2017 Hardy A Match Fixtures

  The 2017 fixtures are shown in the Schedule  below. This league is singles match play for players with handicaps of 10 or less.

2017 Captain:

 Martin Blatchford



A strong side was at Captain Blatchy’s disposal for the Hardy A team for the last match of the season. The skipper was quietly confident that the boys would bring home the bacon but first we had to eat some by tackling chef Lisa’s now famous buffet breakfast.

There was banter aplenty on the first Tee as Folke looked to avenge a 7-1 loss way back in May.The early signs were good with all matches being in the ascendancy at the half way stage. However things were starting to take a turn for the worse as some members lacked the match fitness to see the their games out. As the boys started to come in the signs started to change.

Gisborne, Gale, Miller, Harris and Blatchy all won quite comfortably to ensure the home side’s first victory of the season. Losers on the day were Skinny (bet that shocked you) McCarthy and Smith. A first victory in our last game of the season gave the Captain something to smile about as did seeing Skinny dressing up in lycra to cycle home!

Thanks must go to the Crane Valley boys - a great bunch who stayed after for drinks and merriment, to Lisa for another fine breakfast, Andy for giving us such a great stage to perform on, and last but by no means least all the players that have played for me this year especially those who have played out of the handicap bracket knowing they would be facing a tough afternoon on the course, without you it wouldn't happen!

One to finish on......Why do golfers carry an extra pair of pants? In case they get a hole in one.....unless they are Matt Boon :-)

See you Sunday for Club Champs!
