The charity benefiting from the day will be Macmillan Cancer Support.
Please let Sherril Bryden know if you would like to play or sign up on the main noticeboard.
Ricky Seniors visited Huntswood for their fifth match of the season on May 5th under the leadership of Martin Holden. While Martin pulled off a 3&1 win and modestly admitted that his inspirational leadership enabled the rest of the team to come away with a very creditable draw 3-3.
The Seniors narrowly avoided an organisational disaster on May 9th for their sixth match of the season against Haste Hill; each team thought they were playing an away match. Luckily the confusion came to light a few days before the match and thanks to the co-operation of the pro-shop and Fairway Inn we were able to stage the match and feed the visitors at Ricky. Bob Horton captained the team. Martin Holden and his partner John Murphy starred, chalking up a comprehensive 7 and 5 victory – no mean performance against a pair containing a player who managed to drive both the 14th and 18th greens. Unfortunately Martin and John’s feat could not be emulated by the rest of the team and Ricky lost the match 2½-3½.
2016 Captains Graham Farmer and Sherril Bryden took to the 1st tee on Saturday afternoon to officially ‘drive in’ up the famous first hole. A big crowd gathered and cheered them on, fresh from playing in Club Day 2016.
Rickmansworth Seniors’ third match of the season was away to Batchwood Hall on 18th April. Despite two matches being decided on the 17th and another two on the 18th, Ricky couldn’t muster even a half so suffered a whitewash going down 0-6.
The Seniors’ second home match of the season on 26th April against Oakland Park offered an early chance to bounce back from the mauling in the previous match. Although traffic chaos caused long delays all players managed to get through and off not too late. Ricky’s reputation for trickiness was enhanced by the fickle weather varying from warm sunshine to bitter winds and even a brief snow shower. Confidence was restored – just, with a 3½-2½ win to Rickmansworth.
