Welcome to the website of the Royal Navy Golfing Society (RNGS). The site provides information to members and potential members about the Society and its activities, past, current and planned.
At the instigation of Andy Towens, an RNGS member, an RNGS team was invited to Burnham and Berrow for a weekend of golf and a ‘black tie dinner’ on the 24th and 25th of July. The course, near Weston Super-mare, is one of the premier links courses in the south of England. Escaping the thunder storms and floods which battered the southeast, the RNGS team acquitted itself well against a home team including a number of past club captains, coming home 51/2 – 6 1/2 losers, albeit winning the Sunday morning matches when hangovers from the previous evening might have influenced play. Players on both teams described the meeting as a great success, and both are keen to find ways of both reciprocating and repeating the match in the years ahead.⇒
35 members took part in the Summer Meeting at Tidworth in lovely weather in an otherwise soggy week, and on the fastest greens most have experienced this year. Congratulations to Bryan Burns, winner of the a.m. Stableford and the Daniels Cup, to runner-up Terry Pearce and to Richard Seymour and Ralph Wykes-Sneyd, winners of the p.m. Foursomes.⇒
