Alan Carver would ask anyone interested in playing golf prior to the annual dinner on 11th September to call him on 07881 815184 as soon as possible.
Raymond George Rush, an Old Boy who was at the school between 1947-52, has passed away at the age of 79. He was living with his wife, Paulette Rush in Santa Barbara de Nexe, the Algarve, Portugal.
Alan Carver is arranging an Old Bournemouthians golf event on the afternoon before this year’s Annual Dinner, on 11th September. Alan would like to see some OB new faces and even any recent school-leavers, so come along to join the old hands, and maybe lift the annual OB Golf title and trophy and join those ‘Legends’ of the past!
All OBs can play, even if you are not necessarily coming to the OB Annual Dinner.
Depending on numbers entering we will play in pairs, threes, or fours, so if you know someone who you would like to play with then give me his name.
Alan has arranged for us to play at Highcliffe Castle Golf club as we have done in recent years. This is a shorter course than Parkstone, Meyrick or Queen’s Park. A round here, providing there are no hold ups, is about 3 to 3.5 hours, so we have good time afterwards for a natter and time to get ready for the dinner in Bournemouth. Highcliffe is about a mile from Christchurch. The first tee off is 12 noon, and at 7 minute intervals thereafter.
The green fee is £13 and there is a £3 contribution to prize money. The prize pot will besplit with 50% going to the winner and 25% to each of the winners of the longest drive and nearest the pin on one of the par 3 holes. There are no par 5 holes.
If you are interested, please call Alan on 07881 815184 as soon as possible, to give him the following information:
- your email address
- your full postal address
- the years you were at the school
- you handicap
