The 86th meeting of the Old Oakhamian Golf Society was held at Luffenham Health Golf Club on Saturday 10 June 2023. On the hottest day of the year to date, 15 OOs gathered for the morning round, teed off at 9.30, competing for the Stableford and short holes trophies. Lunch was taken between rounds, and the afternoon round teed off at 2.15. On completion of the golf, weary and somewhat red-faced players gathered for the prize giving as reported below.

Those attending included the prize winners also Tom Wheeler, Oliver Smith, Will Davis, Mark Walker, Chris Palmer, Jamie Lewin, Richard Wilde, Ed Jarron, David Shaw, Bill Whysall, Steven Billyeald, Brian Welford (hon OO), Joe Roberts (OO alumni officer)

Chris Palmer (President), Mark Walker (Captain), Brian Welford (secretary), and Ben Stephens agreed to form the committee.

All OOs’ who play golf are welcome to attend the annual meeting and any other events. The committee are looking to hold a more relaxed meeting at a different course in addition to the annual meeting.

A team comprising Jane Sly, Sarah Barnes, Lesley Tattershall, and Sarah Hillas took part in the Silver Tassie at the Berkshire. Three teams had the same score but sadly, on count back, Oakham came third. Nevertheless, an excellent result in a national competition.

Mark Walker, Chris Palmer, Will Chamberlain, Dylan Ross, James Walters, and Simon Scott played in the Grafton Morrish qualifier at the Gog Magog course. On a difficult day for putting, they missed out on a place in the finals by a small margin.
