The Master’s Golf Day was held at Camberley Heath Golf Club on a beautiful afternoon in early May. Liverymen and their guests were treated to the very best of heathland courses, a course designed by Harry Colt in 1913.
There was a different format this year with prizes awarded to the best team in addition to the best individual score. The teams were mixed (not, as some would claim, to ensure that a lady won a prize but much more realistically to ensure that a man won a prize!)
The winning team comprised Anthony Philips, Daphne Higginson, Keith Pledger (whose score was ‘borrowed from another team’!) and Alan Dick, guest of the Higginsons.
The Nearest the Pin prize was won by Bob Cackett, guest of Keith Pledger, and the individual prize was won by Gerry Higginson.
The golf was followed by dinner in the Captain’s Bar of the Clubhouse overlooking the course as the sun set. The Master and Rosemary had met for drinks with the golfers and other guests beforehand and, after an excellent dinner, presented the prizes which the Master had generously donated.
All in all, a wonderful day. Numbers were down on previous years due, we think, to the plethora of holidays which preceded the event, but the friendliness and efficiency of all the staff at Camberley Heath made everyone want to return there.
