The OCs approached the 2017 Halford Hewitt with a cautious optimism. On the one hand we were fielding one of strongest teams for years, although that optimism was tempered by the knowledge that we were facing Eton, 12 time winners, victorious in both 2013 and 2015. Sadly the OCGS curse of ill health/injury forced the […]
I am pleased to tell you that the 2016 OCGS Matchplay winner is Mark Burridge. The final was played yesterday at Sunningdale (many thanks Marcus for hosting us) and Mark was always in control and ran out an easy winner against myself. He has won it a few times before so best of luck to […]
We have another tough draw – Eton. It’s at RSG at 10h50 on Thursday 6 April. At least its great timing for a good lunch. Back to back years drawing winners in 2014 and 2015. http://www.halfordhewitt.org/2017_halford_hewitt_draw/
The OCGS played in the Grafton Morrish finals at Hunstanton last weekend. We fielded a strong team which mixed seasoned players with some of the younger players, two of whom were rookies in this competition. We were drawn against Bury Grammar in the first round. On a perfect day for golf, Cranleigh made a fast […]
THE BUNNY MILLARD A fantastic win this year for Cranleigh with Richard Sykes and Ian Borrow taking the trophy from Mill Hill winning by 1up! They were also best qualifiers with 26 points which is no mean achievement off scratch and having not scored at the first and second holes. I caddied for Richard in […]
We had an excellent day at Blackmoor yesterday. Many thanks to Max for the lunchtime wine and the extra prizes, David Willis for organising much of it and Peter W-H as host. We had 32 players so an excellent turnout. The winners were: Scratch Salver – Tony Whitty 73 Hugh Orr Trophy – Adam Willson […]
Following on from last year’s run to the quarter finals the OCGS squad went into the 2016 campaign in an optimistic mood. The stats supported this assertion – Cranleigh are the most improved school over the last 10 years. The draw in January pitted us against the 2014 winners, Merchiston, and things became more concerning […]
Cranleigh will face Merchiston in the first round of this year’s Halford Hewitt. They tee off at 8.55am at Deal on Thursday 7 April and as always your support on the day is much appreciated.
Society stalwart Adam Willson has finally got his hands on this coveted trophy with a hard fought 1up win over Sterling Grol at Wildernesse Golf Club. The trophy presentation will take place at this year’s Halford Hewitt.
We again entered the Queen Elizabeth Coronation Schools Tournament played at the Royal Burgess Golf Club in Edinburgh. In the first round we drew the home team, Edinburgh Academicals who we know well as we share the same accommodation at the Hewitt. We won the first pair comfortably with Marc Sadler playing some excellent golf […]
