The Seniors’ last home match of the season was played on the dank opening day of September against Bushey Country Club. The 4-2 home win completed the double over Bushey CC and guaranteed Rickmansworth top spot in the newly-inaugurated 4 Clubs league. 2014 Senior’s fixtures

Vice Captain Danny Simmonds led the team in the late morning start at home to Aylesbury Park on Saturday 30th August. Trailing 1-5 after the trip to Buckinghamshire earlier in the year, Rickmansworth knew they were in for a tough challenge against a strong travelling side.
A sturdy breakfast start ensured the players were well fueled and as the match got underway the team needed some inspiration to reverse the away result. They didn’t have to wait long as Eric Pearce’s son, Kevin, hit his opening tee shot onto the first green and into the cup, bagging a hole-in-one. The long trip from Australia had been worth it. All the pairings scored well on the day, but it was Bernie White and Ian Mackie who top scored with 49 points as Rickmansworth pulled off a 5-1 victory. The overall match was drawn 6-6 but Rickmansworth retain the annual trophy. We wished our visitors better luck next time and a safe journey home as we prepare for our final two matches in the Herts Friendly League.
