September County Card Trophy

Fifteen of our finest gathered at Bulberry Woods on a bright typically English early autumn morning and after coffee and bacon rolls (and some bargain golf shoe hunting in the pro shop) set off in pursuit of the September CCT. The weather held and the course, although damp from the previous days rain, was in fine condition. Nevertheless, good scoring was at a premium and when all of our mighty men were enjoying a well earned shandy or three in the sunshine on the outside terrace, Skinny checked, and rechecked his arithmetic and announced that the winner with 33 points was our resident jock, Norman (Hitman) McCabe and the team prize went to Norman, John and Mark after countback.


October County Card

This match will take place at the Yeovil  Old Course on Thursday 26 October at 9:30 am.  The cost will be £20 including prizes. The Entry Sheet is on the Club Notice Board

Match Result - Parley Court (Away) 6 October

The team arrived at Parley Court for the final match of the season and with a certain amount of trepidation about the unknown new course layout at Parley. Most of our Golf SatNav watches  were  even more confused than our players but the initial air of optimism prevailed in spite of the un-forecasted downpour just as the leading pairs teed off. The Parley team, bolstered by a couple of the Parley ladies, guided our men around the new course with the usual amount of banter and friendly rivalry. It soon became clear that straight shots were  vital since the rough areas bordering the fairways just swallowed up any wayward ball.


After the refreshments and an excellent buffet lunch the two captains thanked the Parley staff for the great state of the course and the clubhouse hospitality and the result was announced as a 3 :3 draw. This was a good result for our final match away and we all look forward to seeing the Parley team again in 2018.

Senior Captain’s Day - 10 October

On a grey overcast day 22 seniors duly arrived for the annual Senior Captains Day challenge. And a challenge it proved to be with captain Mike’s cunning siting of temporary holes on top of mounds and charity  donations for three putting, in addition to  the straightest drive, nearest the pin and a post-match putting contest. The groups made good progress around the course in the overcast Autumn morning, bouyed on by the thought of a Lisa  special carvery  on return to the clubhouse where they were joined for lunch by other senior players who were unable to play in the match.  Everyone enjoyed the golf - some more than others - but particularly our prospective 2018 vice captain Peter Gibson who managed a magnificent 46 points to win the match (and the nearest the pin contest) ,  with Ian Tinsley  in second place with 43 points, and Stuart Beardsley (who also won the straightest drive competition)  third with 38 points. The putting contest was won by captain Mike Weston. After the delicious carvery,  Mike thanked the Centre Staff for the hospitality and the course conditions and  the senior players  for all the support he had received during the year . He was pleased to report that the days events had produced the grand total of £170 for the British Heart Foundation. Well done Mike and we look forward to the final senior events of 2017.
