The Golf Society
The second half of the season started with a return visit to Westerham Golf Club in July where we held an individual stableford competition along with a team event. The team event was won by Brian Skilton, Alex Jack and Richard Mole with the individual competition being won by Sam Armadass with an excellent 38 points. Paul Fuller won both the nearest the pin and nearest the pin in two.
14 players turned out for our September golf day which was a return visit to Ifield Golf Club after a number of years absence. The day incorporated our usual individual stableford competition with a team event. The team event was won by Brian Skilton, Gavin Hall, John Tranter and Mark Cresswell. The individual competition was won with an impressive 39 points by Mark Harrop with Richard Mole in runners up spot. Mark also won nearest the pin and Richard nearest the pin in two.
The HASSRA Nationals took place in September at the Warwickshire Golf Club with our representatives Steve Stockham, Gavin Hall and Julie Woods producing probably one of our best ever performances in this event. Julie winning the ladies scratch event and both men producing some great golf.
The final event of the season was the Captains Day being held at Woldingham golf club. This was captain Steve Stockham’s last event as Captain before Brian Skilton takes over for the next year. 14 players made it for the day which was made up of a team event along with an individual stableford for the Captains Day trophy. The team event was won by John Tranter and Wayne Catlin closely followed by Gavin Hall, Mark Dunn and Carlo Barbeiri. The main event was won by Wayne Catlin with an excellent 43 points followed by Carlo with 42 and Mark Cresswell with 39 points. Nearest the pin went to Sam Armadass and nearest the pin in two to Richard Mole.

If you are interested in the HASSRA South East Golf Society...
HASSRA South East has a thriving Golf Society which is open to any HASSRA South East member to join. Whether you are new to the game, an established player or somewhere in between, why not come along to one of our golf days for an enjoyable day out with a great group of people.
What can you expect? Well, all seven of the golf days below include coffee/bacon roll, 18 or 27 holes of golf followed by a one course meal. The cost for the golf day to each member is generally between £30 and £40 per person per event dependent upon the charge made by the individual golf club.
We currently enter teams in matches against other Regions and in CSSC events. With the help of the HASSRA grant we support the cost for all events to varying degrees to make them good value for money for the players.
Players can also qualify as part of the SE team at the HASSRA national event each year via our qualifying golf day. We try and arrange our golf days somewhere along the M25 corridor south of London as we have a large area to cover. We encourage car sharing to help keep costs down as current players come from most parts of the Region.
A taster day for anyone interested is planned for later in the year.
We welcome HASSRA members of all standards so, if you are an enthusiastic golfer or simply interested in finding out if golf is for you please get in touch for more details!
