Well done to Ray Steele who, on 20th April 2017 on the 17th at Tylney Park, achieved the very first hole in 1 in the societies history. It only took 11753 previous attempts!
It has now been 664 t-shots on par 3's since the last hole in 1!
10th November 2017
Once again the weather gods were feeling benevolent and on a bright but humid day a bakers dozen of Bunkers stalwarts converged on the Leatherhead course. Somewhat damp under foot, which is normal for this track and , with most shots requiring at least an extra club in the heavy air , scoring was on low side.
Few started the round with much confidence although the name selection for the sweep meant that John T, John F and Ian T all picked their own names out of the hat. John T's confidence was at such a high level that he suggested John F swap names. Of course the totally unexpected happened and John T snagged the win (unfortunately too late for this years Order of Merit). In a massive show of generosity, John F donated his ill gotten gains to the fines pot (good on you John, it won't happen again).
A good day was had by all but there were dark murmurs of revolution when the evening meal was an excellent steak pie with vegetables and sticky toffee pudding with custard and ice cream. "What happened to the chicken and crumble" some were heard to cry. Can't please all of the people all of the time!.
