In Memoriam - Cyril O`Dell & Gordon Carr

It is with regret that we have to inform you that two Highwaymen have passed away in the last few weeks, Cyril O'Dell and Gordon Carr.

Cyril had been recently diagnosed with terminal cancer and spent his last few days in a local hospice where he passed away peacefully on Sunday 15th April. Our thoughts are with his family and loved ones at this very sad time. We don't have funeral details yet.

Gordon passed away on 20th March after a short illness and his funeral was on 11th April. At 95 Gordon was our eldest HWM, a lovely man and he will be sorely missed.

Change to date of Elliott Cup 1st Round

Because of the course conditions, the HWM Committee decided to postpone the 1st round of the Elliott Cup to 19th April (from 12th Apr). Let's hope the weather (and hence course) is better by then !!

Kim Short Trophy 2018

Many congratulations to Laurie Morse for winning the Kim Short Trophy. Laurie scored 36 points, winning on countback from Roger Smith. 

And with only 4 clubs and a putter - who needs to lug around 14 clubs !! Well done Laurie

2017/18 Eclectic (Thomson Cup) Result

Congratulations to Malcolm Lucas on winning the 2017/18 Eclectic competition with a score of 65.6 shots. Malcolm missed the final round, so sweated it out whilst the other contenders tried to improve their scores.

It was a close run thing with Laurie Morse in second place scoring 65.95, Howard Somerville in 3rd scoring 66.3 and Paul Buchanon 4th with 66.35. So the first 4 places were separated by just 0.75 of a shot -  just think of those short putts missed guys !!!

Well done Malcolm - the second time in four years that he has won the Eclectic.

 

2017/18 Highwaymen Winter Pairs result

Congratulations to Terry Kilbane and Tony Tilly on defeating Gerald and Maurice in the final of the Winter Pairs. It was a close run match - being decided on the 17th green.

1st April 2018

Well as the saying goes, In like a lion and out like a lamb, add to that the winds of March, plus the snow and rain and that about sums up the month of March. During the month the 7th and final round of the Eclectic was played, and congratulations goes to the winner Malcolm Lucas. This month the Inter club matches will commence with Milford at (home) on the 5th, followed by Sutton Green (away) match on the 9th, Test Valley (away) on the 17th and Chobham (home) on the 26th. The draw for the Costello Bowl will be up on the notice board this coming week. The 1st round of the Elliott Cup which was moved from the March date due to the poor weather conditions and will now be played on the 12th April. The Baxter Trophy Texas Scramble with the Ladies will be held on the 2nd May and the sign up sheet for this will be up on the notice board after the Easter break.

You may have read in the Parish Notices (29th March) that our fellow Highwayman Robin Saunders returned from his epic voyage as a crew member in the Round The World Yatch Race. The section he completed was from Freemantle, to Sydney, then taking part in the Sydney/Hobart Race and onwards to northern China, some 12000miles in all, congratulation to Robin for completing such a challenge.

Now lets hope and look forward to the weather changing for the better as we enter the start of the spring/summer knockouts and various events.

Happy Golfing,
