Men’s match report: Batchwood Home

The score from the away leg: Batchwood 234 points – Rickmansworth 207 points

Trailing by 27 points from the away match in March, we had it all to do for us to claw back the 27 point deficit. The team put in a great effort winning by 17 points but not enough to bring us a victory overall.

The scores on Saturday were some of the highest ever seen at Rickmansworth. The green keepers seemed to have adopted a scorched earth policy, where’s all the rough gone? This along with greens like puddings contributed to some outstanding scoring with the worst score for us being 44 points. Multiple major winner Dave Miles and Captain Mick Rogers took the sweep money with 50 points!

Well done to Batchwood to win the match overall. Judging by their scores they enjoyed the day, as well as the very nice food laid on by the fairway inn. Well done to our team, a great effort but unfortunately just not quite enough.

The score on the day was: Rickmansworth 273 points – Batchwood 256 points

The overall score for the 2 legged match was Rickmansworth 480 pts – Batchwood 490 points
