Despite a valiant effort by all our team, Royal Guernsey won the shield back by a comfortable margin. Nevertheless, the trip was a huge success, with both the weather and the friendship between our clubs being the real winner! Captain Alan
Good afternoon all,
As previously advised, our Scratch team, captained by Ollie Wright, reached the
final of the Goddard Cup which was played against Ely Golf Club at Saffron
Unfortunately, Captain Ollie was still suffering with a back injury and was unable
to take his place in the team but still played his part as chief supporter and
motivator, on his refreshment buggy throughout the day!
With lovely weather conditions and a course in excellent conditions, all was set
for a great contest and the morning foursomes did not disappoint with the four
matches evenly fought with Ramsey securing two wins and Ely two wins.
After lunch it was time for the eight singles matches. These provided some
excellent golf from both teams for the spectators but sadly, Ely just proved a little
too strong on the day, eventually running out comfortable winners.
Vice Captain Paul and myself just wanted to congratulate our players for a terrific
achievement in reaching the final, recording some great victories along the way
but, most importantly, representing our club in an exemplary manner displaying
great skill and sportsmanship throughout the competition!
Ollie assures me that, despite this disappointment, they will be back next year
giving it their best effort.
Well done guys and thank you for providing us with such a great effort!
Also, thanks to all those who turned up to support and/or caddy for the players. I
know the team appreciated it!
