It was the greatest pleasure to welcome 7 couples from Cricket St. Thomas Golf Club for our long anticipated Mixed Friendly Match on Sunday 28th July 2019. It was an exceptionally busy day for the Club as we followed the Men’s Championship, slotting in happily behind them. The sun shone throughout, on our beautiful course, as we all set off with the usual high (and unrealistic) expectations! Sadly, the opposing captain’s pair’s expectations disappeared on the first hole with one ball lost and the other O.B.!!! Our visitors were very complimentary about the course, and found it challenging.
We had the usual amusing anecdotes about each match over our meal, a lot of very mixed fortunes!!
Long Sutton kept better on the Straight and Narrow and brought home a convincing 5/2 victory.
A huge thank you to the ground staff, bar staff and management for all their help in giving us a memorable day and special thanks to the chef and his team who gave us a delicious carvery to round it all off.
