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)

The April CCT was organised by Rod Plowman and took place at Orchardleigh Golf Course on a beautiful but cool Spring day on 28th April. With the perfume of the wild garlic wafting in the breeze the 20 Folke players worked their way around the parkland course and when the cards were checked the winner was Reg Whitelock with a brilliant score of 43 points. The winning team was Ian Tinsley (39). Phil Chant (37), Mike Baker (40) and Terry Cotton (40). All in all a very enjoyable day and a big thank you to Rod for organising the event. See above for details of the May County Card at Yeovil on Thursday 26th May.
