Club  Knockout     Senior   Knockout



At the appointed hour (or was it an hour early?) Our 12 men good and true turned up at the beautiful White Horse Country Park for the Westbury competition. The friendliness and great hospitality we always experience was in evidence once again as we were welcomed by Westbury captain George and his merry band bearing bacon rolls and coffee. The sun was shining on the tree-lined course  as Terry  led the team from the first tee. A stiff breeze and slow undulating greens added to the challenge faced by the team and as the players drifted back to the clubhouse it soon became evident that this was not our finest hour.  After drinks in the bar and a most delicious meal the results were announced and thanks to Doug and Roy we narrowly escaped a complete whitewash losing by 5 ½ to ½.  A big thank you George and the Westbury Team, and the staff in the clubhouse  for the excellent hospitality . This was the final home game for Westbury  under the captainship of George after his two year spell in office. We will all be back again next year though if we don’t improve we might forget the golf and just come for the food!

Match Result

3 Way Match - Cannigton/Kingweston/Folke

Cannington 29 August

It was Cannington's turn to host the annual triangular match with ourselves and Kingweston played on a Stableford scoring system as opposed to matchplay .Each team had a player in the eight threeball matches and on a decent late summer day (fortunately not as hot as the previous day) the three captains set off on the now familiar Cannington College course. Scoring proved to be not easy and there were some rueful looks among all players with the greenside bunkers coming into play all too often , our Captain,in particular wishing that he'd brought his bucket and spade !


After the first four matches had been completed Folke held a slight lead but as the final scores came in it was clear that Cannington had returned some very decent scores, with Kingweston on their heels. We had to be content with the Bronze medal position, the final scores being Cannington 243, Kingweston 234 and Folke 226. Congratulations to Cannington and many thanks to them for being excellent hosts- next year then Chaps!!
