 Winter K/O Competitions


The Club and Senior Winter Knockout pairings were drawn at the October Meeting and the pairings can be seen by clicking on the links below and are also shown  on the club Notice Board.

The  October County Card match took place at Yeovil Old  Course on Tuesday 10 October. The recent heavy showery weather gave way to a very pleasant sunny late Autumn  day with a persistent breeze  to keep us on our toes. The smokin’ hot golf deal (courtesy of Reg.) included an optional  full breakfast that most of our motley band regarded as an essential pre-match ritual. A short time later,  the draw was made and George led the tee off of the four groups of 4 that made their way around the course over the next four hours. Eventually all made it safely back to the club house despite some  wayward driving - particular by the pair in the buggy!  Ian kindly did the mathematics and the results were declared as follows:

Top Scorer with 37 points : Phil Chant

Top Team with a total of 120 Points: Ian, Stuart, Terry and Geoff

Special award for being Blobmaster with 6 Blobs: Doug Butler


A very big thank-you to Reg for arranging the event and congratulations to Phil on his success. Watch this space and the Notice Board for the November County Card details.

Parley Court  (Away) - 3 October

This was our final senior friendly match of the season and  always a  very popular one too.  We were given the usual warm friendly welcome by Parley captain Mike Travis and the team and even the weather was on it’s best behaviour after the torrential rains earlier in the week. The new Parley course is  now well matured and was  in great condition though some of us struggled to get to grips with the sloping and somewhat slower greens. The initial indications as the pairings moved round the course were that things were very close with most groups all square or one or two points adrift. Back in the clubhouse, after a cold buffet and yummy dessert (and the usual team banter!)  Folke Captain Peter thanked the Parley team, the clubhouse staff and the Greenkeepers for their hospitality and a great day of golf, and announced that Folke had managed to win the day 3½ : 2½ .  A big thanks  again to Parley and we look forward to seeing them at Folke next year.

Congratulations to Doug Butler - The top scoring Folke Team Player - 2019

Message From Seniors Captain Peter

I would like to thank everyone who played in the Seniors inter-club friendly matches this year. We had a successful year and won 10 of our 19 matches with two halved. We also won the Ryder Cup against Wincanton and came second in the Triangular match against Kingweston and Cannington. Particular congratulations are due to Doug Butler, our most successful player, who played in 15 matches and scored 12 points - an unbelievable success rate of 80%. I trust our winter golf will be equally as enjoyable as we fine tune our games for next year's challenges!

Many Thanks,

Peter Gibson


Well Done Doug!!
