ROGS (Royal Oak Golf Society) is affiliated to Bere Regis Sports Club and uses the club as it’s venue for meetings and social events, other than golf of course! This page has the captain’s monthly reports:
Ex Landlords Cup 2018
30 ROGS members and 2 guests turned it in beautiful sunshine for the Ex Landlords Cup kindly sponsored by good friend Mr Mark Teed. It was played at the beautifully manicured Salisbury golf course situated adjacent to Salisbury Racecourse. The day was started once again with an FA cup style live draw which once again threw up some interesting groups.
The ROGS toiled in the humid conditions and returned some impressive scores, with all of the top 3 players returning a very respectable 37 points. In 3rd position was our resident 1 handicap golfer Julian “The Hook” Flower, in second position was “The Gun Slinger” Mark Clapcott, and the winner for the day was yours truly, The Captain…..well played to all.
The nearest the pin were won by Peter “The Abacus” Cheeseman, and Jim Goodey, nearest the pin in 2 was won by Harry Smith, who drove the green and holed for a 2! Lastly the nearest the line competition was won by Roger “Cueball” Johns.
There was a rollover from the previous month with the 2’s, where we more than made up for it this month by sinking 6 of them, congratulations to Julian, Brett, Captain, Jim, Colin & Harry!
After the prize giving we held the third of our monthly raffles where I am again overwhelmed with the ROGS generosity as we managed to raise a fantastic £188 for the Captain’s Charities of Diabetes UK and Epilepsy….thank you so much once again.
I look forward to seeing you all at the next ROGS game at Manor House GC just outside Castle Coombe on June 29th first tee off 2pm.
Jim Corbin Cup 2018
26 hardcore ROGS members and 1 guest braved the elements in driving rain and high winds for the second outing of the season kindly sponsored by Jim Corbin. It was played at the beautifully manicured High Post golf course situated just to the north of Salisbury. It is worth noting that the Captain has been worse than Michael Fish in predicting the weather as last months’ game was rained off for only the second time in ROGS 19-year history!
The day was started once again with an FA cup style live draw which threw up some interesting groups and worth noting that Mr Price turned up bright and breezy with the captain and then had to wait 2 hours before teeing off last…..that’s the luck of the draw Pricey!!
We had a plethora of lowish scores with the average score being only 25 points in treacherous conditions. However, in third place with a 34 points was yours truly, Captain Tiny (beating Kris “mukka” Meehan on countback), in second place with a great score of 35 points was housewives favourite Paul Ebsworth, and the winner scoring a magnificent 37 points (including 23 on the back 9 holes alone) was Jim Goodey….well played Jim!
The nearest the pin were won by Ian “Skeletor” Spalding, and our guest for the day Tristan Gale, nearest the pin in 2 was won by Sir Charles Way! Lastly the nearest the line competition was also won by my VC for the season Ian “Skeletor” Spalding.
Unsurprisingly given the conditions there were no 2 twos scored on the day both!
After the prize giving we held the second of our monthly raffles where I am again overwhelmed with the ROGS generosity as we managed to raise a fantastic £153 for the Captain’s Charities of Diabetes UK and Epilepsy….thank you so much once again.
I look forward to seeing you all at the next ROGS game at Salisbury GC on March 25th first tee off 12 midday.
Members Challenge 2018
24 hardcore ROGS members braved the elements in freezing temperatures but glorious sunshine for the Captains first game of the new season kindly sponsored by Graeme Price.
The day was started with an FA cup style live draw which added excitement and nervousness to whom you would be paired with, and most importantly relying on the members to be at the venue 45 minutes before the first tee at 10am. Much to my amazement, everybody was there present and on parade in plenty of time…….. I knew I could count on the ROGS!
We had a multitude of scores ranging from 18 points, I won’t divulge by whom, but for those of you who enjoy a countdown conundrum, here is a clue Corbin Jim. In third place with a tremendous score of 35 points was Martin “The Noise” Debenham, in second place on countback, playing off a handicap of 2 with 37 points was Julian “Howlin Mad” Flower, and the winner, again with 37 points winning on the back 6 holes was Peter “The Accountant” Cheeseman!
The nearest the pins were won by The VC and Mark “Gunslinger” Clapcott, the latter of which also took nearest the pin in 2!
Longest drive was won by The President Mr Mark Teed with his 20-year-old driver!
There were also 2 twos scored on the day both by my VC for the season Ian “Skeletor” Spalding
After the prize giving we held the first of our monthly raffles where I am overwhelmed with the ROGS generosity as we managed to raise a fantastic £163 for the Captain’s Charities of Diabetes UK and Epilepsy….thank you so much once again.
I look forward to seeing you all at the next ROGS game at Weymouth GC on Good Friday, March 30th first tee off 10:30.
