2010 Spring Golf Outing to Hodogaya Golf Club

On Saturday March 27th, eighteen golfers gathered at the venerable Hodogaya CC for the C+O Spring Golf Meeting. We were greeted by a steady breeze and cool temperatures, but Hodogaya was in splendid condition as always.

As well as many of our regular stalwart members, it was good to see some new talent joining the C+O golf group in the form of Tony Jackson and Charles Postles. We were also very pleased to welcome three guest players.

The afternoon proved no easier and after battling round 18 holes, the traditional "ofuro" enjoyed at the end of play was all the more soothing to some tired muscles and weary golfers.

When all the results were in, it proved that experience and local knowledge had won the day, with Hodogaya member Peter Itoh taking home the C+O Trophy for the first time, with a score of 78 and after a countback with Steven Thomas. New man Charles Postles was in third spot and previous Champion Yasuzo Takeno placed fourth.

In the Varsity match, Oxford extended their historical lead to 21-15 with a significant 11 stroke victory.
