OFGS Autumn 2008 Meeting Report
The OFGS Autumn Meeting was held at Aldeburgh GC on Friday 12th September. It was attended by 22 OF’s who battled bravely through the wettest morning’s golf many could remember at an OFGS meeting. After a hot shower and a well earned drink and lunch, and with the rain finally relenting, most of the bedraggled survivors played 9 holes foursomes in the afternoon before retiring to the bar for another well earned drink and prize giving. Special mention should be made of Roger Wharton, a new member this year to both the OFGS and Aldeburgh GC, who had the best score of day with 40 points, best scratch score and best combined total for the Spring and Autumn Meetings.
