Centenary 2008

Fund raising started in 2006.

A Centenary Committee was formed to organise events and organise more fund raising events.

First Event was our annual Steak and Kidney dinner which this year we held in the Limpsfield Chart Club (LCGC) House (too many attendees for our own club house).  Guest of honour was Brian Huggett one of our Vice Presidents and also a Vice President of the AGA.  (Brian used to live in Limpsfield and his father George was once the professional of LCGC).  Brian kept us entertained with a question and answer session on this life on the professional circuit.  Several members from the LCGC who remembered Brian attended the dinner.

In May we had a competition at Limpsfield for members and invited guests from LCGC and Tandridge (TGC) both men and ladies sections.  After the prize giving we all enjoyed a Spanish theme buffet meal which was very well received.

In August we held our annual Invitation Day when we had some special prizes to commemorate the event.

Also in August we were very kindly given the courtesy of TGC to hold a competition, when we invited representatives from the Artisan Golfers Association, Surrey Artisan Golfers Association, English Golf Union (EGU), also members from other Artisan Clubs we play matches against during the year.  After the presentations, which included a beautiful engraved plate from the EGU to commemorate our centenary we all sat down to a wonderful meal and many thanks to TGC for their hospitality.

During the Centenary year we also received presentations from our Parent Club both Gentlemen and Ladies sections which are now on display in the Club House.  We also received Centenary pictures from our friends at Walton Heath Artisan GC and Deal Artisan GC.

August was a busy month, we held our own competition for our members which included a one off Centenary Trophy, free food and reduced bar prices!

In November to round off the Centenary year we invited our ladies to join us for an evening meal at the Coach House, Godstone, most enjoyable and a fitting end to our Centenary year.

Thank you to all who helped with the fund raising and those who helped the year go by with not too many hiccups and a big thank you to our captain for the year Spencer Saunders who throughout the year conducted himself in a truly professional manner.
