College Staff golfers retain trophy despite far from seasonal conditions

Far from ideal weather for our annual OS vs College Staff (past & present) golf tournament at Bishop’s Stortford Golf Club but spirits remained high across the teams.

A fabulous turnout and a close fought competition saw the College Staff, Captained by Stephen Sabey, retain the winning team trophy. A double victory for the College Staff with Gary Law being crowned Best Golfer, closely followed via countback by OS Peter Smith (AH, 64-68) as runner up Best Golfer.

The windy and rainy conditions kept overall scores low but a fabulous opportunity for OS and College Staff to socialise in the spirit of healthy golfing competition.

Huge thanks to all the hardy players with special mention to both Captains, OS James Greenall (GH,AH, 65-74) & Stephen Sabey (Staff, 13-) for all their hard work in making the day such a huge success – hoping for sunshine rather than showers next year!

Any OS golfers interested to finding out more information about the OSGS should reach out to James Greenall (GH, AH, 65-74)
