The Prince Arthur Cup dates from 1927 and this year comprised 48 teams of four golfers from participating livery companies playing foursomes. The competition is played over 36 holes at the Walton Heath Golf Club with a break for an excellent lunch between rounds. The course was in very good condition and it is always a joy to play if not somewhat challenging. The weather was fine in the morning but unfortunately deteriorated to a rather showery afternoon.
Feltmakers 1 comprised Geoffrey Vero and Gerry Higginson and Feltmakers 2 comprised the Master, Jeremy Brassington and Nicholas Lee. We were playing with teams from the Bakers and the International Bankers.
The Merchant Taylors won the Cup and the Builders Merchants were runners-up. Feltmakers 1 had a difficult morning but a better afternoon, Feltmakers 2 had a reasonable morning but then went downhill in the afternoon. Overall, we came 33rd out of 48 but still had a very enjoyable day.
