Seeing in the New Year in style.
130 members, guests and visitors enjoyed a fabulous New Year's Eve party at the club. We were greeted with a welcome glass of bubbly and the night continued in the same sparkling vein.
The meal was superb and extremly well served by the staff, and the band,Twisted Vinyl, kept the partygoers dancing up to and beyond midnight.
Many thanks to the management and staff for producing such a brilliant night. A special thank you to Rob and Sandra Ford for organising everything and everybody.
I'd like to wish Graham and Felicity, members, management and staff a very happy and hopefully drier New Year.
CLUB AND SECTION CAPTAINS JOHN, MANDY AND JON

A WONDERFUL CHRISTMAS
AND A VERY HAPPY GOLFING 2018.

Trounson Trophy Report
OH SO CLOSE!!!!
Wes Allen, John Parkinson, Tim Edwards and Henry Edwards represented Long Sutton in Sunday’s SGU Trounson Trophy, a team strokeplay event with best 3 of 4 nett scores to count. An early score of +12 for Oake Manor 1 looked as though it could be enough to win it in very difficult conditions until Wes came in with a magnificent 1 under par 71. Wes was closely followed by John Parkinson with a 3 over 74, meaning either Tim or Henry needed 10 over or better for Long Sutton to take a late lead. Tim struggled in the conditions and shot 13 over 85 but Henry battled on and came in with a 10 over 82 giving a best 3 score of +11. Other team scores were coming in but no one was challenging and we waited for the last 2 teams of Taunton & Pickeridge and Clevedon 1. T & P’s first 2 scores gave them 12 over and Clevedon’s first 2 were 18 over....still looking good. T & P’s next 2 scores gave them a best 3 score of +18, Clevedon’s next card gave them a score of +23. It was all looking good until the very last card was handed in…… level par. It meant that Clevedon’s worst score of +14 was dropped and they ended with + 9, pipping Long Sutton for the Trounson Trophy by 2 shots.
Our team still carried away the runners up prize, The Windwhistle Trophy, and nobody could match Wes’s score as he took the President’s Shield.
Massive congratulations to all 4 players, none of whom had played Clevedon before.
Seniors Bowl - first round win
Seniors Bowl first round
We were drawn against Wells for the first round, the team which beat us in the 2011 final, a tough opening match!
First up were Rich Bartin and Alan Webber. They were up against a pair who were receiving 5 shots. After 12 holes they were 3 down - not looking good.
Second out were John Parkinson and Mike Poole (unbeaten in last years campaign) also giving quite a few shots. They were never really in trouble and went on to win 3 and 1. Long Sutton 1 up
Third out were Martin Hawkins and Phil Bowditch, again giving shots, but went on to win very comfortably 4 and 2. 2 up.
Fourth out were Norm Banfield and Dick Butcher who were up against a very strong pair including the 2015 Seniors county champion. After a tight match the lost 2 and 1.
Last pair out were Graham Load and myself. Up against a strong pair (their 2011 winning captain) we went 3 up after 3 BUT.....after 12 holes they clawed their way back to only 1 down.
In the meantime Rich and Alan had squared their match, so all was in the balance! Onto extra holes and they unfortunately lost the 19th ( Rich please note you still owe Alan 4 balls)
Match all square.
Luckily I managed to find some putting form after Graham had put me in good positions and we won the next two holes to close out the match 3-2.
Well done team.
We now play Tickenham or Minehead in the next round
