September 2014 marks the 75th Anniversary of Bournemouth School occupying the East Way site. In the intervening years much has changed, but the pressure on the school’s accommodation and funding has remained. The school is now launching a 75th Anniversary Appeal with the intention of raising £75,000 by next September to refurbish the Lecture Theatre. Any donations would be gratefully received (cheques should please be made payable to ‘Bournemouth School Fund’) and sent to the school address.
Are you ready for it? Please contact me soon if you are going to enter. Besides our regular “hackers” and semi-pro players, we would like to see some new Old Bournemouthians, especially some younger faces. So come along to join us and maybe lift the annual OB Golf title and trophy. All OB’s can play even if you are not necessarily going to the Dinner.
Depending on numbers entering and start times available from the course then we will either play Queens Park, which can take 4 or more hours or the Highcliffe Castle course (near Christchurch) which can take up to 3 hours. We try to have the first tee off time around 12.30pm and at at seven minutes intervals thereafter.
The entry cost is around £25, which is the green fee and prize money
for winner and runner up.
If you would like to play, then please send your email address, phone number, and postal address, along with details of your handicap (if you have one) and the years that you were at the school, to Alan Carver by email.
