Hi Fellow Golfer!!

Just a small note to thank you for all for attending the FCC Golf Day last Friday (7th October).

Well done to Karl Boffey on his winning score of 36 points.

I know from the emails that I have received over the weekend, it would appear to have been a success?

Thank you for your generous support to the raffle & 'mulligans', which raised close to £500, the exact figures yet to be finalised. This money will help club funds & most importantly the further support to our flourishing colts section.

I would like to thank Leigh Marshall & our friends at the Hockey Club & Philip Clapham of Smith Woolley Chartered Surveyors for their generous donations. I would also like to thank Robert Winstanley of Winstanley Windows.com for their generous supply of the trophies, as well as Robert's support on the day.

Thank you to the Hampshire Stragglers who made the journey & all the members & guests who supported the event.

I have booked next year's Golf Day for Friday 6th October 2017, so please all put this in your diary!

Any FCC members who wish to step forward to assist in organising, that would be great?

Thank you all for your support!
Cheers, Stuart
As you mentioned in your excellent newsletter Karl Boffey with 36 stableford pts. was deservedly crowned our Champion Golfer of the Year.

Our old friends, The 'world famous' Hampshire Stragglers Golf Society were again in scintillating form on and off the Etchinghill course.
As a team they were unstoppable and overpowered the hosts in the Ryder Cup format.
As a result, their captain the venerable Andy Heyes, duly picked up The Peter Sumpter Trophy for the first time.

Other highlights of some memorable scores were former FCC leggie John Champion amassing a cool 21pts on his debut.
Despite JC carding an admirable birdie 2 at the tricky 11th hole he still collected the dreaded 'Booby' prize from organiser Stuart Ingleston.

Nick Shaw, the manager of Three Hills Sports Park picked up the 'Longest drive trophy' for his monster effort of over 280 yds on the very windy 13th hole.

and finally that veritable local sportsman Julian Glenister, struck an unbeatable short iron to within 6ft on the 17th and duly won the 'nearest the pin award'.

Well played to all those who took part in this ever popular event held annually in memory of our dear friend and greatly missed club stalwart, Peter Sumpter.

As always, the presentation of prizes took place after a pleasant Dinner in the clubhouse and our esteemed Club President, Bill Hewson joined us for the evening's fun and entertainment.

Huge thanks must also go to our Vice President, Rob Winstanley who once again very generously sponsored the coveted trophies.

*All FCC golfers and friends are again welcome to enter the 2017 event to be held on Friday 6th October at Etchinghill GC*

Best Regards
