  County Card Trophy

The June County Card Trophy match eventually took place at Orchardleigh Golf Course on Tuesday 9 July. This was a special event that marked  the half century of Folke’s one and only Steve Harris. Steve was invited to make a guest appearance with the seniors as part of the Folke birthday celebrations. In true Steve style (although he did get off to a bumpy start!) he demonstrated  his legendary golfing skills and made an amazing 39 points to head the leader board. In second place was Peter Gibson with 38 points after blobbing the last hole.

Due to the busy  schedule of Senior Events at Folk in August and September the next CCT match will be on October 10 at Yeovil Golf Course, first tee off at 10:00 am. Watch this space and the Notice Board for further details

The annual Ryder Cup match against Wincanton took place on 13 August. The first 3 pairs played 9 holes of foursomes, and the last 3 pairs played  9 holes of fourballs. This was followed by coffee and donuts then twelve 9 hole singles. It was all square after the foursomes/four balls so everything hung on the 12 singles and, as the pairs drifted back to the clubhouse  it was still  very closely tied. The Folke guys battled on (one Folke golfer bravely continued on having lost his lucky black glove!) and eventually all returned to the clubhouse for a hot lunch and refreshments.  After a welcome from Wincanton Captain Alan Rogers, Folke Captain Peter announced the result as a win for Folke 9½:8½. Big thank you to Alan and the Wincanton Team and the Clubhouse team Ebony and the two Sams. We look forward to the Ryder Cup at Folke in 2020.

 Fosseway (Home) Tues 20 August

Captain Jerry and the Fosseway team arrived at Folke on a bright clear morning for the second leg of the 2019 fixture, having won their home match against Folke way back in March. Conditions were perfect for golf and the course was in great condition with fast greens and lush fairways. The pairings departed to the allotted tees and the match commenced led off by the  two captains. After the first few holes, the signs were not great with many of the Folke pairs 1 or 2 holes down but later on, the home course advantage seems to have kicked in and our boys were looking more confident. And so it proved. After refreshments and a Lisa special faggots and mash Fosseway Captain Jerry announced a 6:0 win for Folke. Big thanks to Lisa, Andy, Steve and the Fosseway Team for a very enjoyable match.

Come and join in the fun and support Julia’s House. Lots of interesting challenges, good food, and prizes to be won.
