County Card Trophy Match

3 May - Folke Golf Centre

The April match that was to take place at Folke Golf Course finally got underway on  3 May. Much to everyone’s relief, the rain finally began giving way to  warmer May spring days as 5  three man teams set off round the course.Back in the clubhouse after refreshments and a plate of Steve’s sausage and mash the results were added up and teams 1 and 5 tied for first place with 93 pints. The highest individual score was the in-form Grahame Knight with 35 points. Big thanks to Steve, Andy and the Centre staff for another good day and also to Ned for organising the event.


May County Card Trophy Match

The May CCT will take place at Bulbury Woods on Thursday 31 May. The cost will be £15 plus £2 for prizes. First Tee Off is at 10:00 am so please arrive by 9:15 am. The Entry Sheet will be on the Notice Board on Thursday 10 May.

The day dawn bright and sunny as 12 of our finest arrived at Charminster in great spirits after a good winning run of matches. The course was in great shape as the teams set out but it soon became apparent that things were not going quite our way.  


Back in the club house after welcome refreshments  the delicious pie and mash provided by the staff proved to be the second stuffing of the day since all six of the groups had lost.



However, this did not detract from the day at Charminster where the usual friendly banter, great hospitality, and a course resplendent in the warm sunshine  made for a good days golf - in spite of the result!

A big thank-you to John Maddocks and the team and staff at Charminster and also to stand-in Folke Captain Peter Gibson.

(Message received today  from Senior Captain Mike:

No worries - Keep your heads up and don’t get despondent boys - we have had a good run so far and there are plenty more matches to come. )

Our friends from Westbury immerged from the back lanes  at Folke that was clothed in bright sunshine with a gentle breeze. After a chat and a coffee the six groups set off round the course. It was a delight to guide the Westbury ‘first timers’ around our  little treasure of a course that proved to be an interesting challenge for them at times. The motivating words from our Captain after our big defeat at  Charminster last week must have had some effect as the reports from the team hinted at some good results.

And so it proved. After a special carvery laid on by Lisa and Steve, Westbury Captain Rodney announced that Folke had won 5:1.

Big thank to Steve, Lisa, Andy and the Centre Staff for a great days golf and thanks also to Rodney and the Westbury team for a very enjoyable match full of the usual banter. We look forward to our return match at Westbury later in the year.
