Match Report, Charminster (Home) 17 July

Having been soundly thrashed 6:0 in the away fixture there was a certain amount of trepidation in the Folke team that gathered in the clubhouse prior to the game. With the passing of another rain free week, the brown fairways contrasted with the verdant greens that had been well tended by Andy and were in excellent shape.  The sky was somewhat grey as the teams set out but this greyness was not reflected in the usual banter that is always a feature when we get together with the Charminster boys.  There were some fine examples of putting skills on display especially on the sixth where a large frog had taken refuge in the cup (probably the safest place to hide) but was soon returned to the hedgerow by George. Back in the clubhouse the teams reassembled for a Lisa special lunch (not toad-in-the hole but plaice, chips and peas) and after the vote of thanks to Lisa, Steve, Andy and the Centre Staff, Charminster captain John Maddocks announced the result to be a 6:0 win for Folke.

Honours even and a big thank-you to John and the Charrminster Team for  a very friendly and enjoyable day.

Match Report - Cannington  (Home) 12 July

Twas a sultry day as the early risers from Cannington arrived at Folke (some via the breakfast bar at Sherborne Station) for another round of this popular fixture. After the usual banter and an impromptu helicopter fly past the pairings set off around the course.  Thankfully, the thunder storms hinted at in the forecast did not materialise and eventually all made it safely back to the clubhouse for some very welcome refreshments.

Having been soundly beaten earlier in the week at Sturminster the Folke boys were hopeful of a much improved result.  And so it proved to be when, after a baked potato lunch with all the trimmings,  Cannington Captain Chris Nunn announced that Folke had won 5½ : ½.   

The two captains thanked the Centre staff for the hospitality and great course condition even after such an extended dry weather period. This was the first meeting of the two teams this year and everyone is looking forward to the return match at Cannington and the three way match with Kingweston later in the year.
