Graham Stewart made a hole in one today at the par 3 13th hole. Unfortunately, it was the only positive part of his round with 5 of the 11 stableford points on the back 9 coming on that hole!
However, it was a superb shot which rolled into the hole on the much tougher top tier of the green. Well done Graham!
And all this came on the day when big Arsenal fan Graham then saw arch rivals Spurs get hit for 6 up at Manchester City! What a day.
This annual event brought out 28 members who all met in the club house for 7.30 am last Sunday. Bacon rolls and coffee were laid on as the draw was made out of the hat for teams. The format was individual stableford points all added up at the end.
The first four ball went out and after 18 holes just one point separated the teams. After five groups made it back, Roy’s Secretary’s team were in a slender lead until the sixth group came with a big win which ultimately was enough to win for the Captain’s team. Lunch was paid for by the losers who sat in one corner, while the Captain’s team sat down gloating about the win and tucking in to their free lunch.
A real fun morning’s golf enjoyed by everyone and well supported by the members.
Club Captain 2013
Apologies to all, here are the results in full of the Club’s recent European Tour to Mallorca:
Rickmansworth Golf Club, Mallorca Tour - Oct 12th-19th 2013
Rickmansworth v Little Hay, Sat 9th Nov 2013
In the final match of the season we came up against our friendly rivals Little Hay. We trailed by just one point from the away leg way back in May, so were confident in overturning this margin. A few last minute withdrawals left us with just ten players on the Friday night. Luckily we had two excellent replacements to come in; these people being Vikash Patel and veteran of the Club Alec Franks.
So Alec went out first with the Captain and carried him for the first nine playing great golf and the pair coming in with a respectable 39 points but losing to the first pair by 3 points. The next five pairs all won with scores in the mid 40′s to secure a victory on the day by 19 points. Once again it was Munir Ahmed and Ian Brown took the sweep money with an excellent 46 points.
Well done to all the Ricky players who throughout the season have performed so well, losing just one club match out of eight played this year. A fantastic effort. We now look forward to playing Little Hay next year but hopefully in the new Herts Friendly League which we hope to be joining.
So as it’s my last match as Captain, a big thanks to everyone. Your great enthusiasm and support has made this year a real pleasure to be your Captain.
