County Card Trophy


The July CCT took place at Long Sutton on Thursday 27 July at 10:10 am. Little details of the results are available but the winner was Ned Compton-Dart with a magnificent 39 points and John Vinson and George Taylor tied for second with 35 points. Further information will be added when available but meanwhile, make a note of the August CCT match which will take place at Orchard Leigh, Frome, on Thursday 24 Augaust. The first tee time is 9:36 am and 3 tee times are available although more may be added if required. The cost will be £20 plus £2 prizes and coffee/bacon rolls are available  in the club house.

After significant overnight rain our Ryder Cup team arrived at Wincanton expecting a day of wind and rain but the clouds had dispersed and the course was bathed in sunshine with a light breeze throughout the day.  The  buoyant mood continued as the fourballs and foursomes set off round the course led by captain Mike and partner Ned who unfortunately struggled to make any headway  against some stiff opposition.  On return to the clubhouse the team had mixed fortunes with  the next three pairings winning  2&1  but 2 further losses made  the overall total even at 3:3 after the morning rounds.  After a short coffee break the singles matches commenced led once more by Mike and Ned who both redeemed themselves with narrow victories.  Some very close games ensued with both Doug and Grahame only succumbing on the final hole and as the pairs drifted in it was clear that Wincanton had narrowly got the upper hand.  

After refreshments and a welcome portion of sausage, egg and chips the final result was announced as a 10:8 win for Wincanton. Big thank-you to Malcolm and the Wincanton team and also to the clubhouse staff for the excellent hospitality. All-in-all it was a good days  golf and  a pleasure to meet up with  some very  familiar faces in the Wincanton team.

Match Result

Canford School (Away) 3 August

After the continual rain the day before it was with some relief when we assembled at the lovely Canford school course in sunshine, which more or less stayed with us for the duration of the match. The course was in fine condition and none of us could use that as an excuse for getting well beaten by our hosts. Only Grahame Knight and Ian Sandy won their match putting a little bit of respectability on the 6-1 scoreline.


Everyone else knew they could do better and there was a fair bit of good natured "wait until you come to our place" banter with the home team. Many thanks to Canford for a good mornings golf (despite the result) ,and we look forward to the return at Folke at the end of the month.
