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.
The Old Bournemouthians’ Annual Dinner will this year be held at Bournemouth’ Royal Bath Hotel on Friday 20th September. To attend, please complete this form.
There are two planned golf days which are open to all golfers of all age ranges – beginners or experienced players.
- Thursday 24 May 2012 Old Tauntonians and Old Bournemouthians Golf Day at Dibden Golf course (between Southampton and Fawley)
This annual event is a Stableford with full handicap allowance and is a friendly meet- up with the two schools but in addition to the individual competition for the Pomeroys Trophy for the overall winner there is also a separate trophy for the Old Bournemouthian Seniors (over 60’s) competition. This golf event is not just for seniors but open to all ex Bournemouth School folks. Traditionally we have a sit down meal after play and there are normally about 30 players. The green fee is £20 and the meal £14. Buggies can be hired but let us know soon if you require one as there are a limited number available.
