Season Launch
East Kent Masonic Golf
Littlestone Warren

New Captain Daren Horne launched the 2022 golfing season at Littlestone Warren Golf course on Thursday 28th April.

Although taking over the captaincy in the narrow defeat against Met GL, this was the first opportunity for the players to get together for the new season.

A total of 34 Players and guests watched as the 2021 Captain Derek Reed  presented a unique EKMGA polo shirt to Darren, which he insisted he wears for the upcoming season.

Despite some barracking about the out of bounds on the left, Daren took to the tee and sent his drive into the middle of the fairway to a rapturous applause. Next to the Tee was the new vice-captain, Leon Zacharow who was less fortunate (or less talented) and sent his hard left into the middle of the driving range.

The competition was hard fought with Paul Routley holding the clubhouse lead with 42 points until virtually the last group. The final results were:

Gary Williamson, (Ashford Lodge 8954) 43 points
Paul Routley, (Maeides Stana Lodge 7868) 42 points
Keith Hodgeson, (Weald of Kent lodge 1854) 40 Points
