Knockout Sponsor Information

The team arrived at Sturminster -  one of our favourite venues - on a mild dry June day but the forecast was for continuous rain  from 9:30 onwards. After coffee and a welcome chat with our Sturminster friends in the beautifully refurbished clubhouse, our captains gave the order to get going ASAP ahead of  the rain. It was to no avail as the rain began to fall as the pairs moved off to the allotted tees. The fairways  and greens and lush parkland  were a delight to behold in spite of the continuous drizzle throughout the day.  Eventually our bedraggled heroes returned to the clubhouse for  welcome drinks, a delicious cottage pie meal,  and another of our captain’s golf quizzes. The captains thanked the Golf Course staff for the excellent hospitality and great course conditions then  captain Peter announced the overall result as a 4:3 win for Sturminster. Thanks again to Sturminster Captain Dave Dorrell and his team and with 2019 honours even we will meet again in 2020.

 May County Card Competition

The May county card took place on Thursday 30 on the beautiful Cranborne Chase parkland at Rushmore Golf Club. After the usual bacon rolls and coffee, thirteen players (including our old friend  Harry Eden) set off around the course. The long fairways, fast sloping greens and a brisk south westerly breeze posed quite a challenge but clearly not a problem for our in-form Folke duo of Mark Maquire and George Taylor  who finished with 40 and 37 stableford points respectively. Our rejuvenated  octogenarian Bill Heybourne  maintained his current form by scoring  an impressive 32 point and also won the nearest the pin competition. The winning team was Stuart Beardsley, Mark Maguire, Clive Andrews and Mike Weston. Congratulations and a  big thank you to Mark for arranging the event.

Next  County Card Match

Due to the great amount of fixtures and other events in June and July, and lack of available Thursdays, Mark has determined that the only convenient date for the next CCT is Tuesday 9 July. The event will take place at Orchardleigh, near Frome. Five tee times have been booked and the first tee off is 9:46 am. The cost, including Bacon Roll and coffee on arrival, is £25 plus prize money. The Entry Sheet is on the Notice Board.
