County Card Trophy Match

31 May - Bulbury Woods

The May CCT took place at Bulbury Woods on Thursday 31 May on a rather damp day with persistent rain that stayed around until the 15 or 16 hole. This, and the tricky course proved to be quite a challenge and this was clearly reflected in the scores on the day. Even our trainee senior only managed 18 points (can’t mention names - it would not be PC…….. or maybe it was).   The winner of the CCT was George Taylor with 31 and in second place the event organiser Grahame Knight with 29 points.


June CCT  Revised Arrangements

The  venue for the June CCT has been revised and will now take place on Thursday 28 June at Ferndown Forest Golf Club. Please arrive by 9:40 for the first tee  at 10:22 am. The cost is £10 plus prizes.   Due to a booking issue at Ferndown there are only 8 places available.  The Entry Sheet is on the Notice Board so please add your name by 22 June if you wish to play in this event.

After a weekend of glorious sunshine, Tuesday 5 June reverted to a cold, grey and windy morning that the team hoped was not  foretelling the events of the day.  Wincanton were a man short from the start and lost another due to injury almost immediately. None the less, they soldiered on in true Wincanton spirit with the hope of a repeat of the match at Wincanton earlier in the year.  However, the Folke team were in a confident mood after a good result last week plus the home advantage.  


Back in the club house after a delicious home made chicken pie (or was it pork Ian?) Wincanton captain Alan declared the result to be a 4 ½ :1 ½  victory for Folke. All the pairing were very close and once more we had a very enjoyable days golf with our good friends from Wincanton. Big thank-you to Steve, Lisa, Andy and the Wincanton team. We look forward to the Ryder Cup event at Folke  in August.



Our friends from Westbury immerged from the back lanes  at Folke that was clothed in bright sunshine with a gentle breeze. After a chat and a coffee the six groups set off round the course. It was a delight to guide the Westbury ‘first timers’ around our  little treasure of a course that proved to be an interesting challenge for them at times. The motivating words from our Captain after our big defeat at  Charminster last week must have had some effect as the reports from the team hinted at some good results.

And so it proved. After a special carvery laid on by Lisa and Steve, Westbury Captain Rodney announced that Folke had won 5:1.

Big thank to Steve, Lisa, Andy and the Centre Staff for a great days golf and thanks also to Rodney and the Westbury team for a very enjoyable match full of the usual banter. We look forward to our return match at Westbury later in the year.
