The Christ’s College Alumni Golf Society 2020 season was naturally severely restricted, but they did manage to play the annual match against Fitzwilliam at Guildford Golf Club in August which produced a second consecutive win and some enjoyable socially distanced food and drinks on the patio. Our good friends from Fitz also extended an invitation to our team to play in their society day at The Oxfordshire which a few members took up, and Johnny Phillips duly held up the College reputation by returning the best score of the day by a distance.

St Johns College did not feel able to play the 2020 match for the Lady Margaret Beaufort Trophy, so instead 20 members met up at Denham Golf Club for a Christ’s only social day in October. The event was well received and the team of Ian Ogilvie, Al Darlington, Bill Morgan, and Robert Barnes were victorious in the fourball competition with John Thornton a clear winner of the individual prize.

The society hopes to return to a full programme for 2021 and the provisional dates are as follows:

  1. Wednesday 2nd June Pairs Event for Members & Guests at Beaconsfield Golf Club
  2. Wednesday 11th August Christ’s College v Fitzwilliam College at Henley Golf Club
  3. Friday 3rd September Christ’s Annual Society Day incorporating the “61” club trophy at Gog Magog Golf Club with dinner at College subject to clearance for resumption of in college hospitality functions
  4. Thursday October 7th Christ’s v St Johns College at Denham Golf Club
  5. We are also entering an invited team of six in the inter college day at Gog Magog on Thursday 28th October

 

The Alumni Golf Society now has around 100 members on its mailing list but are keen to attract more members of College to join our group which will enable us to add extra matches or events in future years. Those who have played thus far have thoroughly enjoyed once more representing the College in matches and meeting up with fellow alumni from both Christ’s and the other Colleges we play against.
