The 2023 Pocklingtonian Golf Day held on Friday 9 June 2023 at The Oaks, marked the tenth running of the event and with the weather gods in full summer mode, it promised to be a blistering day in more ways than one for the eight teams of golfers playing for the President’s Cup.

As well as some of the regulars, there were several new players and teams taking part this year including: The Girls, an all-female team captained by former parent Janette Minns, Facets Commercial Consulting led by Guy Littlejohn (00-07), and The Lowther headed up by Tom Binns (07-18).

As always, the greens and fairways were in excellent condition, further enhanced by the weather, as players enjoyed their rounds in glorious sunshine. In addition to the team competition, individual players had the opportunity to try their luck against the Club Champion, Harry Lee, in the ‘Beat the Champ’ competition on the 7th hole as well as having a go at Nearest the pin, Nearest the pin in two and the Longest drive as they made their way around the course.

After the rounds, the teams gathered for supper and the prize presentations hosted by OP President, Joan Gough (75-77). This year, there was a special prize for most co-ordinated team which was presented to The Girls with their navy blue and pink themed golfing outfits.

In the team competition, although there was a tie on 83 for second place with The Glimmering Golfers edging it on countback over last year’s winners, Warrendale Farm, the overall winners were Facets Commercial Consulting with a runaway score of 90 on their debut. Congratulations!

Full results including the winners of the individual prizes are summarised below.
