OSGS GOLF DAY 26th April 2017
24 Old Seafordians, 4 masters and 3 Students entered this year’s event held at North Hants Golf Club (nr. Fleet) The Society chose North Hants, to improve the golfing experience for everyone, by playing one of the top courses in our area, and one that holds the qualifying competition for the Grafton Morrish Old Boys competition.
The course was in superb condition with pretty generous fairways but some very tricky greens. Scores were generally modest, but everyone thoroughly enjoyed the day. One or two, however, managed to tame the course; not least the Headmaster John Green with 37 stableford points, but the winner of the Cat 2 Comp (handicap 13 and above, playing off yellow tees) was David Poulson with 39 points. The winner of Cat 1 Comp ( handicaps up to 12, playing off white tees) was Mathew Rose with 35 points. Jonny Green topped the students with a magnificent 39 points.
All in all a great day.

OSGS GOLF DAY - WEDNESDAY 26th APRIL 2017 - NORTH HANTS GOLF CLUB
We shall be holding our 4th OSGS Golf Day at North Hants Golf Club, Nr Fleet in Hampshire. This is a top quality course which is used for qualifying rounds of the UK Open, inter county events and the public Schools Grafton Morrish competition that we enter every year. Many of you will also know that it is local golfing Mecca being the home to our major champ', Justin Rose. Playing this venue will greatly increase the golfing experience for our members and will benefit our OSGS team as it prepares for the Grafton Morrish qualifying round to be played in May.
The day will start around 9.30am, with Coffee & bacon rolls. The 3 ball Stableford Competition will start around 10.00 am. and then followed by a 2 course meal with prize giving and a short AGM meeting.
We will again have two separate competitions for both low and high handicap entries. Whilst we wish to encourage and welcome higher handicap players the maximum handicap for the Stableford competion prizes will be 28. However there will also be prizes, for longest drives and nearest the pin, which anyone can win.
We have posted an entry form on the website LINK TO GOLF ENTRY FORM so please complete this and follow the instructions for payment of fees which will lead you to the LINK TO SHOP (link active from 11th Jan) PLEASE NOTE THE EVENT IS NOW FULL SO WE HAVE REMOVED THE SHOP ENTRY. PLEASE CONTACT US IF YOU WISH TO PLAY VIA THE CONTACT BUTTON.
Obviously a day out on a course of this calibre, including all food and prizes, is not cheap, so we have had to increase the entry fee slightly to £70 per player. However if you are under 28 years of age, there is a concessionary fee of £40 per player.
We feel confident that you will agree that these rates are good value for money and encourage you to sign up quickly. Please note, we shall need to restrict numbers, so first come first served! We shall try to pair up those players who require buggies so please let us know in advance. This is social occasion as well as a golf comp' and all Old Seafordians are welcome to play or simply join us for a catch up after play.
