Burhill in Glorious Sunshine

A great day out was had by 18 members and 15 guests playing the old course at Burhill, a new venue for EPIC and one I’m sure we’ll return to next year!

A ploughman’s lunch greeted guests and members alike followed by a sort game clinic prior to the main event starting at 1.10 from the first tee.

The short game clinic didn’t seem to assist many players as the scores lay testament to the difficulty of the read and speed of the greens – fast and with some amazing borrows!!

Burhill Golf Club and their staff were magnificent throughout the day and we were treated to a great 3 course dinner in the clubhouse.

We received a complimentary driver from the cancelled  golf tour to La Baule this year and Captain Iain supported by committee elected to raffle that for Ken Adams’s chosen charity Rosie’s Rainbow Trust. The driver was won by guest (soon to be member, we hope) Stewart Kirkwood. The raffle raised an amazing £590, congratulations to all who participated.

Left over from the AGM 2020, the following

Neil Blundy – Last years Captain presented Robert Seeley with his replica trophy for his win at the La Cala Tour 2019

After dinner Captain, Iain Stevenson, presented prizes for Burhill as follows.

Guest Glen Payne – Nearest the Pin
Steven Barker – Nearest the Pin in 2
Suzanne and John Biscoe – Team Prize

The Guest Prize was won by Tony Humberstone playing off 9 with a magnificent 37 points. Tony was unable to stay for dinner.

Iain Stevenson (2nd on 34 points and losing to) Gavin Tuck presented the Captains’ Cup to him having lost on count-back!!!  Well done Gavin Cut 2 and bad luck Iain Cut 1!!

Thanks to all who attended and a reminder that we hope to keep the event at Abridge 15th October 2020 live following HMG’s latest Covid changes. More later!!!
