It was a pleasure to welcome Merley Park Golf Club, aka Flight Refuelling to Somerley this morning. As usual, Bob Austin brought a strong team. They fought hard, with three games again going to the 18th hole. Happily we came out on top in all of them, with the end result a 5-1 win to the home team!
*Star Player* – Chas Clark. Once again taking a match to the very last hole and emerging triumphant, no doubt ably assisted by Stormin’ Norman!
This was the last home friendly match of the season for the seniors… who are now primed and ready for the one that really counts… Seniors v Little Gems! A reminder that this grudge match is taking place this Saturday with a start time of 9.30am (not 8am as was suggested to me earlier today!).
Finally, a number of you will remember the rather biblical conditions we encountered at Canford School a few weeks ago, which caused the match to be abandoned after only a few holes. The good news is that Canford have invited us to try again. Hopefully we won’t need an Ark! Anyone wishing to play in this match on Wednesday 14th October at 9am, drop me an email.
