And what befitting weather for this wonderful golf club it was, glorious sunshine on a warm spring day, with shorts and tee shirts worn by the golfers, making the whole day a memorable experience. An impressive turnout of 60 golfers, including 10 guests made the long journey from North London to Surrey to experience this beautifully manicured golf course, one of the best many members claim to have played in the UK.for children of Cypriot descent who are between the ages of 7 and 14

Captain Steve Chrysostomou has proven to be the sunshine captain, with all 3 of this year’s events having decent weather, sunshine and no rain. After breakfast, Captain Steve thanked the sponsors Takis and Michael, and gave a short talk on details for the day, with the first tee time at 12pm.


Tandridge Park has some exceptional holes with elevated tee boxes offering panoramic views of the golf course and the surrounding area. The fairways, greens, first and second cuts were manicured like carpets. Truly amazing!

Winner of the day was Tom Theodorou with an excellent score of 38 points, beating Josh Toumany and Vange Evangelou by 2 points.
