The Final Meeting report 2018/2019 season Derllys Court Golf Club
The Final golf meeting of the 2018/2019 Masonic year, was held at Derllys Court Golf Club on Friday 3rd May 2019
The first meeting of the society was due to take place in September 2018 but sadly because of lack of support and Dining difficulties at the venue It was cancelled, so this seasons competitions were confined to one meeting.
Nineteen golfers together with one guest played , representing Tenby, Cambrian, Loyal Welsh Peterwell and Castlemartin Lodges presided over by Captain and secretary Wo. Bro Mike Bradney which started with obligatory Bacon rolls and coffee and then golfers went on to compete in the final event of 2018/19 for the annual trophies.
Derllys Court Golf Club provided their Always superb hospitality and catering; Our thanks go the Walters family once again for their help. It made for a very pleasant Day for all..
The course generally was in good condition but necessary work on the greens meant that they were not at their usual high standard, however some good scores were recorded and the golfers enjoyed an excellent days golf
At the conclusion of the golf and meal, the Captain Wo bro. Mike Bradney thanked our one guest and Masons for turning up and contributing to another successful day. He also thanked Wo bro. Brian Williams for his assistance on the day.
Thanks were expressed to Mike Bradney for his organisation of the event and for continuing as secretary as Bro Danny Overend now worked away is Scotland and had been unable to take on the role of secretary.
The next event in September (the first of the new season) would be organised by Mike and after that Wo Bro Chris Harding of Cambrian lodge, would be taking on the role of society Secretary
This was agreed by all members present
The Captain was still hopeful that many other Masonic golfers within the province might support future events. We have some super trophies to play for and the matches are always enjoyed by all. There is also a possibility of a new competition next year and also a match between the South Wales province (being looked into)
The details of our competitions, as always, would be sent to Lodge secretaries and put onto the Provincial web and Provincial monthly newsletter..
