SPALDING V BLANKNEY
MONDAY 4TH APRIL
This inter-club match has been introduced onto the schedule for the 2022 season.
It was the first match of the season
A distinct improvement to our fixture list.
Nobody who was involved in the fixture could remember Spalding being on the Blankney fixture list.
An excellent course with an hospitable and jovial match team.
Provided a great day of golfing enjoyment.
This is the only club that I know of that offers a three choice main and sweet post match meal.
With the exception of Seacroft GC.
Entry age for the Spalding senior section is 60.
They are a large section with 260 members.
Might be enough to have a waiting list!
Apparently visitors can view what is claimed to be the largest field in England.
It runs alongside the eighth hole [a par five] all the way into Spalding.
It is also wide.
But nobody knew of the actual square acres/hectares.
There was a nearest the pin competition upon the ninth hole [the one with the pond].
Robby Boyce won a bottle of red wine.
Match result: Spalding 4.5 Blankney 3.5
Ivor Samways [Captain]
Blankney Golf Club.
