Senior Team v Kingweston

Home - 17 March

We were pleased to welcome the Kingweston boys on a dry but windy day on the course at Folke. The recent information on the Corona Virus did not impact the day except for some revisions to personal interactions and a feeling that things were going to be very different in the near future.


The groups were   staged around the course on various tees to reduce the size of the lunch gathering and the match commenced, led off by Kingweston Captain Jim Williams. Never ever having won a previous match against Kingweston the Folke boys were hoping for at least a half but much to our surprise, when the scores were added up, we had managed a 5:2 victory. After the game, the Steak and Ale Pie and raspberry roulade were well received so a big thank-you to Steve and Lisa and Andy. Thanks also to the Kingweston team for an enjoyable match and we all hope that we will be able to compete again at Kingweston later in the year.


See the Results Page for the detailed scores.


Breakfast Stableford - 10 March

The popular Breakfast Stableford took place on an overcast, windy but dry day that followed on from the days of heavy March showers. The days format started with the front nine hole, then a hot buffet breakfast before finishing with the back nine holes. Seventeen players set off round the slightly shortened (but no temporary greens) course. The wind was not cold but quite challenging  although most players coped very well on the first nine. After the first nine holes the leader  at the breakfast tables was Grahame Knight with 24 points. It is interesting to learn what stimulating effect a hearty breakfast would have on golfing skills. The final results were to show that cooked breakfasts are possibly not the best training diet. The total points scored by all players was 579, with 55% scored on the front nine dropping to 45% on the back nine. But who cares, it was a brilliant breakfast so big thanks to Lisa and Steve.  The overall winner was Stuart Beardsley with 44 after countback from Grahame Knight. In third place was Brian Dash with 39. Roll on the next Breakfast Stableford on 23 July!
