SENIORS' MATCH REORTS FOR MATCHES V. SEACROFT, NEWARK, NORWOOD PARK & SLEAFORD

Seacroft v Blankney

Tuesday June 4th

 

Seacroft required six pairs for this fixture.

For a match upon a links course.

Nine holes out and nine holes back.

All on the sand based fairways.

Sun baked into long running ground.

And our only fixture that has a view of the sea.

Match result was a five to one loss.

 

 

Blankney v Newark

Thursday 23rd June.

 

A return to the excellent parkland of Blankney.

Plenty of sun

And plenty of run over the fairways.

Match result was a five to two win.

 

 

 

Norwood Park v Blankney

Wednesday 29th June

 

The second season of this fixture

Providing stunning views across the Nottinghamshire countryside.

With some holes in the deer park and orchards of Norwood Park.

Another course with plenty of run.

With greens built to USGA specifications.

Convex in shape and very fast.

No easy putts, or chip up to the flagstick to be found here.

What was to be found was an excellent barbeque.

Norwood Park 4 Blankney 2

 

 

Blankney v Sleaford

Monday 4th July

 

Started the match in cold and damp and finished in sunshine.

The Sleaford players liked the improvements to the clubhouse.

And were very appreciative of the course.

Also very appreciative of the post match salad.

However Blankney had some hefty wins.

Apparently of no concern to the visitors.

Blankney 6 Sleaford 2

 

At present we have won seven and lost six of the fixtures.

Most of the matches we have given plenty of shots.

So far the bulk of the fixtures have been at home.

Visits to other clubs are prevalent in the second half of the season
