An all-round team performance secured a first victory in the Herts Friendly League against a strong undefeated Stevenage team. All five pairs scoring 40 points or more and the club winning 220-212 points.
Club debutants John Shamoon and Graham Simon scored well but it was Chairman Dave Miles and Club Secretary Roy Prue who picked up the sweep with 49 points on the better ball format. Light rain with the threat of lightning had greeted the players, but as the clouds disappeared and temperatures soared to 28 degrees the match ended in bright sunshine. An away match in early August at Panshanger is our next league match.

The Ricky Seniors played Little Hay away on 17th July and in a close match which had two ties and two wins on the last hole, repeated the result of the home match a 3-3 tie. This result gives a 3 way tie at the top of the newly inaugurated 4-Clubs league. Ricky, Little Hay and Bushey CC each have 6 points but the advantage is with Ricky with two matches to play while Bushey CC have one remaining fixture at Rickmansworth and Little Hay have finished.
JULY NEWSLETTER – LADIES GOLF LETTER
June started with our match against Moor Park. We were over subscribed with ladies wanting to play and I am sorry we were not able to accommodate you all.
A sunny July 10th saw Ricky Seniors travel to Huntswood to try to avenge a home defeat inflicted three weeks earlier. Though Ricky’s performance improved, it was still not good enough to prevent a loss 2-4.
Rickmansworth Ladies v Batchwood Park 30th June 2014
Eight of our ladies played a match against Batchwood Golf Club. It was a beautiful day and we were the first team to be entertained in the new club house.
Rickmansworth Ladies entered two teams for the Herts County Ladies G.A. 9 Hole Competition at Chorleywood Golf Club. There were twenty teams of three from golf clubs around Hertfordshire from both private and public clubs.
The Ricky Seniors managed their 2nd friendly match win inside a week, with a home victory over Batchwood by 4½-1½. Martin Holden on behalf of, Frank Haines
