After two weeks of playing golf in stifling conditions it was a relief to have a cool breeze on the course. We took full advantage of this and returned a first class result against Rushmore Seniors winning 5 matches to 1.
After Chris Hockey and I squeezed home on the last and Alec Lyon and Graham (sandals!) Brimble also won 1 up, I was a little concerned. However a fine 5 and 3 victory by Dave and Len set the scene. Martin and Richard followed up with a 5 and 4 win but top result of the day went to Mike and Colin winning their match 8 and 7.
At 5 nil up I thought that we going to achieve a resounding white wash but Phil and Chris ran into two in form Rushmore players who beat them 3 and 2.
The Rushmore team were gracious and sporting in defeat and everyone enjoyed the meal and banter after the match.
A great Team performance and a fine result. Lets hope we can repeat the result at Rushmore in August. Many thanks to everyone who played and supported our Seniors Section on the day.
