The detailed results are on the Results Page.

Round 2  of the 2020 competition was played in very high windy conditions that proved to be quite a challenge to most competitors - but not Darren Priddle who scored an amazing 40 points, 6 points clear of Mark Maguire in second place. See the Results Page for the detailed scores.

The first County Card Trophy match of 2020 took place on 23 January on our home course at Folke. After the freezing cold earlier in the week the day dawned grey and damp with a chilling breeze, but undaunted, after the usual chit chat and pre-match coffees our boys set off around the course to   their appointed starting tees.  Some four hours later, no doubt spurred on by the cold wind and the thought of another Lisa special lunch, the players drifted back to the club house after what proved to be a challenging course in the damp conditions - although, as usual this winter - no temporary greens.


The lunch certainly lived up to expectations in the form of a delicious Folke made steak pie, chips and peas and, after diligent calculations by previous winner Mike Weston the winners on the day were announced as follows:

The overall winner with 35 points:  Mark Magure

In second place after countback on 34 points: Geoff Bannister

Winning Team with  97 points total: Mike Weston, Mark Maguire, Grahame Knight

Nearest the pin on the 6th Hole: Phil Chant


All in all, another great day at Folke so a big thank-you to Steve, Lisa and Andy and to Mike Weston for keeping order.
