On a glorious day (one of the few in August so far) the seniors enjoyed a fine victory over the visitors from the Isle of Wight. Cliff and John enjoyed a sporty win over their opponents, one of which left his hearing aid on the Isle! Mike and Dave scraped a half thanks to an amazing 720 degree lip out by the opposition on the 17th. A warm welcome to new member Ofer Ben-David (Ben), who won his opening match with Tom.
An excellent contest ended in a close home win against Mill Ride Seniors by 3.5 to 2.5. All matches were very tight until the last knockings and all parties seemed to have enjoyed this new fixture on what eventually turned out to be a great day for golf after both weather and home team player numbers improved dramatically from a dodgy start. A big thank you to Peter Drummond who was hauled off the course to start the match having already played nine holes.
Our redoubtable Seniors managed to defeat Sandford Springs by the closest of margins in their last home league match of the season. Four of the matches had a wafer thin of difference with Barry Lancaster and Dave Williams securing a valiant half in the last match to ensure that we won 3.5 to 2.5. Well done team – onwards and upwards!
In our first summer home friendly against Marlborough for a number of years, the Seniors lost only 1 game. All the others were won or halved. The final score was 4:2. Added to the 3:3 draw at their place meant that we also won overall.
It was a glorious day and we had an extremely friendly and enjoyable match. The visitors were very impressed with the condition and quality of the course and the delicious meal.
Well done all!
Our friends from over the water came to visit DG today and had a splendid time.
They were indeed, overcome with our great course, the great hospitality, the great food and service from our bar and restaurant staff and indeed the great weather!
They were also overcome by the quality of golf from our aged heroes, who ran out winners by 5 games to 1.
Well done team!
