The final shootout, the mighty “F.A.E.S.G.V.A.S.G.B.” (First Annual Eindhovensche Studenten Golf Vereniging All Sports Golf Battle) was the last hurdle for Max to claim his victory for the overall win as club champion for the year 2017-2018. Although Max could not claim the win for the June shootout, our Chairman Aswing Jongsma beat him to it, Max scored enough points during the “F.A.E.S.G.V.A.S.G.B.” and has been crowned club champion for the year 2017-2018.
We hope to see you all next year and beat Max to become the club champion of 2018 – 2019
On behalf of the 16th board, have a great summer and enjoy your free time to practice your golf game
Friday the 8th of June 15 brave pirates ventured out to the Biesbosch to have a laugh, drink and some more drinks. The weather in Eindhoven was terrible but in Drimmelen the sun came out and we even had a swim on the Aakvlaai! After returning in Eindhoven the BBQ was lit and we ended the day with a full stomach. For an impression of the day see the photos below!
On Tuesday the 29th the first ever tournament between GCE and E.S.G.V. was held. On arrival, it was all friendly between the teams and everybody enjoyed a piece of cake and a cup of coffee. But when Andrew announced that it was time to play the atmosphere changed, both teams wanted to win this prestigious tournament. The tournament existed of two times 9 holes, the first nine holes the format best ball was played and the second nine greensome. GCE took a quick lead, leading with 4-2 after the first 9 holes.
Because not all participant were aged below 25 there was a BBQ to strengthen up and talk tactics within the teams, while enjoying a beer and some meat. The students had a productive meeting and did manage to win the first two greensome matches to even the score to 4-4, with still 4 teams in play everything could happen. GCE and E.S.G.V. played the best they could.
Eventually, GCE managed to win one more game, the other 3 were won by E.S.G.V. totalling the score on 5-7. This making E.S.G.V. the winner of the first encounter between GCE and E.S.G.V. Afterwards both teams enjoyed a second BBQ and some more beers and had an amazing evening.
The most memorable shot of the night was a hole in one by Niek Rijkmans on hole 3 using his lob wedge to his advantage! We would like to thank Andrew Scullion for the organisation and hopefully meet GCE again next year during the second inter-club tournament.
The 16th of may we played 9 holes and had a nice dinner at Gendersteyn.
We all had a lot of fun and some of us even lowered their handicap!
For the students who just started golfing it was a great opportunity to see what golf is all about.
After a lot of positive reactions, we would like to organise more of those events in the future.
Hopefully, a lot of you guys will join them as well!

Despite some rain, we had a lot of fun during the second business meetup with HyTEPS!
