Can you believe it? Yet again the end of another golfing year and what a year it's been? One event………………or should I rephrase that "one HGS golfing event" BUT what a year for EVENTS? Absolute nonsense most of it but what can we do? Thankfully our Society has been around for long enough to endure all of these distractions and will be here next year with a very exciting year of golf. Our Captain Rupert Ratcliff has spent the whole year practicing and therefore he and Merv will certainly hit the ground running in 2021 as the perfect "Morecambe & Wise" duo. Seriously as sad as it's been not being able to golf and socialise in the way in which we have become accustomed, I'm sure we've all missed the friendships and golf days very much and will be raring to go ASAP next year.

A one event year
Sadly we only managed the one event this year but as always it was a good one. Celtic Manor in South Wales
was excellent. We played all 3 x courses including the 2010 Ryder Cup course which albeit very difficult was a fabulous experience. The golf throughout was a challenge but the resort did their very
best to look after us and we had a thoroughly good time over the 3 days. Rupert and Merv hosted the event brilliantly and our thanks go to them for doing a great job in the face of
I'm sure I can speak for them in wishing all members and guests a Very Merry Xmas and in particular a Happy & Healthy New Year when we look forward to welcoming you all back to the golf course with our wonderful golfing society.
