Cambridge & Oxford 2013 Spring Golf Meeting

A beautiful calm early Spring day at the venerable Hodogaya Country Club greeted the sixteen C&O players on Saturday March 23rd. This time we were graced with a guest – David Jones from the London wine merchant Berry Brothers, as well as the welcome participation of one of our lady members, Carolyn Macdonald.

Everyone was delighted to welcome back to active golfing duties Terry Nakamura, who acquitted himself extremely well on the day.

Four fourballs, two ‘In’, two ‘Out’, eight Oxonians, seven Cantabrians; the stage was set for another close battle for not only the prized individual trophy (defending champion: Yoshi Kawamura) but for the ‘varsity’ match based on the top four scores from either University.

Our guest David Jones, a smooth swinging 3 handicapper from The Berkshire, actually posted the best score on the day, with a fine 75 gross. But the individual honours went to Simon Dalby whose 76 was enough to win the day.

The Varsity match was finally won by Cambridge thus halting a run of Oxford success.

A very enjoyable day was had and we all look forward to the Autumn meeting. Many thanks to Steven Thomas for organizing the day.

Oxford players: Peter Sato, Terry Nakamura, Charles Postles, Yoshi Shimizu, Tomo Imai, Steven Thomas, Yasuzo Takeno, Alex Miller.

Cambridge players: Simon Dalby, Peter Itoh, Jim Weeks, Alastair & Carolyn Macdonald, Yoshi Kawamura, John Sunley.

Guest: David Jones.
