Peripatos

Trying to find a unique name which had a level of elegance and mystery about it proved an interesting exercise. There was a Greek confusion and a rather blunt Anglo Saxon version before settling on Peripatos.

Are you someone who likes to think on your feet? If so, you've got something in common with the followers of the ancient Greek philosopher Aristotle. Not only a thinker and teacher, Aristotle was also a walker, and his students were required to walk along beside him as he lectured while pacing to and fro.

Thus it was that the Greek word peripatētikos (from peripatein, meaning "to walk up and down") came to be associated with Aristotle and his followers. By the way, the covered walk in the Lyceum where Aristotle taught was known as the "peripatos" (which can either refer to the act of walking or a place for walking).

The name just about fits its purpose in that the society goes from course to course to play, play involves plenty of walking and while we are playing we discuss many topics in a most learned way.

Mortuus Ovium

Dead Sheep, occassionally heard on the green when your playing partner grossly over or under hits a putt. Meaning 'still ewe' and that it is still that player to play.

It has been adopted as our motto, to remind us all to be bold, positive and if it doesn't quite work have fun!
