Cobham Sporting Gun Club
Cobham Sporting Gun Club was founded in 1984 by a small group of friends who enjoyed meeting regularly for a local, friendly, fun shoot near Ripley, Surrey.
Today the club has grown, with a wider membership including ladies and colts coming from as far as South London, Hampshire and West Sussex, as well as across Surrey.
The club’s ground has developed into a varied and challenging shoot ............... a result of the ingenuity and dedication of members over the years. Today you will see various stands named after members, as well as general improvements to access around the ground.
The club honours previous members who have contributed above and beyond, with a number of trophy shoots and annual awards dedicated in their name;
Tony Cattle Award
Tony was a valuable CSG member, acting as safety officer, referee, instructor and committee member. He was especially welcoming to new members and would always provide encouragement and assistance to novice shots.
In Tony’s memory The Tony Cattle Award is presented to the member whose average score/handicap is the most improved over the club year.
Roger Woollen Trophy
This was created in 2006 in respect and remembrance of Roger, who acted as treasurer, gave a lot to the club and died suddenly.
It is awarded to the high gun member of the third Sunday in September each year, the anniversary of the last shoot that Roger attended.
John Maiklem Trophy
John Maiklem was the farmer who owned the land at Kiln Lane over which the Club shoot. John was a keen shot himself and always took an active interest in the development of the Club. Without his encouragement and the use of his land the Club may never have come into existence. Sadly John died in 2007 after a long illness.
In his memory the John Maiklem Trophy is awarded to the member who breaks the highest number of clays over the Club year. So attendance is a factor as well as actual scores. The running total throughout the year for all members can be seen in the column headed "Total" of the score sheet.
Ron Hyde Trophy
Ron was a founder member of the club and was a major supporter in the day to day running of the club.
Sadly, Ron died on New Years Eve 2015.
At the April 2016 AGM it was agreed that this new trophy would be introduced in remembrance/recognition of Ron.
It would be awarded to the winner of the Christmas (Handicapped) Shoot.
