Last Updated: Friday, 16 October 2015
David Turnbull, OFGS Hon. Sec. writes: "A battle royal took place with the College in the annual fixture on Friday, 9th October!
On a lovely autumn afternoon, lunch was enjoyed at Aldeburgh Golf Club with Dougal Lyon, Head of Golf, Tom Huggins, Marketing Manager, Susan Wessels, Deputy Head and Simon Sinclair, Director of Sport at the College joining us. Tom and Dougal then played in the afternoon.
Twelve singles matches took place, with the OF's running out narrow victors 7-5. Click Read more for further details of who played and the scores.
There is some exciting young talent coming through at the College, which bodes well for the future, and is a great credit to Dougal Lyon; most notably at this stage is Archie Winter playing off a handicap of 6! The OF team was not a shabby bunch either, with some younger members and some wise old heads. Thank you to all who took part on a thoroughly enjoyable day, and to the Aldeburgh Club for hosting us in their usual exemplary manner.
