The Fellowship's Annual Golf Day was held at the Hadley Wood Golf Club 
situated near Barnet on Monday 19th June. Hadley Wood is one of the finest 
courses in the area and was laid out by Dr Alister MacKenzie, the renowned 
architect and designer of Augusta National.

We had 7 Fellows attending on the day and joined the prestigious and long 
standing Motor Trade Golf Society on one of their guest days. This is the 
fifth year we have joined them and without their generous invitation to 
allow the FMI to join them we would struggle to arrange a day worthy of 
attendance. 

The day commenced with scrumptious bacon rolls carved from a joint by the 
head chef and served in the very elegant Clubhouse restaurant. Play 
commenced from a 2 tee start which allowed the group to conclude our 
rounds in good time. We were blessed with excellent weather on the day 
which was sunny throughout with a moderate breeze to help keep everybody 
cool.  The course presented a good challenge to everybody's golfing skills 
and was in spectacular condition. The greens were particularly well 
prepared and required great care and attention to prevent any major 
mishaps.  Following the round there was time to sit in the sunshine 
outside the Clubhouse, overlooking the course and enjoy some well-deserved 
refreshments. It is of course obligatory that the shots that got away are 
discussed at length at this time. We were then treated to a fantastic 3 
course lunch starting with a choice of starters, a choice of carved beef 
or lamb (or both) main course followed by generous helpings of various 
desserts.

The winner of the FMI competition and the Presidents Bowl, retaining the 
crown for the fourth consecutive time with a spectacular 39 points was Bob 
Cadman. Bob's score was the highest of the day and won him the MTGS 
guest prize. Our runner up was Steve Fulford with a respectable 36 points 
and won him the Henley Challenge Cup and the 2nd placed MTGS guest 
prize. The longest drive and nearest the pin prizes were won by Bob Cadman 
and Brian Childs respectively. The prizes were presented by the MTGS 2017 
President Paul Williams.

Following the presentation, Chairman Brian Childs, thanked the MTGS for 
their generosity in allowing the Fellowships participation and wished them 
good success in the future. Special thanks were offered to Golf Manager 
Terry Wills who organised the whole event in spectacular fashion. A short 
explanation about the FMI was made with the suggestion for MTGS members to 
consider joining our Fellowship.

In conclusion, the day was a tremendous success and we look forward to 
joining next year’s event.
