Red Lion Golf Day – 28th May 2016

golf day may 2016

The latest Red Lion Golf Day took place on Friday 27th May with 48 keen golfers once again descending on Bletchingley Golf Club. The weather also co-operated with bright blue skies and heaps of sunshine.

After a bacon roll and coffee the competition commenced at 10am with the group playing off the 1st and 10th tees to speed up the completion of the round.

There was an individual competition as well as a team prize involving the scoring using a “Golden Ball”. Basically the idea is to keep the Golden Ball in play as long as possible. One team (the authors!) lost it on the very first hole!! Which caused some barracking for a team member for the rest of the round!

On completion of the golf it was back to the Red Lion for a late lunch and some well-earned refreshment, this was followed by a prize giving. There was also a presentation to Tracey of £240 collected for the SSAFA charity, which is the pubs chosen charity.
