MATCH REPORT:  BLANKNEY SENIORS v. BELTON PARK SENIORS.

 

 

April 4th  was the date of our first inter club match of the season.   On a dry cool day the match was played in excellent spirit, as usual with Belton Park, with 8 groups contesting a hard fought match.    

After the game we were treated to a very satisfying meal by our new Chef, John.    This was very well received by all who took part in the match.    

Our thanks must also go to Sarah and Tracy , and to Stan Poole and Jean Hardie for supplying the Half Way House.    

Finally we must also remember the efforts of John Hart and his team for their efforts on the course. This drew much favourable comment from the visitors.

 

It was good to get the season under way with a win.   Five and three to Blankney.

SENI0R CAPTAIN’S DRIVE-IN &, MATCH SENIOR CAPT. v. SEN. VICE- CAPTAIN

 

 

SENI0R  CAPTAIN’S DRIVE-IN &, MATCH SENIOR CAPT. v. SEN. VICE- CAPTAIN

 

 

 

    Thursday March 7th saw our Senior’s season start with the above event.  Seven groups braved the very high winds to battle out a closely fought match which ended in an honourable half,   3 1/2 to 3 ½.   Well done, and my thanks to everyone who turned out to support the event.    Special thanks are also due to Laura, Julian Peckham and Steve McGinty for serving the pre match refreshments.   These were very welcome!  My thanks also to Steve for measuring my ‘Drive’, although he didn’t need a very long tape measure !!   It was also very pleasing to have support from a number of members who were not playing in the match.  Thank you all.

 

    The winner of the guess the Drive Distance was Dave Jubbs, who guessed 129 yds.   Dave is a new member who has joined us this year from Carholme, so we hope he enjoys his bottle of wine !

 

     The invite sheet for the first home match against Belton Park is now on the Senior’s notice board.   Let’s hope we can raise 16 players for this game.

 

      Also we have had a number of volunteers for the Half Way house for home matches.    A few more would be very welcome.

 

Once again, my thanks to all who supported Thursday’s event and I wish you all a successful golfing year.
