On the eve of the eve of the Club Championships and a potential history making 4 in a row it's worth taking a look at how far we've come as a club.

In 2006, the year the club founded, the KMGC took part in our first Club Championships - in Dorridge - with the line-up of Sean Homer, Marion Homer, Andy Booth and Philip Peacock.

2007 saw the CC's take place at the sadly now departed Clambers where we saw our first 2 team entry (accounting for unbelievably 50% of the entries alongside Hastings and Tunbridge aka the Exalls). Alongside myself, Marion and Andy we saw 5 new caps awarded with Rich Hopkins, Bill Bullin, Sally Booth, Jake Booth and Jane Booth joining the growing ranks of club players.

2008 saw the Club Championship move to Stratford and two more caps awarded with Dave Forrest and Sue Forrest lining up with Marion and myself.

2009 took us to the South West and the Sandbanks course where another two new caps were awarded - to none other than our VC Scott Lancley and Rocky Bullin (along with the debut of our Black KMGC classic top at a CC).

Then we come to the 2010 event, held at the now departed Green course where the KMGC once again had 2 teams competing and a whopping 5 new KMGC CC debuts - Michael Smith, Marc Chapman, Andy Exall, Adam Kelly and Tony Kelly. And the KMGC took our first title in fine style (with the debut as well of the Orange KMGC top!).

2011 saw us back at Dorridge, a fitting venue to take our second title as it saw the birth of the KMGC club team - and for the first time, there we no new players taking part, but 2 settled and quality teams, identical line-ups to the 2010 championship

2012 saw us go to Basingstoke with Will Donnelly, Dave Donnelly, Phil Exall and Alex (as he was) Pragnell making their debuts as we broke more records with 3 teams taking part and taking our third title on the bounce.

Which brings us to 2013 and our return to Basingstoke this weekend.

Five more players will be getting their team debuts - step forward Mark Wood, Chris Wood, Martin Greenhead, Brian Smith and Matty Exall - and the KMGC are going in force with 4 teams, pushing for the historic 4th title in a row.

28 players.

3 titles.

1 incredible club!

Here's to a successful and enjoyable weekend.

Well done Team Kent, a great display from all four teams and a great, well fought final between two of them. It was an honour to play with undoubtedly the UK's three finest players & I'm especially pleased for Sean & Marion, Kent's historic fourth win in a row is down to their enthusiasm, dedication & hard work that's taken the KMGC from small roots to the massive un moveable oak that it is now. Matty really enjoyed himself & thanks to Marion, Brian & Adrian for playing with him. The KMGC has recruited many more players recently, all of which are great additions to the club & the skill levels throughout are rising steadily, no other club comes remotely close so I think the domination will be hard to break for some while yet. Four players never won today, 16 did - Team Kent, the Mighty KMGC! VTK indeed.

Thanks to Sean and Marion for yet another fabulous mini golfing weekend, congratulations to everyone in Kent.

Special thanks to my sporting opponents and of course my fellow Tornados:- Tiger, Martin and Chris.

We were disappointed to narrowly lose our Q/F in sudden death to Midlands 1, but proud of our efforts to rally round and defeat both Cambridge and Planet Hastings to finish 5th.

Already thinking of next year......certainly one of the most enjoyable events on the calendar.

Now that I have fully thawed out I thought I'd thank my fellow Hellcats - Brian, Adrian and Matty, for a great weekend's playing in great spirit. There were no expectations of us for the weekend, and I am so proud that we automatically qualified!
We didn't let the Hurricanes walk over us, and they went on to take silver! I think we all played well and know what we need to do next year to finish higher up the table. Our secret weapon - The Hurricane saved the team on more than one occasion and I would be honoured to lead The Hellcats out again next year.
A massive congrats to the Spitfires, you were unbeatable, but as a club we ROCK!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Tornadoes...be afraid. Be very afraid, we're coming to get you!!

That's the way it should be. I might not need to come back given the strength and depth of players, although there are clearly 5 proven stars at the head of things right now.

He's back & bang on form, no one does it like HIOK! Great report Michael, nice to see my jokes again too, some (including the Natural) may disagree.
Basingstoke last year was a great day, this year even better, it's such a good place for that competition & FB's genius in working out the format made it a fine day & historic for the KMGC!
cheers cheers cheers 
P.s. bit more warmth next year would be agreeable MR Weatherman! sunny

Excellent report - brings it all flooding back (well it was only 3 days ago), still can't believe how close the Tornados got to the hole in the sudden death against Midlands 1, I am still gutted!

Roll on the 2014 season
