Buccaneers’ Golfing Society spring meeting returns to Felixstowe Ferry

11 golfing Buccs enjoy rounds at Felixstowe Ferry and Woodbridge GCs

Founded by the late Reverend Frank Cocks and Howard Spencer, The Golfing Society returned to its spiritual home at the links of Felixstowe Ferry GC on Thursday 27th April. Two teams – The Bazballs and The Boycotts – battled it out in dry but windy conditions where experience (and age) triumphed over (relative) youth. It certainly wasn’t a day to ‘grip and rip’.

The Boycotts made up of Del Fulcher, Chunky Goulstone, Simon Woolfries, David Close, Chris Wykes and Mike Shilling beat the Bazballs of Doc Holliday, Johnny Philips, James Stringer, Phil Butler and Paul Thompson. Nearest the pin was Paul Thompson and longest drive was James Stringer.

After an overnight stay in historic Woodbridge and an interesting dinner, day two was played at Woodbridge GC’s Heath course. In warm but changeable conditions where nightingales on the course were the most numerous of birdies, an individual stableford competition was won by Jonny P who also won the nearest the pin. James S won longest drive again.

The Golfing Society will be meeting for a round in October and is planning another two day trip to Dorset in 2024. If you would like to be added to the Golfing Society mailing list please contact James Stringer on stringer.redhill@gmail.com.
