Today was the second leg of the Match against Barton-on-Sea Golf Club welcoming our friends on a somewhat wet day.
As always played in a great spirit with good humour and sportmanship despite the conditions, although the course remains in excellent condition.
Ashley Wood held a 3.5-1.5 lead from the away leg and played a strong team. Although Barton on Sea were led by Pro Pete and his assistant John but came across a formidable pair in our Head Pro Paul Jones and Club Captain Steve Sanger who was the only person receiving any shots!
The home pair started strong with 2 birdies in the first 4 holes and continued this to win by 7&6
The next two groups were won by the Home Team both by 5&4, Barton won the 4th Match and then Jeffrey Morris and partner Eddy Narbett won the final match 4&3, to win 4-1 and therefore 7.5 to 2.5 over the two matches
Both teams then enjoyed a great 2 course meal once again provided by Lee and the team from Club House 1896
Photos included from the day including Pete from Barton on Sea handing over both trophies to Head Pro Paul Jones
A enjoyable 2 leg match in memory of Ashley Wood Member John Wood who was a great friend of Pete and hopefully this match will continue for years to come!
