Old Breconians Retain The Cup

On Friday 6th September the Old Breconian Golf Society played their annual fixture against the Old Llandoverian team at Cradoc Golf Club.

In contrast to the forecast, the day was pleasantly bright and sunny, interrupted by only one sharp shower. Bacon rolls and coffee duly consumed, battle commenced in very good humour, embraced by the course in good condition, enhanced by maturing trees and the breath-taking views at every turn. There was an incident causing some concern, when Old Llandoverian, Dr Tim Jenkins dislocated his replacement hip getting out of his buggy on the 16th fairway, involving the arrival of both ambulance and chopper onto the course before he could be evacuated to Neville Hall hospital – mercifully Tim is now recovering and we wish him well.

The results were :-

  • Gareth A R Davies (SHR, 87-94) & Des Lally (SHR, 86-93) beat David Evans & Donald Evans
  • J E Charles Raw-Rees (ORC, 62-69) & Jonathan Spencer (SHR, 72-77) halved the match with Chris Davies & Tim Williams
  • Steve Maggs (SHB, 82-84) & Peter T Knill (SHB, 75-80) beat Tim Jenkins & David Lee
  • Steve P Falck (ORC, 85-90) and Alan Hughes (Staff, 72-83) beat Jack Hansen & Anthony James
  • J Gwyn Jones (SHR, 86-93) & Huw Watkins (ORC, 62-69) beat Rowland Rees-Evans & Lloyd Rogers
  • Peter J Owen* (SHB, 53-58) lost to Luke Heap & Chris O’Meara

*should have been Mike Muir – but off games with groin injury incurred rock jumping!


Brecon retained The Cup by 4.5 to 1.5.

The running total to date Brecon 18: Llandovery 9 with three halves. We were delighted to welcome our special guests Head of Christ College Brecon, Mrs Emma Taylor, and Llandovery Warden, Guy Ayling. We were also joined by OBA Secretary, Huw Richards, and Old Llandoverian’s Hopkin Joseph. A very enjoyable dinner ensued with many thanks to the caterers for looking after us so professionally and kindly, after which the Old Llandoverian Chairman, Rhys Jones, thanked OBGS for organising the day; it was agreed that they will arrange the 2014 fixture.
