Seniors' Match Report Sleaford away

Monday 13th August, Blankney Seniors were away to Sleaford Seniors. The early games got away with a shower or two, the later games suffered some heavy downpours. This possibly affected the agreed result of a couple of halved games. The course was dry, as expected, the greens were immaculate. John Wood got nearest the pin in two for Blankney and won a 4 ball at Sleaford for his accuracy. The match finished 4 – 4, an excellent away result for Blankney. I have to mention that the Senior Captain’s partner, Bob Manser played par golf for 12 holes and underscored that with an eagle 3 at the par 5 eighth hole. I have learned that the art of Captaincy is to pick a good partner.

Seniors' Match Report v Boston Seniors at Home

Thursday July 26th .    

A very hot day!    Two teams met in a well fought match.   Fortunately everyone got round our well maintained course and enjoyed an excellent meal afterwards.   Much praise was given to our green staff for their work in these arid conditions, and also to the catering staff including Sarah behind the bar!   Thanks to the members who turned out to support the Seniors at the last moment.   It amazes me that out of all the listed seniors, we have trouble in raising a team of twelve to support the club.

But never mind, the diehards managed to beat Boston by 5 games to 1!  Well done everyone.

Seniors Match Report v Belton Woods Seniors Away

Another hot day, very tiring. The course (Woodside) was good with well-watered greens. The match result was Blankney 2 Belton Woods 6. This brought an end to a recent good run of results, but was a little better than last year’s fixture, which was 1 - 7

Seniors Match Report Newark Away

Lovely day for golf, a little cooler than of late, but very pleasant. The Newark course was in excellent condition,  dry spell considered. Blankney did not quite manage the double, having won the home fixture, but we did get a hard earned 4 – 4.
