Tewkesbury - October 23

Kilgetty Golf Society – Tewkesbury tour 2023


Kilgetty Golf Society’s autumn golf trip saw the Society visitingTewkesbury for a two-day trip, playing both Tewkesbury Park Golf Club and Puckrup Hall Golf Club. Eighteen Society members made the trip this year, organised by Rob Hartle’ Poole and Nigel ‘Scissors’ Taylor. the Society welcomed three new members on this trip: Nigel ‘Starvin Jack’ Evans, Ian ‘Blues Brother’ Taylor and Roland ‘Gee-Gee’ Connolly. The Society is most welcoming and looks forward to new players joining in on day and weekend trips. Handicaps not a problem, the Society boasts handicaps at all levels. Matches are played as individuals as well as in teams.
winning team on day 1 was John ‘Hamster’ Hammond and Idwal ‘Diddy-Iddy’ David, with the top three individual players being 1st Wayne ‘Chopsy’ Connett, 2nd Hamster and 3rd  Diddy-Iddy. John 'Merlot' Viner did the double of winning both the Longest Drive and Nearest the Pin. Proud winner of the Wooden Spoon was Rob ‘The Builder’ Nixon.
Day two started with one of the best cooked breakfasts enjoyed on any Society trip. The Society then made its way to Puckrup Hall GolfClub. This was a great course to play, and provided a few challenges on the day. The weather held up, despite a not so good forecast, with only the last players out experiencing the incoming rain. Day 2’s winning duo was newcomer Starvin Jack and Chopsy. The top three for the day were Paul‘Goodbye’ Marsden, followed by Chopsy and then Meurig ‘Careful’ Evans. Alan ‘Jeffers’ Jeffrey was Nearest the Pin and Roger ‘Analyst’ Handcock hit the Longest Drive. The coveted spoon was taken home by the Blues Brother.
Once all the prizes for day 2’s play had been dished out, the grand raffle took place, everyone leaving with a prize, and all agreeing (in the words of Mr Kipling) it had been an exceedingly good trip! 
The Society has been going for some 21 years, and new players are always most welcome, of any ability. If you would be interested in coming to play at one of the KGS events, please contact Steve Jones at
