Seniors' Match Report Blankney v Stoke Rochford AWAY

On a pleasant day, with a nice slight breeze, the match got underway. the course was good, the greens quite quick, and more undulating than most.
There were close games, and not so close games. The eventual outcome was a win for Stoke Rochford 7 - 1. We look forward to the return at Blankney in a couple of weeks.

Match report Boston West Seniors Away

Thursday June 22nd, Blankney Seniors visited Boston West for the return match. The weather was kind, not too hot, dry, breezy. The course is in good condition and the day was enjoyed by all.
The result was a win for Boston West by 4 1/2 to 3 1/2 (which means Blankney win on away goals on aggregate :) having won 5 3 at Blankney). This was a creditable result for Blankney Seniors as there was a no-show, leaving one player on his own.

Seniors Match report, 13th June at Seacroft

The match was played in most pleasant of conditions with a very light  breeze, to start with. The course was very hard which resulted in some strange  bounces and in places no grass.
The course is one that the tee shot requires local knowledge to find the  fairway, the greens were very fast and hard.
The meal, a buffet was excellent as it always is at Seacroft. the result a  win for Seacroft 6 and 2.

Seniors Match report 8th June, home v Woodhall Spa

The game was played in very blustery conditions and the rain stayed away  for most of the match, only arriving for some at the end.
The result was a win for Woodhall 6 matches to 2. However four games were  drawn which is better than we have achieved in the past
Wodhall’s captain was full of praise for the course and the meal. All  matches were played in good spirit, as is normal with the seniors

Tuesday 6th June 2017


Apologies to all of those players who struggled through eighteen holes today, those who had good scores and those who got a two.

However due to the extreme inclement weather later in the day, the competition had to be abandoned and therefor all results are null & void, including the 2s.

Please ignore any messages from HowdidIdo as they will have no effect on handicaps.


It has been decided after discussions with the Club Chairman and Club Manager that we will try and run the competition again later this year on Tuesday, 8th August. All entry fees will be carried forward to this new date.


Unfortunately, we already have an Away Day at Rufford Park on the Monday and Senior Captain’s Day on the Thursday of that week, but it is extremely difficult to find a spare date in the Club Calendar.

Seniors' Match Report v Seacroft at home

The game against Seacroft was played in excellent weather and the course  was as good as ever. The three tee start from my position on the course seemed  to work well, however there has been comments yet again on slow play. The meal  (salad) was to quote the visiting captain the best this year, and the result a  win for Blankney of 5 1/2 to 2 1/2.

Seniors email distribution list

Lady Captain has spoken of the value of an email distribution group for the dissemination of information directly, to supplement the upstairs notice board and the web notice board. They have found it particularly valuable in getting match teams together.
I am mindful of asking anyone to publish data on a notice board. My way next step, therefore is below;
If you would be happy to be included in such a distribution list (for use by Seniors Captain and Vice Captain), please email me at, indicating your willingness to be a part of it, and I will create a distribution list myself.
