Seniors vs Temple 10th July 2018 at DG

Seniors will be seniors.  One Temple member went on holiday and forgot to check his emails so did not arrive, despite frantic phone-calls as to his whereabouts and safety.  And on the question of safety, never try to drive a 5ft 6in buggy under a 5ft branch of a tree.  The result was a canopy and windscreen destroyed,  a lucky escape for Alan Ravenhall who had just vacated the passenger seat and a bit of a shock for Mike Lewsey, the driver.  Seniors!!

The match itself was played on superb greens, and desert-like fairways, resulting in a win for Donnington Grove, 4½ to 1½, and over the 2 legs, 8 to 4.  We tried a 2 tee start from the 15th for 2 teams which proved to be successful.  Well done everybody.

Seniors vs Newbury & Crookham 28th June at DG

Our friendly match against Newbury & Crookham  was played under scorching conditions, with the fairways like rock, making the course altogether shorter if you could hit a straight ball and keep it on the fairway.  Despite the drought the greens were in superb condition, running straight and true.   The result was 2 halved, 2 won and 2 lost,  or 3 – 3.  We look forward to our return match on the 23rd August when jackets & ties will no longer be required!
