2018 Schedule

On what was probably the best day of the year so far the players took to the course with Skinny leading the pack, defying the baying crowd he started off with a birdie two however that was to be the high point of his day as he came in with a 5&4 loss which was probably a good result for the village dweller.

Captain Blatchy was next sporting new clubs he hoped for big things but alas the only big thing on the day was his defeat losing 4&3. The ever reliable Lilly Allen endured a tough afternoon but dug in before succumbing to a 6&4 loss.

PCSO Maguire is another member who can always be relied on to help in times of crisis reminding me he was undefeated in Hardy A,-  a statement that is now a thing of the past as he shook hands on a creditable 3&2 loss.Matt (brown pants) Boon dragged himself away from the Wagtail to perform heroics getting himself 2 up early on, used to delivering mail, the jubilant Boon was happy to deliver a 2up victory for his Captain.

Sixth out and unbelievably being allowed to play twice in a weekend was Lee Smithy, fresh from claiming the roll up money on Saturday, the confident Smith’s form stayed with him as he came home with a fine win 3&2 

Number seven was Hardy B skipper Leaky Lloyd. Again another member that will always make himself available to fight the good fight, a tough day on the course followed with a 6&4 loss.

Last but not least was Mr Serious, Village Hinks. This match was a bit like watching Susan Boyle for the first time no one expected the crane legged Village golfer to get anything other than a hiding but he stuck two fingers up at the establishment to come in with the performance of the day earning a half having been three down stood on eleven....Top Work Dinker!

Back in the club house we were greeted with Roast potatoes and meat sandwiches from top Chef Lisa. The banter was flying about between the sides and a great time was had by all. My thanks to all who played and to Nathan and his Bulbury team - a great bunch of lads, and also to Andy who got the course in great condition despite the inclement weather!!



Knock Out Cup - 24 March

Folke Hardy A 2½ Bulbury Woods 5½

For the first Hardy A fixture of the season Captain Blatchy had to juggle his pack of jokers following some fixture confusion. Unfortunately this meant that the side to take the field would be a largely Hardy B side with only Skinny Love being a single figure handicapper, and on current form it would be fair to say he would struggle to justify selection in a Hardy C side!!    

Dinker - “…. gave the performance of the day”
