Narrow Defeat at Henstridge

 The seniors were narrowly defeated by 1 point at Henstridge on May 17th. (See the Results Panel  above for details). Two pairs - Ian/George and Richard/John managed to win their match and Reg and Doug halved. Steve Taylor gallantly playing on his own lost on the last hole. The course and greens were  good as was  the chilli and rice and then sponge cake in the clubhouse after the match! It was a very enjoyable day in spite of the result so thank you to Captain Steve Penny and the Henstridge team and we will meet again at Folke in September. (Photos: Ian Tinsley)
