (posted Fri 3rd Jul 2015)
Our Annual Golf day was held at Whipsnade Golf Club when 27 holes of golf were played. The Texas Scramble in the morning was won by Paul Brinklow, Danny Robbins, Phil Casserley and Rob Hollingdale at 4 under par. The Main 18 hole competition had a clear winner and now the proud owner of the "Green Jacket" and various other trophies for 12 months, is former captain Mark Boniface who scored 39 points playing off a handicap of 8. In second place was Geoff Robson with 35 points followed by 3 players on 34 points. The much sought after "wooden spoon" this year went to Jamie Robbins who can boast as being the third member of the Robbins family to win this prestigious award following his father and Les and brother Danny into the record books. Both "nearest the pins" went to Paul Marsh and the "longest drive" nearly 300 yards went to George House. 27 players took part

The draws have also been made for the Dudley Latham Memorial Cup (Premier Division Cup) where we have been given a local derby and entertain LEVERSTOCK GREEN with the winners drawn at HOME to Premier Division newcomers BEDFORD UNITED. Dates to be advised.
