Wadham’s alumni golfing team welcomed three new members for the 2018 intercollegiate golf competition.

  • Wadham Golfers

    Wadham golfers Hywel Davies, Richard Chapman, Haydn Gott, Peter Lennon, Jane Powell, Roger Devlin, Douglas French, John Ford.

Peter Lennon, Douglas French and Nigel Cook joined the Wadham team at Frilford Heath Golf Club on Friday 13 April 2018, winning third place in the competition.

“After the rather rainy build up, the day was dry but playing conditions depended on whether you had the good fortune to be drawn to play on the Red Course (well drained) or the Blue Course (rather boggy)”, said Wadham Alumni Golf Society (WAGS) member Richard Chapman (Mathematics, 1968).
 
Congratulations to Haydn Gott who played the harder Blue Course but still managed the team's top score of 36 points. 

“When the best six scores from Wadham’s ten players were counted we found ourselves in a very creditable third place behind Christchurch and University College, the latter winning by just one point”, added Richard. 

Thanks to the whole team for another excellent performance and we look forward to doing battle again next year. 

All Wadham golfers are invited to the Whitby Cup on Friday 21st September – venue TBA.
