November County Card Trophy

The November CCT was held at Wells Golf Course on Thurs 23 Nov. After a night of very heavy rain 14 seniors (plus Ned’s minder - Bob from Cornwall) assembled for the usual pre-match warm up preparations (Bacon Rolls and coffee). Ned led off the teams with a well struck drive out of bounds. This did not matter much because due to the muddy conditions it was almost impossible to find your ball even if it landed on the fairway and a great deal of effort was spent by most team members searching for their elusive balls. This feature of the days play was clearly reflected in the scores except for the in-form Ian Tinsley who maintained his current run of success  with a magnificent 34 points - 5 points clear of nearest rivals Peter Gibson and Paul Fletcher.  The Team Prize was won by Team 1 - Ian, Richard Robinson and Ned. This was a popular choice of CCT venue but the stiff cold breeze and the course conditions proved to be a difficult challenge for this visit. Big thank-you to Peter for organising the event and congratulations to Ian and the winning team. See below for details of  December Mini-CCT 9 Hole Christmas Special

Thursday Roll-Up

7 December

The number of participants in this event was much reduced due to very inclement weather, and the demands of various pre-Christmas commitments. Five stalwart seniors decided to brave the elements and set out on the shortened course. Only two managed to make it all the way round with Stuart Beardsley coming out on top well ahead of the rest of the field. Here’s hoping for much better conditions next Tuesday!



2017 Tiger Trophy

The fourth round took place on a very icy morning with frozen greens and crispy fairways. Once again, our captain led the way, only being narrowly beaten to first place by Grahame Knight on countback.


One of the highlights of the day was our Doug who, having played his ball onto the icy pond on the fifth was tempted to play off the ice but common sense prevailed and he took a drop.
