8th Green – New Installation of Drainage and Pipe works

Please note that starting today there will be extensive works being done on the 8th green which  will be closed for the duration.
Hoping to be completed by Friday but possibly will extend to next weekend. A temporary green will be in play for the week.
Thank you for your patience but rest assured the works being done will help the longevity of the green and improve the drainage.

Needle Shield played at Bushey Country Club 14-Oct-2017

This year’s Needle Shield was played at Bushey Country Club, a 9 hole golf course, which made the start somewhat interesting. We all teed off from different holes; 1st, 3rd, 5th, 7th and 9th, with 2-3, 4 balls at each hole in a kind of shotgun start, but different. Three holes in, I was notified that one of our players had sustained a hand injury and could not continue with the match, so Rickmansworth were down to a team of 9 healthy players. When the scores were totted up at the end, it was clear that Ricky would not be winning the Needle Shield in 2017. We limped home with 266 points, but even with 9 players we did not finish last. The winners on the day were Bushey Country Club, with a very healthy points tally. The day finished with a very nice meal and of course a few drinks, for some to celebrate and others to commiserate. A big thank you to all the players, it was a long day and I very much appreciate you giving up your time and giving Rickmansworth Golf Club your fantastic support. There was no sweep on this occasion, but the Rickmansworth high scorer on the day was Mick Lee with 35 points.

Final results for the 2017 Needle Shield are below.

1) Bushey Country Club 356 points

2) Little Hay 293 points

3) Panshanger 285 points

4) Batchwood 274 points

5) Rickmansworth 266 points

6) Stevenage 264 points

HFL Rickmansworth v Bushey Away Match Report – played on 23-Sep-2017

The team gathered at Bushey Country Club for the second leg of our local derby, which is always a competitive affair. The weather was looking rather glum, but we were assured by the ever so accurate weather people, that it was to brighten up mid-morning. The gun went off, and we were away. The first match lost to Bushey by 1 point, match 2 was a draw, match 3 lost by 2 points and match 4 lost by a point. So far, all the matches were extremely close. At this stage Rickmansworth were only 4 points down and a good final round could swing the result in our favour. The final match of the day unfortunately lost to Bushey by 3 points, so it was a win to Bushey by 7 points. Final scores were Rickmansworth 187 points to Bushey’s 194 points. However, as we won at home by 14 points, the cup comes back to Rickmansworth as we won the aggregate by 7 points. The sweep was won by Mick Rogers and Dave Miles, again, with a healthy score of 41 points. Well done gentlemen, and once again a big thank you to all who played on the day.

Friendly Home Match v Richmond Park – played on 16-Sep-2017

This was the fifth of our 6 friendly matches and with a 4½ to 1½ deficit it was going to take a very good round from everyone to win the cup for the second consecutive year. Rickmansworth had a good team for this match and being on home ground gave us a small advantage. The first team came in with a win, which gave us a good start to the day. Teams 2, 3 and 4 also came in with wins and at this point the 4½ to 1½ deficit was reversed into a 1 point advantage. Our team 5 did not do so well however, so now we were all square with the aggregate score of 5½ to 5½. Once again, down to the last match to decide if the cup stays at Ricky, or goes to Richmond for the next 12 months. It turned out that the last match was not only down to the last hole, but the last putt, which was sunk from about 25 feet by the Rickmansworth duo, to clinch a very important point and give us a 6½ to 5½ win, and the match cup stays at Rickmansworth for another year. The sweep was won by Dave Miles and Mick Rogers with a healthy 44 points, on top of their excellent match win. Once again, a big thank you to all the players, as without your support these matches would not be possible.

Rickmansworth v Panshanger Home HFL Match Report – played on 09-Sep-2017

No mix up of venues this time, and after a short summer break, Rickmansworth were at home on the tricky course that usually brings us a win. Having said that, we took a real pasting when we went to Panshanger so the match was definitely not going to be an easy one. First match out lost by 5 points and it was looking like another difficult day on the golf course. Second match came in with a fantastic win by 12 points, so maybe the golfing gods would smile on Rickmansworth this day and we would come away with a win. Matches 3 and 4 were very tight and it was down to the last to either win, or not lose by too many points, for Rickmansworth to take the win. The final scores for the day were, 207 points to Rickmansworth and 199 points to Panshanger, so a very satisfying win for the Ricky Team. The sweep was won by match 2, Peter Bartlett and Bernie White with 47 points! Thanks again to all the players for their continued support.
