Putney Park Open
Whilst RPGC performed well taking 3 of the 4 first positions, the winner was C. Dearling of Centurians. Dave Winter was 2nd for RPGC on a back 3 count back from Tony Kopczak.
Early PP manual results delivered with first 5 positions clearly identified – later processing by HandicapMaster furnishing traditional count back positions throughout.
Men’s CSS remained at SSS 70.
The Club secured a Home win with a strong squad and takes a 4-2 lead to Rickmansworth in August.
The Ladies managed a comfortable win against Amida in their very first annual friendly match.
Result: Win 3-1
On Saturday 21st June an 8 strong team played the first friendly match away at the 9 hole course at Amida in Twickenham.
Format for the day was 4 ball better ball match play and the Richmond Park team played convincingly to win 3-1. Thanks to all who played.
The team received a very warm welcome from the Amida Ladies and we look forward to meeting up again in 2009.
Rickmansworth – Home Leg
Result: 4-2 Win
With several members who had not played for the club before, a strong team was mustered for the home leg of this year’s match against Rickmansworth Golf Club. The pairings were :-
Richard Owen & Stan Potts
Gurpal Sekhon & Michael Rossiter
Graeme Syme & Nigel Ward
Ian Smith & Sandy Willison
Paul Grand & Toby Hunt
Jon Cooper & Tony Kopchez
The weather was similar to that we have endured for most of this summer: cool, windy and with some dampness in the air. Although many of the Rickmansworth players know our course very well, home advantage almost certainly played its part in us securing 3 wins and two draw, to their one win, giving us a 4-2 advantage to take to Rickmansworth in August. Several of the matches were very close and a good time was had by all.
After the match, both teams retired to the Dysart Arms , where we enjoyed a steak dinner and speeches (largely drowned out by the pianist).
Simon Beard clinched the Golden Jubilee with a 3 over par gross 72 net 62.

Summer Cup / Monthly Medal
A warm sunny day and more run on the ball resulted in some excellent scores in the ladies’ June Monthly Medal. In 1st place was Jini Beacham with a scorching net 68, closely followed by Janet Fox on net 69, and Jayne Maxwell in 3rd (71).
There was no change to the SSS (71).
John Morris produced a fine round of golf to claim the Summer Cup with 37 points – 1 ahead of Paul Robinson, Paul Doran and Graeme Syme. John’s card told a story – out in 23, back in 14; 4 â€˜blobs’, no 1 pointers and two 4 pointers. Well done John and there’s bags of potential there.
CSS was unchanged from SSS 35 points with John dropping to 23 and Paul Robinson to 25.
Paul Grand has provided a few photos of the progress of the works around the portacabin.
The Ladies are only just behind after the away leg of the annual friendly match.
