Tall Pines Away
Not a good blog this time we suffered a heavy defeat against Tall Pines away we lost 4 1/2 to 1/2.
The one shining light was the half we got from Martin and Nick. The food and hospitality was excellent as was the
course. Onwards and upwards.
A close game against Wells G. C. at the weekend 2 1/2 to 2 1/2 (6-81/2) we had a chance to snatch a win but unfortunately left the putt in the jaws of the hole. The food was excellent as usual thanks to all the staff. The coursewas good condition as per usual we all know the greens are not back to there best but they are getting there pretty quick.

Long Sutton Stags V Tall Pines - Sat. 23rd April
A very close match which ended 3-2 to us (8-6). The day started well with a full English breakfast which was excellent, coffee and tea. Thanks to the catering staff. Back to the match, all close games 2 matches going to the 18th green the other 2 won by us 2&1. Unfortunately myself and my partner who shall remain nameless (chris binding) lost3&2. The course was in excellent condition as per usual. The rivalry between the 2 clubs was warm and friendly. We look forward to visiting Tall Pines at the end of May.
Played Wells GC on Saturday 2nd April 2016.
Unfortunately team lost 3-2 which is not too bad as the points turn out to 8-6 in favour of Wells.
Course was in good nick for the time of year, and the food and hospitality was excellent.
A good start to our 2016 campaign. I do not want to mention the winners by name as it might, no it will, make them big headed.
As I said a decent start to the new season.
Onwards and upwards.
A Team Blog
A team vs Stockwood Vale
Another away game and another tough result – the team went down 4 – 1
Congratulations to Andy Moray and Nick Northey, their winning run from Taunton and Pickerage continued with a 3&2 win. Barry Harding and Wesley Allen lost narrowly on 18 – a good game with a great fight back!
Gary French and myself we’re involved in a titanic battle, the first 6 holes being won with a birdie, unfortunately we came out 2nd best and lost 2&1, Sean Bennett and Peter Burch lost 4 &3 as did Allan Pilkington and Rupert Edwards.
We now have 6 weeks off before the next challenge at Burnham and Berrow. Plenty of time for us to gets some much needed golf under our belts, build some confidence and for me to sharpen the pencil and get our strategy spot on.
A team match result 1
On a day of changeable weather a squad of 12 made the trip to Oake Manor for our first match of the new season.
The Oake course conditions weren't up to their usual high standards due to maintenance work that had been done.
Good golf was played by all groups but we weren't able to hole the putts that would gain us points.
Unfortunately the result didn't go our way and we lost 5-0.
Still we have a chance to redeem ourselves this weekend at Taunton and Pickerage.
