Captain’s Charity Day Saturday 30th June 2018

DSC_1106 DSC_1107 IMG-20180630-WA0008

When I put the sign up sheet on the notice board with 64 spots available I thought I was being optimistic, but having to add additional tee times I was overwhelmed with all the support shown.

The weather forecast was looking fantastic for the day, so the meet and greet was able to be set up outside. The first players started arriving around 7.30, and first tee time was 7.50.

I would like to say thank you to my wife Antonia for meeting all the players as they arrived, signing them in and explaining the order of the day and then helping me on the drinks buggy.

Thank you to our Lady Captain Mary Harris for encouraging people to buy raffle tickets as they signed in.

There were additional competitions on the day which consisted of nearest the pin on 1st, 7th, 13th and 17th holes, longest drive on the 6th hole and nearest the pin in 2, on the 18th hole.

I also ran an additional comp on hole 2a which was a nearest the pin. Players had the option to pay £2 to enter and had a chance of winning half the pot, with the other half going to my charity. I would like to say thank you to Joan McLaughlin for being out on hole 2a to run this competition for me. 

We had some great golf played with both the Men’s and Guest competitions being decided by count back and congratulations to B Arlow for making an eagle on the 14th hole.

The winners on the day were as follows:

Guest Winner: Will Rowan 40 Points 

Ladies’ Winner: B Arlow – 38 Points

Men’s Winner: Jason Hewitson – 42 Points

Men’s Second: Denis Curran – 42 Points   

Men’s Third: Paul Roffe – 41 Points

Nearest the pin 1st Hole: Rob Camilleri 

Nearest the pin 7th Hole: Denis Curran

Nearest the pin 13th Hole: Barbara Jones

Nearest the pin  17th Hole: Mary Harris

Nearest the pin in 2 18th Hole: Jason Hewitson

Longest Drive 6th Hole: Danny Simmonds

The winner of the 2a competition was Vic Meakes who kindly donated £20 of his winnings back to the charity.

A thank you goes to Alec Franks as he won the 4 ball voucher for Aylesbury Park in the raffle which he kindly put up for auction and thanks to David Grace managed to raise another £85 for the charity.

I would like to say the biggest thank you to everyone that played and supported me on this day, your generosity has meant so much and I am pleased to confirm that we managed to raise £800 on the day.

Thanks again,

Martin Bartlett, Club Captain 2018

Ricky Seniors win at home to Batchwood

Mon June 25th 2018

The seniors completed a magnificent win over Batchwood on the hottest day of the year so far. This result puts us at the top of the 4 clubs league.

The 5½ to ½ result was well earned and two of the many highlights were the Geoff Bull and the late substitute Mike Mortlock pairing coming in at 6&4, and Steve Browning and Roger Jones who won 6&5.

In fact, so versatile are our team that after ensuring he had won his match, Roger Jones, rushed to Moor Park to put a tourniquet on a member of their green keeping staff who had cut himself badly after overturning a golf cart. Well done Roger or shall we call him ‘Nurse Nancy’ from now on?

Rickmansworth v Meyrick Park – Saturday 23rd June 2018 – Home Friendly

This match is always a popular one with the members and was the first in the two leg annual friendly match. The players turned up ready for the full English breakfast before heading out to the course. The course was in good condition and lived up to its ‘Tricky Ricky’ reputation.

There was great golf being played by both teams but home advantage really told with Rickmansworth winning 4½ to ½.

In the sweep, the second group of Dave Miles and Mick Rogers came in with 50 points and I thought that was easily going to win the money, but the third group of John Shamoon and Peter Maestas came in with an amazing score of 52 points! Well played to both pairs. 

The other 3 groups came in with a measly 44, 43 and 42 which another week could of won the money. 

I would like to say a big thank you to Peter and John as they both donated their winnings to my charity Bloodwise.

Thanks again for all the support.

Rickmansworth v Richmond – Saturday 16th June 2018 – Away Friendly

This away match was the first in the two leg annual friendly match. The team turned up with the sun shining but the wind blowing. The wind played a big part all day and the course was in good condition, but like everywhere, it was quite hard which lead to some unusual bounces. The greens were probably the best we have played on all year. 

All this lead to some great golf being played, but Rickmansworth unfortunately losing 1½ to 4½ but gives us something to work with back at Ricky.

We had two of the groups in the 40’s with Ben Plumridge and David Grace winning the sweep with 42 points.     

Thanks again for all the support.

Rickmansworth v Stevenage – Saturday 9th June 2018 – HFL

This was the first away HFL match of the season for Rickmansworth and coming off the back of 2 home wins, confidence was high.

Stevenage Golf Course looked in fantastic condition before the match started and it proved to be all the way round. The golf being played in the sun was again of a high standard but getting an away win is tough, and unfortunately we had our first HFL loss of the season with a 179-197 final result.

Our sweep was won by Dave Miles and Jonathan Radford with a fantastic away score of 41 points.

Thanks again to all that played. HFL fixture list 2018

Rickmansworth v Ruislip NAPGC Clapham Common Shield Match Report Sun 27th May 2018

With a bye in the first round, we drew Ruislip in the second round. This was going to be a hard draw as they have gone far in this competition the last few seasons.

Checking the weather forecast on Saturday it didn’t look good as thunder and lighting was forecast for Sunday morning. I was taking the home side and Jake was taking the away side. It turned out to be a very hot and muggy day. 

From both sides there was some really good golf being played which led to a tight finish with us being on the phone to the away team waiting for the last match to come in. Unfortunately though we didn’t quite have enough on this occasion and we lost 219-223. 

Thanks again for all the support in this match.

Rickmansworth v Aylesbury Friendly Away Match Report Sat 19th May 2018

With the Captain being away for this match the Vice Captain Jake Jacobson stepped in to run the match against Aylesbury.

It is another year that their course has survived the HS2 threat and everyone turned up ready for the full English Breakfast to start the day, which I am told was very good. The weather was just about perfect for playing golf and the results showed this, with all pairings scoring over 36 points on an away course. We had 2 groups in with a fantastic 46 points, Peter Bartlett and Peter Maestas were the first pair out of the 2 in the clubhouse but they were pipped on the back 9 by the last pair in Mick Rogers and David Wills.

All this great golf lead to Rickmansworth having a 3½ to 2½ lead going into the return fixture at Rickmansworth later in the year.

Thank you again to Jake for stepping in and all the players that played.
