Report - Senior Captain’s Day -  25 September

After the horrendous weekend weather we were blessed with a lovely late Autumn day with sunshine and a fair breeze.  Spurred on by the thoughts of the various challenges around course (and a Lisa Special carvery to come) the match commenced tee’d off by Captain Mike. Back in the clubhouse, Club Captain Terry exerted his great skills at money extraction and with the proceeds of the raffle, putting competition and Whisky Bottle competition, over £200 was raised for charity.  After the delicious meal the match winners were announced and the overall winner was Gareth Lewis (36) on countback from second placed George Taylor .(Who also won the straightest drive and blind pairs) The other winners are shown below. A big thank-you to Steve, Lisa, and Andy for a most enjoyable day at Folke Golf Centre and special thanks to Mike Terry, Stuart and Peter for making it all go with a swing.

Result- Christchurch

 Away Fri 21 Sep


Another sunny Autumn day and a cracking breakfast made by Lisa. Great to see Dave Bamford back in form again with a 35 point  winning score. Reg and Ian were joint close second.


On a slightly damp and overcast morning, the two teams set off on what turned out to be a hard fought match, but unfortunately we were unable to maintain our good run of result loosing by our second highest defeat, but never the least we have had a fantastic season playing against other clubs. So a very big thankyou to every one who has taken part in all the matches.


Folke won with an overall score 3 & 2. Well done to everyone who made the long journey on the day and coming away with a brilliant win.
