2019 Season Wrap

20190428_112203

2019 completed our tenth year as the (second!) best Tour on the Planet. As dangerous climate change started to become a reality, the boys responded in the only way we could – with HOT GOLF. I don’t mean to be flippant. With things looking so scary, its important to have room for friendship and adventure and fun, in amongst the world’s problems. And by the way, the tin can that flew us to King Island can’t have emitted much carbon!

2019 B’n’D – NORFIK!

AAAA Norfik warm ups.jpg

As Defending Champ, Ian had the honour of choosing the course this year, and the timing. He duly sent us to New Norfik in late June. It would be cold. Who would bring the HOT GOLF to burn off the Derwent Valley winter chill?

2018 B’n’D – The Herminator Strikes!

IMG_4684 -+ Cravo Copy

The finest golfers on the Planet, getting ready to tame Huonville GC. (LtoR) Cravo (insert), Leroy, Felix, Ian, Gaz, Darvy and Basil.

It was the highest performance B’n’D ever – in fact six of the seven Gents shot a high enough stableford score to have won previous editions. Ian and Leroy both shot their best ever rounds off the stick, and Bas was amazing as always. But no one could match the power and precision of the Herminator and his B’n’D record 41 points. Read on for how it happened.

GWT Winning Margins – end of 2017

At the Gentlepersons’ World Tour, every Gent strives to bag Major trophies. Whilst we all love nailbiting finishes, let’s be honest, who doesn’t want to have the comfort of an easy 28 17 shot Bougle win like Basil had in 2012/13? 

Who creams the opposition when they triumph? Who just scrapes over the line? Read on to find out.

2012 Bash’n’Dash – Basil, the Barny Master

The Gentlemen: Handicaps: Felix (+20?), Leroy (+20?), Cravo (+18), Basil (+10)

The first ever Bash’n’Dash was played over 18 holes at Barnbougle in the Winter of 2012. The Committee initially considered 18 holes + a number of novelty holes (opposite handed, blindfolded, kick and a throw etc) but ruled that out as too whimsical.

Bridport turned it on with a cracker of a day, but who would bring the golf fireworks?

The Rival World Tour

gwt2pgatour

Gentlemen,

It has recently been drawn to the Committee’s attention that there is a rival World Golf Tour operating in parallel to our very own! I know this is shocking news, but rest assured that the Committee of the Southern Gentlemen’s Social Golfing Club of Sandfly, Kingston, Dodges Ferry, Brighton, et al is hard at work on the matter.

Verily, gaze thine eyes upon theire ridiculous hallmark! Where is the Top Hat, for starters.
