The first major Army Golf Championship of 2018 took place at Frilford Heath Golf Club, near Abingdon, Mon 21 to Wed 23 May 18. The event was very kindly sponsored by Qioptiq.

The competition attracted a near maximum (72) field of 70 golfers, who played four rounds of golf on Tuesday & Wednesday preceded by a practice round on the Monday afternoon. The weather was most kind and much enjoyment was had by all. The results are as follows (handicaps in {}):

Champion – Cpl Churchill RE {+2} on 288.
This was his 7th victory in the event, only one short of the current record of eight. His score was level par (72 x 4 – 288) for the four rounds, which considering he had an 80 in the first round, was hugely impressive.
Runner Up – Gdsm Slater Coldm Gds {+1} on 295.
Handicap Champion – LCpl Farrimond RE {11} on 285 (nett score).
36 Hole Stableford Champion – Sgt Rai M R Signals {8} on 71 pts.
