Chris Johns, captain of the Middlesex Masonic Golf Club, scooped up most of the honours at the club’s Open golf day, held at Northwood Golf Club on 5 September.
However the combination of excellent weather, a course in great condition and excellent camaraderie meant that all 32 golfers who competed for the numerous trophies and prizes were winners on the day.
The event was capped by a dinner where the golfers were joined by a number of guests to toast their success.
The roll of honour was as follows:
Norman Moore Cup – Chris Johns
Whately Cup – Chris Johns
Littler Smith Cup – Hyllendune Lodge No 7206
Martin Scratch Cup – Chris Johns
Horace Severn Cup – Middlesex Province
The Visitors Cup – Harry Sesslor
In addition, the nearest the pin competitions were won by Tim Fellows at hole 3 and Andy Lloyd at hole 15; nearest in two on hole 17 was won by John Burgon; and longest drive on hole 18 was won by Adam Lovejoy.
The success of the event marks a welcome uptick in fortunes for the club – it had been cancelled in previous years due to lack of support.
The club is keen to build on this success and add new members, hoping to increase the numbers attending golf days. Guests are also welcome, which could prove a useful way to introduce potential new Masons to the craft.
A list of events for 2020 will be available shortly.
