It was a beautiful day when 24 ladies and men took on Fairways & Greens, low handicaps being paired with high handicaps. Each person could score an extra point for landing on the fairway on par 4s & 5s and an extra point for their approach shot landing and staying on the green. The usual queries ensued but out of it came an excellent suggestion from our former captain, Dave Lawson, to nominate your shot to the green. If we ever play it again we will adopt that suggestion.
So theoretically a pair playing to handicap could each get 36 Stableford points and 32 extra points (14 & 18) or 136 points between them. The closest to that score were Graeme Hartwell and Peter Drummond with a magnificent 105 points between them, closely followed by Gill Lane & Chris Tobin on 103. Well done everybody and thanks for turning out.
Our aged heroes completed their pool matches in the GJ Winter League today with a splendid 3-1 win against Sandford Springs.
There were some excellent performances from Mike Smith and Dave Williams, Ian Gaskell and Peter Drummond and Peter Darwin and Alan Clark. ( please note there is no mention for the captain!)
DG have played extremely well in this year’s campaign winning 5 out of their 6 matches and are odds on to get through to the final – so a very BIG thank you to ALL THE DG SENIORS who have played their part in a great team performance!
Well done team – Ed.
After 2 successive draws the Seniors had a good 3-1 win in the M4 league against a strong side from Goring and Streatley. Dave Lawson stepped in as Captain for the day with the usual accompanied success, thanks Dave.
This will be the last time we play them in the foreseeable future and I suspect they’ll be glad to see the back of us after we had the better of the four fixtures against them this year (two in the summer friendlies).
We now take a well-deserved rest till the next bout of fixtures which commence in January.
The Seniors welcomed The Springs today for a match in the M4 Winter League. The match was played with very good spirit and Springs played exceptionally well.
It was an honourable result that went down to the 18th on the last match but we tied 2:2.
Well done to the winning pairs Dave Lawson and Mike Lewsey, Steve Gridley and Andy Skelly.
4 more matches to go and all to play for!
Just when it was going so well…….
Our aged heroes welcomed M’boro today in the GJ Winter league and found out just what it was like to lose a match in this year’s competition.
It was a hard fought series of games with three out of four ending up as halved – two of which were salvaged by DG from being 4 down!
M’boro however triumphed in the last game to record a 2.5 to 1.5 which mirrored the away result.
Despite the result it was definitely a case of well played team – Ed
