    H4H 2nd October 2018 Liphook

    We have had to change the venue of next years Help For Heroes charity golf day, as unfortunately Hankley Common had double booked our date. They are holding a two day Open on the Monday and Tuesday.

    We wanted to keep the same date, as some have already booked accommodation, so a new course had to be sourced. Mike Harris has been in negotiations with local clubs, and has managed to convince Liphook Golf Club to let us play there. It meant the Liphook Ladies giving up their usual Tuesday, for which we are very grateful.

    Liphook (www.liphookgolfclub.com) is a stunning heathland course, ranked 67 in the latest Golf Monthly Top 100 courses. I have personally played the course many times, and has consistently the best greens I have putted on. It will be a fitting place to play our charity day.

    There will be a shotgun start at 10.00, and the cost of bacon rolls and coffee, 18 holes of golf, and a two course carvery will be £55. A donation of £30 will also be payable, so total cost £85.

    There will be a maximum of 80 golfers, and I will set up a new justgiving site to make donations to secure a place. Please do not making any donations to the current 2017 justgiving charity site, which will be closed shortly.

    Apologies for the change in course, but unfortunately it was beyond our control.

    Yes it’s been a hard few weeks of debating trying to keep the same day in the immediate vicinity due to our knowledge of People already booking holiday days and booking accommodation, but Liphook and especially the ladies surrendering their Ladies Day for us is an exceptional gesture.

    With a maximum of 80 were looking for an excellent showing of Forum players to play at this top course.

    Mike Harris has saved the day. I didn't realise he had such an influence on the Liphook ladies.

    We are looking to arrange a forum meet on the Monday as well. Once a course has been confirmed, Glyn (LincolnQuaker) will be taking over with his exceptional organising skills.

    I think he has a influence with all ladies mate. 😂

    This is yet another course I have never played and it looks fantastic.

    Good work to all involved in rescuing a tricky situation.

    The course looks great; "designed as a ‘strategic’ rather than a ‘penal’ golf course" and not too long, should be ideal for classic clubs.

    I'll certainly be up for a Monday game as well.

    Sounds like you Guy.

    I play Liphook at the beginning of October with my society, and it is always in great condition, and the greens are stunning.

    Quite a few of the par 4's don't need driver on. Have you got a spoon in your set ?
