On the 18 May, 18 members of the OP Golf Society met up for our annual summer meeting at Beaconsfield Golf Club.  

After fuelling up on coffee and bacon rolls and retrieving one wayward buggy from the flower beds by the clubhouse, we all started our morning round competing for the prize of the Presidents Cup.  The completed scorecards reflected that it was a challenging course but the overall winner was Ken Jones with 37 stableford points off a handicap of 10.  

We also competed for the nearest the pin on the 5th hole and the nearest the hole in two shots on the 18th. These are always good side shows to the morning round with the winner of the nearest to the pin being Charlie Parry and the nearest in two was George Gale.  

After a feast of a lunch, of which we were pleased our Chairman Phillip Plato was able to join us, we headed back out onto the course to compete for the Simon Broome and Stephen Walker Memorial Foursomes Bowl. This year we competed for this over 12 holes which enabled us to have a more relaxed prize giving ceremony before everybody had to rush off. The afternoon winners of the Memorial Bowl were John Cooke and George Gale.  

It was the first time we had played at Beaconsfield GC and we were treated to a great day out, on a fine and challenging course, with excellent hospitality within the clubhouse.   The golf society plan to meet up there again on the 7th June 2023
