GOLF THE As­so­ci­a­tion of Jewish Golf Clubs & So­ci­eties opened their 2017 pro­gramme with a new ini­tia­tive when an in­au­gu­ral Open event was held at Harts­bourne Coun­try Club on Sun­day.

The event was a fur­ther recog­ni­tion of the as­so­ci­a­tion’s am­bi­tion to seek to at­tract Jewish golfers who cur­rently play out­side the do­main of the recog­nised pre­dom­i­nately Jewish clubs who af­fil­i­ate to the As­so­ci­a­tion.

The As­so­ci­a­tion was en­cour­aged to wel­come 25 play­ers to com­pete in a Sta­ple­ford com­pe­ti­tion, played in glo­ri­ous sun­shine. The course was pre­sented in great con­di­tion and the over­all win­ner was An­drew Co­hen, with his wife Wendy, vic­to­ri­ous in the ladies.

An AJGCS spokesman said: “We are con­fi­dent that the suc­cess of the event can be used as the start of the de­vel­op­ment of a UK Jewish Golf so­ci­ety which may ul­ti­mately com­pete along­side the es­tab­lished af­fil­i­ates in the As­so­ci­a­tion’s com­pe­ti­tions.”

There will be a fur­ther event in Lon­don this au­tumn with aim of or­gan­is­ing an out of Lon­don tour­na­ment in 2018.
