We were delighted to be able to play our full programme of events in 2021 despite some restrictions. The annual matches against Fitzwilliam and John’s were both halved, and our team of six was narrowly pipped for first place at the all College alumni event in October. The new Pairs/Guest Day proved to be a popular innovation and those members attending the Society Day at Gog Magog enjoyed the course and being able to dine in College once again. We were pleased to welcome a number of new players to the society and hope that we can continue to increase participation again this year.


All the events for 2022 have now been confirmed with the venues and opponents as follows:


  1. Thursday 12th May. Match versus John’s to be played at Huntercombe Golf Club in a 36-hole foursomes format. Team of 12 with a two-course carvery between rounds. (Cost £125). Match Captain: Guy Whittaker


  1. Thursday 7th July. Pairs Event for Members with the option to bring a Guest at Mill Ride Golf Club in Ascot. Tee times are 10am-11am in better ball stableford format followed by a one-course lunch. Limited to 32 players. (Cost £70)


  1. Wednesday 10th August. Match versus Fitzwilliam College at Farnham Golf Club. Tee times from 1pm with a two-course carvery after golf. (Cost £72). Team of 12 -14 playing better ball match play format. Match Captain: Chris Garden


  1. Friday 23rd September Christ’s Annual Society Day incorporating the “61” club trophy at Royal Worlington Golf Club. Soup and Sandwich lunch followed by golf in three balls in an individual stableford format (Cost £80). Optional dinner back at College. Room reservations for 25 members are being held for those alumni requiring an overnight stay (Cost tbc).


  1. We are also entering an invited team of six in the annual inter-college day at Gog Magog on Tuesday 12th April Match Captain: Gerald Wingrove, who has already selected his team and confirmed with players individually.  


Please advise by email which events you would like to play in by 31st March 2022. The match captains will then endeavour to make sure everyone gets to play in at least some of their chosen days if we are oversubscribed for any match. In early April we will then contact you again to confirm your participation and advise the finer details.


Lastly, some members have enquired about the Christ’s College Navy Polo Shirts that are worn by many players. These are no longer available through (the now closed) Clothiers but can be purchased online through Ryder and Amies.


Looking forward to seeing many of you on the fairways in 2022!
