On 2nd August BGS beat North Harbour's score of 579 and Hursley's of 558. Alas, our magnificent 563 wasn't low enough to oust Surrey & Sussex's 537.

Captain v President Challenge

Format

Two 12-person teams compete in fourball betterball Stableford pairs preceded by a mid-morning full English breakfast and followed by dinner and the gradual disclosure of the scores of each pair. The trophy is awarded on aggregate team points.

Team selection

The Captain's team comprises past captains of the Society. The President's team is drawn from this year's committee and event organisers. As the years go by, more and more people become ex-captains, so the President conscripts loyal fixture supporters and the most ex of the ex-captains.

Guest price in 2019 is £54.

The trophy

A beautiful etched-glass trophy on a wooden plinth of a golfer about to strike.
