The Halford Hewitt Centenary Dinner and draw for the 2024 tournament took place in the Great Room of the Grosvenor House Hotel in London on 10th January.  7 members of the OEGS were present making up a small but significant part of the 700 or so total attendance.

The draw sees us take on Haileybury in the first round at 9.30am on Thursday, 11th April at Royal Cinque Ports GC, Deal.

Many thanks to those who attended the dinner and all the best to our team in April under the captaincy of Adrian Sharpin.  We have a practice day at Royal St George’s on Sunday, 10th March.  Anyone wanting to be considered for selection contact either Adrian or Chris Walker.

The Halford Hewitt has a very good claim to be the largest amateur golf tournament in the world.  It takes place every spring at Royal St.George’s, Royal Cinque Ports and Prince’s Golf Courses.  64 teams, each of 10 players take part and Eastbourne College has entered every year since 1932.  We have never come anywhere close to winning the tournament but that has not prevented us from having great fun trying to do so.
