Seniors Anglian/Midland League  v Lincolnshire

Woodhall Spa August 29th 2019

A sunny and breezy day on a very difficult Bracken Course proved  tough indeed! The winners of the 6-Man event at Coxmoor brought their A team to play. This was going to be a big ask, however the team fought very well indeed, with a special mention to Dennis Mathers, who won his 4 some's in the morning and singles in the afternoon. Also a well done to Brendon Moss who had already played 2 rounds in the UKSGA event on the Bracken and Hotchkin coming 5th overall.

Unfortunately  we got off to our usual poor start in the morning foursomes resulting in a 4 1/2 - 1 1/2 deficit (a repeat of L&R at Milton) which was always going to prove difficult to recover from. This resulted in a loss in East Midlands League but a draw in the Anglian League, aided by a selection error by the Lincolnshire Captain .

I feel I should highlight the staff at Woodhall who were brilliant, nothing was too much trouble and they always had a smile even when when dealing with our more "picky" players! All golf clubs could learn a lot from their customer focused approach.

That concludes our league season with Cambridgeshire repeating our double of last year (they will meet Staffs in the Midlands play-off). We managed to retain second place in the Anglian League after this result, our Midlands League effort was not so good despite a memorable victory away at Notts.
