Seniors Into the Scratch Knock-Out Final!

The Seniors team played Oake Manor in the Scratch KO bowl at Enmore on Friday.

First out was Dick Butcher who was up against a 3 handicapper county player - a tough ask. Dick was soon 5 down and eventually lost 6 and 5. One down!

Next out was John Parkinson who played extremely well and was soon 3 up.

Third out was Martin Hawkins, playing a 5 handicapper. The match was very tight and always looked to be going the full 18 holes.

Fourth out was Mick Capps who was always in front in this match, eventually winning 3 and 2. Match all square.

Last out was Rich Bartin. Unfortunately Rich went 4 down early on and never managed to recover this gap. 2 -1 down.

Meanwhile John lost 2 holes on the trot and had to go down the 18th - a par 5. John hit a superb 2nd to within 4 feet of the pin! Match all square. 2 - 2 .

Martin meanwhile went 1 up on the 17th. On the 18th, he hit a superb drive over 300 yards (down wind, down hill!) leaving an 8 iron in, landing just short of the green before chipping the ball dead!

3- 2 win!!  Great game .

We now play Bath at a venue and date TBC.

Well played all.

Seniors Avalon League Update

On Monday 7th August the seniors team played The Mendip in the Avalon league.

Out first were Martin Hawkins and Nigel Griffiths, who played very well over 9 holes but were only 1 up at the turn.A careless 10th by us meant the match was all square, however we won the next 4 holes to win 4 and 3.

Next out were John Parkinson and Colin Hardaway. Again a very tough match but  ended up winning on the 16th.

Third out were Rich Bartin and Rob Ford. Having lost the first 4 holes they never managed to recover and lost 4 and 3.

Fourth out were Phil Bowditch and Mike Bowling. Both played well in a tough match andended up winning on the 17th.

Last out were Norman Banfield and John Williams. They were 4 up at one stage but gave it away on the back 9 but held on to halve the match.

This result puts us 9 points clear at the top of East Division with 2 matches to go.

Well played all.

The Seniors Section - Celtic Challenge 2017



Played on Thursday 13th July 2017 on a lovely sunny day

60 players took part in the Celtic Challenge.


Lots of players had their Countries flags and colours. The team Captains were Ray Boulton (England) and Douglas Mc Hamilton ( Celts) let the Battle begin.

The first 3 games saw England take an early lead and although the Celts fought bravely and with half the games played England were leading 80 points to 63points. The Celts had their big guns in the last matches so it was all to play for, with players representing Ireland, Wales, Scotland, Italy and Isle of Wight, England would have a hard task. The England team kept up the momentum and won by 138 points England – 114 points Celts.

Thank you all for playing

Better luck Celts next year.

Match all square.

Third and fourth out were Martin Hawkins and John Parkinson. Both players were I/2 down at various stages in their respective matches.

Seniors Avalon League Update

Four matches have been played over the last month.

After a disappointing away loss 4-1 to the Isle of Wedmore and a slightly better 3-2 away loss to Stockwood Vale, the team were again away to The Mendip. The team had a much better result winning 3 1/2 to 1 1/2 against a strong side.

This result meant that we had a slight lead over Stockwood Vale, our next opponents at home (our first at home). Fielding a strong team we ran out winners 4-1 (3 wins and 2 halves). This now puts us at the top of the table with 4 home matches to go.

This means that the outcome of the league position is now in our hands as opposed to this time last year, when we needed other matches to go our way.


Well done all.
