Inter Club Match v Gosfield - Gainsborough - 3rd July 2019



Stoke By Nayland         6½    Gosfield Lakes GC      1½

Congratulations firstly goes to Steve Ling on his hole in one on the 3rd hole Gainsborough course. Roy, his playing partner said it looked in from the tee, hit to perfection, as it gentle rolled up to the hole and dropped in. Well done, and welcome to the hole in one club.

The match score 6 ½ to 1 ½   

Although the actual games were much closer than the score portrays.

Game 1. Ian (captain) and Tony. Tony claimed to have carried Ian for most of the match, winning 3 and 1 

Game 2. Myself and David played some great golf to go 4 up at the turn, then water got in the way and we were soon back to 2 up. But rallied to win 4 and 3.

Game 3 Ian and Ray always controlled the score and finished 4 and 3.

Game 4 Dave and Peter saw the game seesaw before coming home 3 and 2.

Game 5 Roger and Dave, this game was swaying back and forth and ended halved.

Game 6. Roy and Steve (Hole in one King) Rested their game on playing well on all the par 3s, except for the nearest the pin 9th. Eventually coming home 2 and 1.

Game 7. Brian and Dick (fresh from his month away in the sun). All 4 players played above their respectful handicaps, posting pars and birdies. This game balanced on a knife edge until the home team went 3 down with 3 to play. Another rally saw the score 1 down with one to play. Eventually losing 2 and 0.

Game 8. Allen and David brought the tail in, cool and calmly controlling the score - 2 and 1. 

Well done to all. A big thanks to all at the club for a great day. The sun shone, picturesque course, a tasty meal and fantastic friendly company all round.


Many thanks to Adrian Cherry on his reporting of today’s match.
