Welcome to new members Guy Gibbons, Alex Obiato, Jonathan Ross-Russell, Simon McGregor Wood, Luke Pendlebury, Bob Hill, Scott Milner, Chris Carter and Caitlin Mackellar. We hope you enjoy being part of the club.
We have played two matches recently – against Mitcham (home and away), and against Chipstead (home). Following a competitive 3-3 draw at home to Mitcham we suffered a disappointing 6-0 defeat away. Our home match with Chipstead finished in a 3-3 draw.
We finished a respectable 2nd out of six teams in the annual Royal Wimbledon Putting Competition. Representing LSGC were Jim Boyes, David Paul, Tommy Tighe and Calum Bavin. A notable mention should go to David Paul, who won five out of his six matches. The competition was won by Malden Golf Club.
We also competed in the annual Triangular competition, played between LSGC, Wimbledon Common GC and Royal Wimbledon. The competition was won by Wimbledon Common GC, who hosted this year’s event. And we came 4th out of five local clubs in the Silver Jubilee, held this year at Wimbledon Park GC, with Royal Wimbledon winning the event.
Thanks to all those members who represented the club in these matches.
The draw for the knockout competitions has now been made, though at the time of writing the draw sheets are not yet up in the clubhouse. They will be soon and we will also email round a list of first round ties, as well as putting details up on the website. Please try to arrange matches as quickly as you can; by getting the early rounds completed promptly we can help ensure that there are no delays later on in the competitions. We are aware that members' contact details are not yet up on the new website but we will be adding them shortly so you can get in touch with your opponents.
