  • We started our 26th season at Worplesdon in dry weather which was also unusually warm so no complaints there. The course is very attractive and even when you allow for the bunkers on the first seven holes being out of action due to the work being done on them as part of a general course improvement programme, those who played seemed very happy with their day, no doubt in part because of the excellent food which followed our golf.
  • The meal must have tasted really special to David Taylor as his 41 point round was unlikely to have been bettered on the day and when the results were announced it transpired he had a three point advantage over Clive with Ian Marshall finishing third on 37. This was David’s third day event victory and as if that was not enough, he also lifted the Captain’s Bowl based on a net Strokeplay score of 66. This was an event he would not normally have qualified for – as he was runner up in the Singles KO - but as a result of the withdrawal of Gordon Street David was parachuted in to fill the gap and took full advantage of the opportunity. So well done to him on a great start to the season which was rewarded (if that’s the word) with a two shot handicap cut.
  • The AGM after the prize giving was well attended and Alan Langford was duly elected to take over as Captain after Chris’s outstanding year of office. Alan will start his year on the south coast links of Hayling and we look forward to seeing how he copes with the par three 1 st which can require a wide range of club selection depending on the wind. I am sure though he will get plenty of advice from sons Gary and Tom who will accompany him on his new journey. Have a great year Alan.
  • Members will have received a note from Ian regarding our Data Protection Policy and he reiterated this advice at the AGM. Basically if you do not wish your details to appear on our list which is circulated only to BAGS members, you need to write to myself or Ian to confirm this. Be aware though that in that event it may be more difficult for members to contact you as when I send out group e mails, they are always on a blind copy basis so your e mail address is not shown to other recipients. We feel we have responded in a measured way to the new legislation and hope you agree.
  • John presented the Society Accounts and showed that we are still in good financial health with the ability to subsidise some events and to pay decent deposits for future ones which always helps to nail an attractive price. The good news is that at this stage we see no reason even in 2020 to increase the £70 day cost to members despite the fact that some planned events will cost BAGS more than that figure.
  • At the end of the 2018 we had three more resignations – from past Captain Chris Bower, Richard Dakin and Dan Sayers reducing our current membership to 62. We thank them all for their support but are especially grateful to Chris for his loyalty over the years – he was our second Captain – and I am delighted that we will see him as a guest at Hayling. While on the subject of past Captains, I am delighted to report that Mike Corliss has made a good recovery from his operation and has been pronounced cancer free and not in need of any further treatment. Apparently the tumour was removed just in time, proving once more the wisdom of seeking help if you discover something untoward in your body. Well done Mike and keep up the good work.
  • We are full steam ahead on Charity preparation at the moment and Hedley has already achieved an impressive list of those vital fourballs. Mike Christieson has decided to end his support of our Marsden work this year, preferring to concentrate on helping smaller Charities and while we will miss his help, we are so grateful for his tremendous generosity over the years.
  • If there is anyone with contacts who can help us as a major sponsor, with auction items or anything which can help us build on the £413K we have raised over the years, could they please contact either myself or Hedley as soon as possible as work has already started on the event programme.
  • The Annual Dinner at Clandon Regis went well with excellent food, company and service. We are planning another event there next January.
  • New Captain Alan gave an entertaining and informative presentation on a proposed new BAGS Rule regarding balls which are lost or are hit OOB, the object of which is to avoid the need to go back to the tee thus speeding up the round. If you need clarification on this change which will take effect at events from Hayling onwards, please contact Alan direct.
