2012 Autumn Golf at Fuji OGM Ichihara GC

The 2012 C&O Autumn Golf Outing was held on October 20th; it was a beautiful, sunny autumn day - most welcome to all golfers after the abnormally hot summer endured this year.

The course was Fuji OGM Ichihara GC; that morning, the traffic on Aqua Line was not so bad, resulting in the fact that everybody arrived without any frustrations from a long drive.

A total of eight people joined: four each from Oxford and Cambridge. While the Oxford players tried their best, on this occasion Cambridge team won the University Match by a slim margin of just 4 strokes (331-327). The historic record now stands at Oxford 23 vs. Cambridge 18.

In the individual competition, Yoshihiko Kawamura won the C&O Trophy for the first time with a solid score of 97 gross and 77 net.

The new Champion said that even though he was enjoying a high handicap, he did not expect to win at the tournament at all, because his driver and fairway woods had not been stable for the past months. However, he was very much helped by an excellent caddy who found his ball even in the bushes and gave effective instructions on the greens. In addition, his game benefited from the enjoyable company and friendly encouragement of his playing partners, Charles Postles, Steven Thomas and Jim Weeks.

On such a wonderful Kanto autumn day, all participants enjoyed the tournament, and promoted our friendship. We promised to get together for the next C&O Spring Golf Outing at Hodogaya CC, scheduled for March 23rd 2013.
