Please note that the Beaver Kaye Memorial Trophy will be re-scheduled to the weekend of 25/26 October, due to Rickmansworth’s involvement in the Herts Friendly League Needle Shield event at Batchwood.
Some people will go to any lengths to improve their handicap…Colin reckons the answer for him is new knees !!
…anyway the latest from his rehabilitation centre is as follows:-
”As some of you may know I had both my knees replaced on 2nd October. I am doing very well, only problem I had was at the pool – kept walking on it! I then told one of Mr Prue’s jokes and sank like a stone. They had had enough of me by Monday and sent me home. Sylvia had locked me out but I managed to get in through the bedroom window. Thanks for the two cards inscribed with love, hate and downright abuse, and, in spite of which……… I SHALL BE BACK !!! Missing you all ..CT
Rickmansworth Seniors completed their season on October 1st with a match against Haste Hill on neutral territory, South Buckinghamshire, looking to retain the Challenge Shield which Rickmansworth won last year after four consecutive defeats. Haste Hill, having won both the home and away matches earlier in the season completed the hat-trick with the best win of the three, 5½ to ½, so taking the Shield back into their possession.

Rickmansworth seniors completed their season’s home and away matches on 29th September with a rare away win, 4-2 at Chartridge Park. The result balances up the season nicely with seven wins, seven defeats and three tied matches. One fixture remains, the third match of the season against Haste Hill at a neutral course for the Haste Hill Shield, currently held by Rickmansworth. 2014 Senior’s fixture list
Rickmansworth Golf Club awoke last weekend to the sound of thunder, as lightning lit up the early morning darkness. Heavy rain beat down leaving the course with an early autumnal soaking and the possibility of the Captain’s Day event being a wash out. As 8 am approached, the rain eased and golfers arrived at the clubhouse preparing to take on the course and challenge for the prizes on offer. The first group went out hoping the last drizzle of rain would end and the greens would welcome a well aimed putt.
Home baked Captain cake was handed out between holes 3 and 9 as players made their way around the course hoping to pile up the points and give a good account of themselves. After completing the 18th hole, a bunker and two long putt challenges lay in wait and hopefully provided a lighthearted end to the competitive part of the day.
As players tucked into the light lunch and joked about all their bad luck, the points were tallied; the leader board revealed the scores. John Shamoon took first prize with 43 points, Graham Simon was second with 41 points just ahead of Colin Turfus in third on count back. The ladies prize was won by Joan McLaughlin with 27 points. Well done to the 4 nearest the pin winners and the winners of the long putt and bunker challenges.
The day raised just over £200 for the Captain’s charity and I’d like to thank all those who took part and contributed to making the day a success. Stefan Kunka, Captain 2014.
The Club congratulates Allan MacDonald on victory in the final of the Club Cup, one of the 4 major trophies members play for each summer. Allan faced Colin Taylor in the final, fresh from Colin’s Rabbits Cup win, and managed a narrow 1 hole victory.
