3 Counties Winter Salva - Final round at Long Sutton 22.3.15

We could not have asked for a better day to end the Winter Salva. As we teed off the wind dropped and the sun came out. No hailstone covered greens today. The course was set up beautifully but listening to the talk in the bar afterwards, the teams generally found it hard to cope with the greens. All appreciated their condition but those pin positions! If you were not below the hole, you were in trouble. You had to be dead accurate or the ball would slink past, gather speed and end up miles away at the bottom of the green, however softly you sent it on its way! Scores across the board were down. It really made you appreciate every point you entered on your card! We came in first on the day with 274, Folke second, 267, Wincanton third, 262 and Cannington last with 252. Our team did well in that we moved overall from last to second, beating Wincanton by one point, but we could not catch Folke who finished 18 points ahead of everyone. Their round on their own course, where they scored 43 more points than ourselves and 26 points more than Wincanton in second place, did for us all. This is the third successive year that Folke have won, which is probably why they did not remember to bring the Trophy with them!

Big thanks to all Long Sutton who played in the four rounds but special thanks to the team on the day – Steve Stopforth, Sam Clarke, Nigel Brighouse, Judith Fox, Sandra Ford, Sean Monaghan, Sandra Basford, Henry, Rupert, Ray, Tim Edwards and myself.
