Hankley Common - 15th May 2024

Two hundred enthusiastic golfers descended on the historic Hankley Common Golf Club for a day filled with excitement and challenge. For many, it was their first experience at this renowned venue, which added an extra layer of anticipation to the event.

Hankley Common Golf Club is situated on the North Downs, within a preservation area known as a 'Site of Special Scientific Interest,' home to oak, rowan, and the woodlark. In many ways, Hankley is reminiscent of Walton Heath, which is high praise indeed; the common at Tilford has the same ferocious heather and the same wide-open, windswept appearance as that of the heath at Walton on the Hill. If there was ever a place where seaside links golf meets inland heathery golf, it’s here at Hankley Common.

As the day progressed, the moment everyone was waiting for arrived—the unveiling of the much-anticipated prizes:
