Captain’s Away Day 2013

Aldwickbury Alec Franks champagne Aldwickbury golfers Aldwickbury 1st & 2nd place 
This year’s away day was played at Aldwickbury Park Golf Club in Harpenden. We had an excellent turnout of 32 current and ex members of the Club including eleven ex Captains. Two players made long journeys to be with us for the day, Tony Hayes and David Scott, Club Captain in 1998. The course was a tough test with thick rough and very fast greens, apparently the fastest greens in Hertfordshire. The scores were very mixed with some really struggling on the greens. Congratulations to Gary Sippetts who won with 39 points closely followed by an excellent 38 points from Bernie White. The champagne moment was won by 84 year old Alec Franks who sunk a 40 foot putt for an excellent birdie on the par 3 seventh hole.
Thanks to all for supporting this day.

Ricky v Richmond Park GC Men’s friendly match

Twelve players went over to Richmond Park to play the first leg of this annual match. In very testing and windy conditions, with the rough up to waist height in places, we came away with the sores standing Richmond Park 3½ to Rickmansworth’s 2½.

Rickmansworth knocked out of the Clapham Common Shield

Rickmansworth were unfortunately knocked out of this competition going down by 17 points, playing Horsenden Hill. Our away team put in a good performance going down by ten shots in very windy conditions. The home team went down by seven shots, with one pair from Horsenden scoring a terrific 45 points in this greensomes format.

We wish Horsenden well in the next round and hope they get to the final. Thanks to all players who represented the club in this competition and hope we come fighting back next season.

new Bourne Vanneck 2013 Downshire Team photoRickmansworth has today had one of it’s most remarkable and memorable days of recent years in the annual NAPGC Bourne Vanneck Men’s Team Championships. We entered one team at the regional qualifier held at Downshire, near Bracknell and a second team at the Haste Hill qualifier. We were keen to repeat last year’s success in this event, when we reached the national final at Thornbury, but what was about to unfold turned out to be quite remarkable.
