EWGS Tour July 2018 Ryder Cup

Our annual Ryder Cup was held at Kibworth Golf Club.

26 members took part in the event on a well maintained challenging course, overnight rain had taken some of the sting out of the fairways and made the greens receptive.

Once again, we were blessed with excellent weather for golf.

On the day Bob Law led and outstanding USA team to a 7 to 5 victory over the EU.

EWGS Tour July 2016 Ryder Cup

The July leg of the tour was held at Kilworth Springs Golf Club that was home to our version of the Ryder Cup. In view of the Brexit vote we decided to take a step back in time to the days when Great Britain and Northern Ireland took on the USA with no help from the Johnny Foreigners from across the English Channel.

A full complement of 36 members bravely turned up despite a less than cheerful weather forecast. However, the forecast turned out to be true and it turned out to be a severe test of waterproofs as well as golfing ability.

Quite remarkably the course coped with the weather very well, with the greens and fairways running true, but the rough was a different matter.

The result was a stunning victory to Jeff Hing’s Great Britain and Northern Ireland team the winning margin being 10.5  to 7.5 .


Jeff and Tony still friends after the match
