Annual Dinner

Thursday 9th November 2017

Worlebury Golf Club were again excellent hosts to the 120+ diners who congregated in their clubhouse to attend the 2017 Annual Dinner.

Besides the normal trophies that were to be presented to the champions on the night, we had to make room to display the various trophies that were won by our County sides during the season. These were

  • ​The SWCGA Strokeplay Shield
  • The SWCGA Matchplay Cup
  • The Channel League Salver
  • The SWCGA Boys Strokeplay Shield
  • and the Under 12 4 Counties Strokeplay

​After a splendid meal, we were entertained by a round up of of golf in Somerset in 2017 by the President Paul Middleton,followed by a warm address from a very good friend of the County, Ian Watkins the former President of Glucestershire. Ian was attending in his capacity as a Director of England Golf. 

County Captain Justin Lane was the next to address the audience, concluding with the announcement of Tom Sloman as the Player of the Year. A very difficult decision as their were so many outstanding achievements to choose from, so many congratulations Tom!.

After the presentation of the trophies, which included another impromptu speech from the winning Captain of the Somerset Bowl, we were further entertained by a very amusing talk from the former High Court Judge, His Honour John Roberts. 

There was still plenty of time for the guests to mingle, chat and reminisce with friends old and new before making their way home.

Next year we will be holding the dinner at Taunton & Pickeridge Goll Club, and we hope to have another bumper turnout for what will be sure to be another splendid evening.

Our thanks again to the Members and Staff at Worlebury Golf Club who all worked so hard to make this a night to remember
