Seniors' Match report: v. Boston West 20.6.2019
On a fine day we visited Boston West, for the very last time, as the course closes at the end of July. This is very sad, because the course is in excellent condition and we were treated very well, as usual.
We were welcomed by Les Martin and his team, and met up with a lot of familiar faces. The meal was an excellent Carving Buffet with a choice of sweets afterwards, and also a very welcome Half Way House.
It is disappointing to think that we will not be playing golf there again. The result of the match was 3 ½ and 3 ½ . A very fair result.
We are still 3 players short for our Home match with Newark, next Thursday, June 27th. It would be good if we could put out a full side!

SENIORS' MATCH REPORT v. WOODHALL SPA
In spite of being able to only field six groups for this fixture, which wasn’t very popular with the opposition, we had a very good match with Woodhall Spa. The weather was excellent and the course was in very good condition. The fact that we were on preferred lies was a surprise to the visitors, as they thought the course was excellent. Thanks once again to John Hart and his team!
After the match everyone enjoyed the meal produced by our chef John. Thanks also to Sarah and Sue who looked after everyone in the Clubhouse and Dining room.
Thanks also to Janice and Nev Scott for the Half-way House. The second time this week that Janice has offered this service. Thank you Janice.
The match result was a very satisfying HALF. Thats seven matches without losing!!

SENIORS' MATCH REPORT: v. SEACROFT 30-5-2019
On another fine day, Blankney Seniors hosted Seacroft Seniors for our annual match. We managed to put out a full team of 16 players and some excellent golf was enjoyed by both teams. The course was in excellent condition and received praise from the Seacroft players, with thanks being given to John Hart and his team. Thanks were also given to the catering staff, especially Annie, who had to stand in for John our chef, who was on holiday. Also thank you to Joyce and Pat for the half way house.
The result of the match was a very satisfying win for Blankney, 5 & 3. A great result against a team like Seacroft! Well done all the players who supported the Club for this game.
The next match is against Woodhall Spa, at home on June 6th. But unfortunately we have only been able to raise 12 interested players, out of almost 140 seniors.

The match ended in an honourable half……… 3 – 3, so we are five matches into the season without losing. Well done to the Blankney teams.
