Captain’s Half Year Update

Captain’s day 2017:

Firstly, it was fantastic to see so many of the members out for Captain’s day, you really made the day positively fantastic, so pat yourselves on the back as we also raised £546.60 for Cancer Research UK. So a BIG, BIG, thank you to all who very generously gave up your time, and cash, to make the day a great success. I would also like to say a special thank you to Steve Milligan who setup the Active Leader Board for the day, which made scoring simple and in real time.

Friendly Matches:

We are now starting to play the second round of our friendly matches with Meyrick Park, Aylesbury Park and Richmond Park. Unfortunately we have had to postpone the return match v Meyrick Park, this match will now be played when the date has been re-arranged. We are about to play Aylesbury Park, maybe for the last time as HS2 will be digging up their golf course in the not too distant future. Rickmansworth is doing well in these competitions and with your support we will be victorious.

Herts Friendly League Matches:

The Herts Friendly League is also rolling into the second half of the season and Rickmansworth will be hosting several clubs over the next 5 weeks, so we have a very busy July and early August. I hope that the excellent support I have had so far this year, will continue over this 5 week busy period and beyond, so we can complete a very hectic schedule over these next few weeks. You can check the Rickmansworth league results by visiting the Little Hay Golf Club pages and clicking on the “Herts Friendly League” button at the bottom left of the page.

NAPGC Hawtree Match:

This was the first of the NAPGC matches, which is a Mixed Greensomes Stableford competition and this year it was played away at Haste Hill Golf Club. Unfortunately this year we did not go through to the next round but we will be back next year to perhaps go further in this competition.

NAPGC Bourne-Vanneck Shield and Cup:

This is a Men’s Club Team Championship match, Rickmansworth fielded an A team (low handicaps) and a B team (mid Handicaps). The A team was doing well but got pipped at the last and finished fourth, which is a very good result considering there was a high standard of competition. Ricky can also take away the feel good factor of posting the lowest nett round of the day out of all competitors. So, once again, we will be back next year to try again.

NAPGC Clapham Common Platinum Shield and Ellis Cup 2017:

Rickmansworth was victorious over Farnham Park which has given us an additional challenge of organising the next match v Ruislip within the required time scales of 23rd of July. We now have a good team for this match, and while it will be very challenging, we hope to come through and progress to the next round.

Captains Note:

Seems that this year is flying past and no sooner did my Captaincy start, it is now in the second half of the season. I have had great support from all the players so far this year, so a big thank you from the Captain for your time and some excellent scoring in the Club Matches. I am also very glad to see that we are getting quite a few new members and I hope that they will enjoy the club, the competitions, and the comradeship that I have since I joined in 2012, I think, the time has gone so quickly. Lastly, I wish you all a very good second half of the golfing season and hope to see you on the course, or at the Fairway Inn for a chat and a coffee.

Rickmansworth v Stevenage Match Report – played on 15-July-2017

Having played Stevenage away not so long ago, and with a small margin loss at the away venue, Rickmansworth were confident that we could do well at home. With a slightly dampening sky, we teed off with high expectations. Rickmansworth lost the first match by 3 points, against very good competition from the Stevenage Captain and his partner, however when the other matches started to come in, it was clear that Rickmansworth were going to be victorious. In the end Rickmansworth won by 25 points with scores of 227 to Rickmansworth and 202 to Stevenage. There were some very high scores on the day, and with a score of 48 points for Martin Bartlett and Archie Ahmed, it was looking good for winning the sweep. However, our last match, Mick Rogers and Peter Bartlett rolled in with a score of 49 points and took the sweep win by a single point. Well done to all the teams for their high scores and winning on home ground, and once again a big thanks to all for your excellent support.

Men’s home friendly match v Meyrick Park re-arranged

The Captain has advised that the home friendly match v Meyrick Park has been re-arranged for Saturday 7th October, tee off 11am.

HFL Match v Stevenage played on the 10-Jun-2017

The Captain and Vice-Captain were not available for this match, so a big thank you to Graham Farmer who captained the team on the day. When the matches were tallied up, Rickmansworth had 180 points and Stevenage had 188 points, so a loss to Stevenage by a mere 8 points. As it was an away match, it was still a very good performance for the Rickmansworth players. The sweep was won by Graham Farmer and Mick Rogers with a total of 41 points, well done gents. Now we look forward to the return match at Rickmansworth, where we hope to reverse the results by a far larger margin.

Friendly Match v Richmond Park played on the 17-Jun-2017

The third of our friendly matches was played at Richmond Park on an extremely hot and sunny Saturday. After one of our 12 suffered an injury on Friday morning, it was only 11 of us who teed off to see if Rickmansworth can retain the trophy in 2017. The first score in was a half, which is not a bad start for an away match. Once the scores started to come, it was clear that we will have to defend well at fortress Rickmansworth on the return leg. The score in the end was 4½ to 1½ with 3 losses and 3 halved matches. The sweep was won by Peter Bartlett and Graham Simon with an excellent score of 44 points. Thanks again to all the players for your support, without you these matches would not be possible.
