Weekly news June 3rd


On Tuesday this week the Three Counties Golf Captains competed for the Herve Trophy. 48 players from Herts, Cambs and Essex enjoyed a full day’s golf. The Herts Captains were delighted to retain the Trophy.
The Ladies were also hosting other Clubs this week as they played their annual Triangular Match with Gog Magog and Letchworth Golf Club Ladies on Thursday. This team event has been a long-standing fixture but had lapsed until reinstated during the Ladies Centenary Year, back in 2007. It was Joan Buckerfield, the Centenary Ladies Captain, who set the ball rolling again and it has been a very popular match ever since. The ladies also played for the Bogey Cup this week with Kathy Musgrave returning to form to win with -1, over Jane Millership with -2.
Meanwhile in other regular games Dave Rowell came first in the Midweek Stableford with 40 points, followed by Pete Law with 38 on count back from Ken Griffin. In the Thursday Roll Up Trevor Sweeting won with 37 points over Sid Seward’s 36 on count back from Declan Shilton and Alan Lakey. The Saturday Swindle was won by Steve March with 42 points over Adam Mc Donnell’s 41. Then in the Medal and Centenary Qualifier on Sunday Alan Lakey came in with nett 64 over Lee Bonney’s nett 68 on count back. The Seniors match against Nazing away was lost 5 games to 1, with Peter Gillies and John Kelly the only pair to win.
Finally the Scratch teams have also been out this week. The Ladies played at Home against Ely City on Sunday whilst the Mens team played last Monday against Stevenage for the HG Team Cup. This was also at Home but they lost due to the ‘away advantage’.
There are many more golfing events in the coming weeks but look out for the Family Fun Day on Sunday 30th June. Bring the whole family to have a go at the mini golfing competitions and activities. Or just come along to enjoy the fun.
