In 2018 we have 36 Vets' matches arranged with other clubs mainly on a home and away basis and also two matches with Eaton Ladies. Our grateful thanks again goes to MIke Searle for the sterling work he does each year in arranging these matches.
Our full fixture list will be displayed on the Vets' notice board just outside the inner entrance to the men's changing room. This is also the location for the entry list for each match which will be displayed around one month prior to the match.

Pinching Tankard - Thursday 15th March 2018
The Vet’s golfing season kicked off with the Pinching Tankard on Thursday 15th March. As Vet’s Captain I was very honoured to arrange the competition and present the trophy and prizes to the winners. However, I have to say that I was a little disappointed with the turn out on the day; which is played not only as a tribute to the late Barry Pinching but also as a great opportunity to raise funds for Prostate Cancer .
Golf on the day was enjoyed by all the competitors playing in this team event - just as Barry would have wanted. With the best two scores of the four team players counting on each hole. The team of David Kelly, Chris Cooper, Colin Williams and myself achieved a very creditable score of 85 stableford points. However, the winning team of Ian Farr, Chris Lockhart, David Hill and Mike Dean went one better to take the Pinching Tankard with a great team score of 86 points – very well done!
Our Club Captain kindly offered his services as club photographer to capture the presentation of the prizes to the winners, thank-you Anthony.
Finally, I am pleased to report that a donation of £60 will be heading to our supported cancer charity.
