County Card Trophy

The April event  took place at Wheathill on Thursday 27 April and with the spring weather returning after a cold few days it was a pleasure to be out in the beautiful Somerset countryside. Nineteen of our Seniors were joined by Club Captain Terry (to walk round only-no golf yet) for the first time since his enforced departure from the Kingweston match a few weeks ago and it was good to have him there (complete with built in defibrillator). The usual banter was in full flow and even more so with Terry's presence.


Six groups set off in the sunshine and despite slow greens there was some good scoring. When all had returned to the clubhouse the scores were totted up with Grahame, Harry and Ian all coming in with a very respectable 39 points. After the cards were checked Grahame was declared the winner on countback and received the trophy and prize from Terry- Harry and Ian were in joint second place and the team prize was won by Dave Guy, Mark Maguire and Peter Gibson with George Taylor winning the nearest the pin bottle of wine. .A big thank you to Wheathill for their warm welcome and see below for the details of the next CCT event.


Charminster (Away)  16 May

On a chilly (or should that be “chillie”?) and grey day,  14 of our finest set out over the hills and dales of the Charminster course. The rain held off until the end of the match but the uphill/downhill lies and sloping greens turned out to be quite a  challenge. Most pairings were very close but in the end only Harry and Grahame managed to overcome the Charminster opposition. The refreshments, team banter, sausage casserole, and welcoming words from Charminster Captain Bob Irwin  soon had  everyone warmed up. The captains thanked the Charminster staff and our captain announced the final score as a 6:1 win by Charminster. The return match will be held at Folke  on Tuesday 18 July.

Thursday Bowmaker

11 May

 

With a  reduced turnout  due to ongoing knockout competitions the seniors played a Bowmaker with three teams of three plus support from Richard over the first nine holes. In-spite of a brilliant performance from our new recruit Ian Sandy, Team 3 (George, Ian and Mark)  had to settle for second place just 1 point behind Team 1 (Stuart, Grahame and Geoff ).

Swindle Results



By decapitating his Ball Retriever with his drive on the 16th, Captain Mike Weston was a major contender for the Match Senior Moment Prize but was beaten to first place by Roger from Westbury who had arrived at Folke  a week early. His prize was a new 2017 Diary (Roger - Please add an entry for September 14th).

After a run of two heavy defeats the Folke Seniors were ready to up their game and show their true colours. Captain Mike and Geoff  led the field, playing Westbury Captain George Henderson and team mate Roger. As they progressed round the course just keeping their nose in front the signs from the other pairings were not so optimistic. The individual pairing results were quite close but back in the club house the overall score was compiled and low and behold - another 5:1 defeat!  Congratulations to the Westbury team  and good luck to Folke in the return match in September. Big thanks to the Folke Centre Staff for great hospitality and fine course conditions.

After an unfortunate incident on the 11th Tee the enterprising Ned came up with a novel idea to dry his trousers. It’s perhaps just as well that the ladies had tee’d off earlier but his plan worked and he went on to win by 3 clear points!!
