W Davies Golf Day 2016

Andrew Cohen

The W Davies Golf Day took place on Merrow Downs, at the Guildford Golf Club on 16th September 2016.

The weather overnight had involved biblical amounts of rain, but, true to form, the Guildford Golf Course sucked it all up and despite a delayed start, the full programme of morning singles was completed. Many thanks to the ground staff at GGC and their “can do” management team.

After a wholesome and traditional lunch, the Texas Scramble Competition took place in the afternoon, after which our guests retired exhausted for a well-earned dinner and the award of prizes which fell out as set out below. Many congratulations to our winners and thanks to our guests for attending.
