Malling Area Golf Society

2013/14 November 15th Round 8:
Hever Castle Golf Club - The Armistice Cup

Hever Castle is one of the finest Golf and hospitality venues in the South East of England. The course is definitely tough, plenty of water, so you all need to tune up your game. This is one of the courses which tests everyone to the limit and to date above 36 points has proved to be rare. So try and prove me wrong! Bring along a guest or two and they will be made very welcome.

Captain's Match Report

I'm glad to have got a 'dry-run' under my belt for the looming captaincy, piece of cake really, there's nothing to worry about (@Mark P). I think the pro shop staff, club manager and restaurant staff all deserve a big thank you for helping the day run smoothly and providing great service.
Considering how much rain we've had recently I felt the course played quite well. It was a touch boggy in places but nothing worse than you'd expect from Winter golf. I think many of us found the round quite a challenge, I particularly found the speed of the greens difficult to judge. The challenging nature of the course was backed up by the 'lack' of names that made it onto the nearest the pin sheets. I personally used up all my luck on the 12th par 3 through executing a 'dam busters' raid on the green by scaling the foot high sleepers in the bank of the drink with a single skim off the pond.

The winners of each prize can be found below but I feel a special mention must be made for Mark Moore and Chris Lewis who both lost on count back to the overall winner who also happened to be in their division. I'd finally like to also thank Mark Moore for helping with the scores at the end.
See you all at West Malling for some Christmas golf with tipple and mince pies at the mid way point, and of course don't forget your secret santa gifts.
