After a fantastic home win on 6th June against Wincanton, they had their own back on Saturday.
Conditions...well if I say it was a little bit different, would be an understatement! This game instead of the hot summers day we had at home, Wincanton brought us gale force winds and torrential rain storms - not helped that Wincanton is the most open course in the league. I looked over on one hole, only to see Chris Jowett's golf bag on its side, umbrella in bits and Chris on the floor - she was fine thank goodness. Mary Marshall came in after the first 9 holes and had a complete change of clothes - maybe we all should of done this as she and Sandra Basford managed our only win. Well done ladies.
Wincanton in the wind, was not a good introduction to Three Counties for two new players in our team, but both said they enjoyed the team spirit and would love to play again.
This weeks team was:
Angela and Dave Baker
Joe and Christine Jowett
Steve and Becky Cousins
Nigel Brighouse and Martin Abbott
Bob and Dave Chambers
Sandra Basford and Mary Marshal. A big thank you to all who played
Looking at the league tables, our 4 points has put us one point behind Folke, so it looks like its all on our last match! This will be away to Bulbury Woods on 31st August, which should be interesting as we have not played this golf course before. Where is Bulbury Woods? just outside Poole, near Bournemouth. A practise round prior to the match could be planned?.
A reminder to all the Freeman Trophy day will be at Long Sutton this year on October 5th. Please make a note in your diary.
