Herm Rough Golf Weekend 2018 (Friday 5 - Sunday 7 October)
What's a little bit of rain!
Some 30 Rotarians, partners and guests travelled to Herm at the weekend to take part in our annual Rough Golf challenge weekend. This consisted of two nights where we were privileged to have almost exclusive use of The White House Hotel.
If you do not know what Rough Golf entails please view the photos. The game does involve ONE golf club each and a little round ball. But thereafter the similarities with the recognized game of golf rapidly fade. It is certainly not onerous, hardly serious and definitely not the jealously guarded preserve of check sweaters and the ‘plus fours’.
Those arriving early on Friday saw Herm at its very best. Blue waters and clear air bathed in warm sunshine. The golf conditions were a little less clement the following day as we faced a heavy sky and strengthening winds. However, whilst all teams ended up rather wet, all had completed the course before the strong wind and heavy rain arrived.
The course was set up (and taken down) once again by Art with the help of Nigel Dorey, Dave Parish, Tony Spruce, Peter Duport and Paul Watts. The brain sapping Quiz was, again, provided by Jan Leadbeater. Many thanks to them both – we all had a fabulous time.
Two Gourmet dinners were splendidly provided by the Hotel’s catering staff and Saturday’s meal was followed by a rather light-hearted prize giving.
We do not propose to announce prizewinners here to spare blushes. But suffice it to say most people are there to enjoy the fun and a sensible handicap system is still under development!
On Sunday morning we left Herm almost as we had arrived – a bit more wind than Friday but fairly smooth seas, sun, and the Islands looking their best.
Thanks Art & Jan – another great social event, well delivered! After organising this highly successful event for 6 years Art & Jan are stepping down and the organisation now passes to the 'Sports & Social' Committee.
