3 Counties Winter Knockout Cup
It was third time lucky for Long Sutton 3 Counties team on Saturday 4th January.
I had to reschedule our match between Wincanton and us on two previous dates, this was due to illness and the wet weather conditions.
We had to play the match on a neutral course therefore it was agreed to play at Cannington.
A huge thank you to Cannington Golf Club for hosting the match and allowing us to play, their hospitality and warm welcome was well received.
Some of the Long Sutton team enjoyed some delightful egg and bacon rolls before the game, but this was no match against the Wincanton team who tucked into the full English!!! Maxine had clearly overestimated the distance to travel and they were nearly 2hrs early!
The course was very wet in places but the greens were in excellent condition, after all, this was Winter golf.
As we know Winter golf can be a challenge however and certainly on the plus side Ann McRae and myself had a smile, we had 5 adjustment shots! Happy days.
Thank you to the team on the day, we won 4 games to one.
Myself and Dave Baker won 6/4
Steve Cousins and Dave Chambers won 5/3
Steve Stopforth and Tim Edwards won 3/2
Ann McRae and Phillip Holloway won 3/2
Ian Jackaman and Guy Willis lost 2/1 (a very tight match).
I have pleasure in announcing that this win means we meet Cricket St Thomas in the semi-final.
We will be playing this match at Wheathill on the 19th Jan 2020 teeing off at 11am.
Let’s hope the weather will be kind to us over the next two weeks.
Anyone wishing to join us in the three Counties matches next season, please let me know, either by email or add your name to the "interested list", I will be putting on the notice board in the hallway.
Thank you for your support
