90 guests attended the recent HGU County Dinner event (Fri 20th October) held once again at The Shire London Club on the outskirts of Barnet, North London.
Many of the year's prize winners were re-presented with their trophies on the night, with two of the 'player of the year' honours also handed out.
James Surridge of Verulam won the 1st Team tankard after achieving a winning record in the league matches and a stunning performance in winning the Benka Trophy, awarded for the best individual gross score in the South East Men's Qualifier at Sheringham GC in Norfolk.
Ryan Hodges of Harpenden Common was awarded the John Gill Trophy of the Colt of the Year after being an ever present in the Colts league matches and a solid playing record.
Ben Harman of Letchworth was awarded a memento for his excellent achievement of breaking the course record with a gross 65 (-5) in the afternoon round in the aforementioned South East qualifier at Sheringham.
The toast to the county was made by Alistair Booth, a Board Member for England Golf as well as current President of BB&O and his speech was responded to by our current President Robin Colbourne. Finally the guests were entertained by Graham P Jolley with his mind-reading, magic and mental skills, which provided a refreshing break from all the golf talk!
