West Hill - 14th May 2024

One hundred and eighty enthusiastic golfers took on the exquisite West Hill Golf Club. For many, it was their first experience at this historic venue, adding an extra layer of excitement and challenge to the event.

West Hill Golf Club is the youngest of the trinity of “Ws” located in this beautiful corner of Surrey, with Woking and Worplesdon being the other two. Cuthbert Butchart, a Scottish professional from Carnoustie, laid out the course in 1910 on the instruction of the founder, Mrs. Marguerite Lubbock, a keen golfer. At the time, ladies were not allowed to become members at other local Surrey clubs, so she decided to form one of her own. Butchart went on to become West Hill's first club professional and also made a name for himself as a fine, forward-thinking clubmaker. His drivers were revolutionary, superbly balanced, and fitted with innovative lead weights.

As anticipation mounted, the moment arrived for the unveiling of the much-awaited prizes:
