For the 2nd year on the trot we came away with a very amicable half for this very friendly fixture. After some friendly banter about shots to be given we also decided to make it a Greensomes format as it was such a gorgeous day at Cotswold Edge and we wanted to make the most of the splendid views and the course which was in good condition.  

Corrinne and Emma went out first, with Corrinne being the home player and hopefully showing us the way. Unfortunately, they had a very closely fought match losing out narrowly on the 17th 

Su and Pam and Paula and Louise took no prisoners and decided a good early finish and back to the bar for some well-earned soft drinks to cool off in the heat was the order of the day. Both matches finishing well up 6&5 and 5&4. 

Newcomer Annie Griffin and myself were lulled into a false sense of security, being up for most of the way but then losing out to back to back birdies late on and finally losing on the 17th 

All in all, a very good match played in a good friendly spirit and finished off with an excellent tea of sandwiches and home-made cake. Thank you to Cotswold Edge GC for being such good hosts. We look forward to the match again next year!! 

 

2. Stinchcombe - competition and lunch 

The annual get-together for a one day foursomes event for all those interested, regardless of handicap, to be held on Wednesday 26th July at Stinchcombe Golf Club. Playing for the Armada Salvers. A great opportunity to reminisce and catch up with old friends!

Format - foursomes stableford (high/low combination) with start times from 9.30 a.m. This will be followed by lunch and prizes.

The total cost of the day will be approx. £32 to include golf, lunch and dessert, coffee and prizes

3. South West County Three Day Event - Parkstone Golf Club, Dorset on October 2nd, 3rd and 4th.

Report: Having arrived at Parkstone in Dorset yesterday (1/10/17) for a practice round in the heavy misty drizzle we opted for a walk round rather than get the clubs wet!  

Day one started in glorious sunshine and we had a convincing 3-0 win in the morning against Devon. A quick turnaround at lunchtime and we were back out against Wiltshire for the afternoon foursomes. Pam Tozer and Frances Lindley were let off for good behaviour having had a good win in the morning.  

Caroline Shepherd and Corrinne Durber notched up their 2nd win of the day. Ann Manley and Jan Pickersgill won 4&3 and myself and Louise Church came back from 2 down to win on the last. A great first day result and just as the rain came in! 

Day two was always going to be a tough day as we took on both Cornwall and Dorset who, as we did, both had 2 wins on day 1. We started out in glorious sunshine against Cornwall with Jan and leading the way and gaining the first point. Pam and Frances lost out to their strongest pair, but Ann and Louise came up trumps winning on the 17th having been dormie 5 up as the Cornwall pair put up an amazing fight back down the back strait.
After a super quick turnaround, we were back out again against Dorset. Corrinne and Caroline were first out after having had the morning off to sort out final dinner options and buy some much needed sticks of rock! Unfortunately, they lost out, but Jan and Ann came up trumps in the last match. Louise and I were dormie 2 up but finally halved the match as Dorset captain Val Ford's local knowledge clawed back those final holes with a couple of good up and downs. 

Day three - the final showdown. Another glorious day as Dorset set off first against Cornwall in a match we hoped the latter would prevail in! Unfortunately, it was not to be, as Dorset pulled off a 3-0 win and so, despite our spirited performance winning 2-1 against Somerset, we lost on count back on games having tied overall in matches. So 2nd place again for the 2nd year on the trot.  

Next year we are hosting so let's hope we can get revenge on home turf. We'll have a tough act to follow as we had fantastic hosts at Parkstone Golf Club and the course was stunning.  

Thank you to my team of Corrinne Durber, Caroline Shepherd, Frances Lindley, Pam Tozer, Jan Pickersgill, Ann Manley and Louise Church. They were all brilliant and gave their all, it was a pleasure to be their Captain.

   

 

 

 

Kind regards
