With the Yeovil Newton course closed for the day, the August CCT Match took place on  the Main Course on Thursday 23 August. Good day, glorious weather, ,brilliant breakfast (for those who had pre-ordered it) but little disappointment YGC hadn't informed us that it was temporary greens due to course maintenance. But in true Folke tradition we got on with it and had a thoroughly enjoyable mornings golf.  The ovrall winner with a score of 42 - 3 points ahead of the nearest rival Doug - was Gareth Lewis, and the winning team with an average  score of  33.5 was  Terry Cotton, Grahame Knight, Ian Tinsley and Paul Fletcher. Well done to the winners and a big thank-you to Reg for organising the event.

Report - Kingweston/Cannington/Folke 3 Way Match - 30 Aug @ Kingweston

The stillness of the early Autumn morning was quickly shattered as the 24 players arrived at Kingweston for the annual 3 way tie. A gentle breeze wafted around the course that was still recovering from the long dry summer but the parched fairways and patchy greens that were to prove quite a challenge did not detract from the enjoyment of the event between the 3 teams that have become great friends after playing together many times  over the past few years. After the usual coffee and banter, the 8 three balls set out from various tees.

With the groups so spread out the course seemed eerily quite and it was difficult to get a feel for how things were going amongst the team  members until later in the day when the players eventually returned to the clubhouse and then departed for  refreshments and the usual very delicious  lunch at the Quarry Inn.

With the creative accounting all complete, the three captains thanked the teams , and the Quarry Inn staff and announced the  results. In third place was Cannington with 222 points. Second was Folke with  242 and in first place with 265 was the home team Kingweston. The nearest the pin was won by Folke’s Grahame Knight.

A big thank you to Ian Price and the Kingweston Team for another great golfing day and we all look forward to the next series of matches in 2019.
