Event Organisers Wanted

SWOC is planning to put on monthly events in 2020 as well as a Christmas score on the 29th December this year. We are looking for people to plan / organise these events. The SWOC League Events will consist of 4 courses Blue, Green, Orange and Yellow with the capability of creating a Short Green course where possible.  Support will be given to anyone inexperienced.

If you can help please let me know with your preferred option. At present there may be some flexibility with regard to dates and venues but I will be contacting landowners for permissions shortly. If you are unable to commit this year can also reply to save me attempting to contact you again.

The details of the planned events are as follows.

Compassport Cup

Thanks to everyone who made the long trip to the Compassport cup final in Sussex last weekend. SWOC came 7th out of 12 small clubs in the Trophy competition. We were quite close to the 2 clubs above us but with only 19 runners and 13 to count there wasn’t much room for error. Our best scorers were Clare Dallimore and Gill Manning who both got 100pts, Matt Whipple with 98 and Anne May on 96. Next years final I think is in Birmingham so if we get through wont be as far to go.
