Rainbow over the Green

Presidents Trophy
The green opening took place on Saturday 15th April with a match between a President’s team and a Captain’s team. On this occasion the Captain’s team came out on top by 56 shots to 33 on a lovely sunny afternoon and so the President had to present the new trophy to the Vice Captain as the Captain was on holiday.

During our President's Day on Saturday 24th September Mrs Laura Absolom presented a new President's Trophy to the Club President Cliff Geary.

Mrs Absolom is the daughter of Ray Philips who was Club president for 20 years from 1982 to 2002 and the trophy was engraved with the following words:

"Donated in memory of Ray and Kitty Phillips"
