Rickmansworth v Stevenage HFL Home Match Report Sunday 9th September 2018

With part 1 of this 2-part weekend complete, the Sunday team knew this was a must win, especially when the Stevenage players told us before we started that they have won all their home matches and won one away match. 

As normal with this fixture there was some great banter between the players in the clubhouse before heading out to the 1st tee. With the Ricky team getting a look at the greens on Saturday we were confident we would bring the result home.

Again there was some great golf being played and the course was playing fantastic. Speaking with the other groups round the first part of the course each match was very tight. 

In my match there was only 2 in it at the turn in Ricky’s favour and after 13 holes was 1 behind. 

My Dad was my partner and we got it back on track on the last 5 holes and managed to bring in a 6 point lead with a 42-36 final result. 

The second pair of Ben Plumridge and Mick Rogers came in with a 9 point lead with a fantastic 45-36 final result. 

This meant we had a 15 point lead after 2 matches and were in a very strong position. 

The next 2 groups came in with Stevenage clawing some points back with a 42-44 and 42-43 final results. 

This left us with a 12 point lead with 1 group to come in. 

I was confident that the final pair of John Shamoon and Ian Mackie would not loose by 13 and they didn’t let me down with their match coming in a tie with a 40-40 final result meaning we won this match by 12 points and a 211-199 final result.

Our sweep was won by Ben Plumridge and Mick Rogers and they kindly put the winnings in my Charity pot.

This now means we have played all our matches in the league and have won 6 out of the 8 matches and have a positive points difference of +45 points. We scored 1619 points over the 8 matches meaning we averaged over 200 points per match.

After speaking with the other captains the only 2 matches left in the league are Little Hay v Stevenage on the 22nd September and Panshanger v Little Hay on the 29th September. 

As it stands the only team that can catch us is Stevenage. They would have to win their match at Little Hay by 23 points to win the league and 22 points to tie, so it is in the balance at this stage. Herts Friendly League results 2018

I would once again like to thank all the players who have shown support this season with putting their names forward to play in these matches.

Well done to the players in this match and all the players who have played throughout the season.

Rickmansworth v Panshanger HFL Home Match Report Saturday 8th September 2018

Going into this double header weekend of HFL matches at home and coming off the back of 2 away wins, the team knew that these were must win matches to keep up the hopes of the league.

With the pairs sorted, the teams headed out to the 1st tee with the course really looking good. The course did not disappoint, as the greens were superb and the result of the hollow tine and lower cutting really showed. Thank you to all the greenkeeping staff. 

This made tricky Ricky live up to its name, even so there was some great golf played but home advantage came through and we won this match 206-195.

Our sweep was won by myself and Peter Maestas with 44 points and the winnings went in my Charity pot.

Well done to all that played and thank you for the support.

Shendish Manor vs Rickmansworth Seniors

On a nice day in Apsley, the seniors went to Shendish Manor with the opposition keen to redress the 6-0 defeat at Ricky. The course was in good condition with the greens being pacey and pin placements tricky, maybe this should have made us feel at home, but it didn’t! Shendish ran out winners 5-1, with only Roy Prue and Clive Bennett stemming the tide, though Mike Mortlock and Bob Horton’s game went down to the last putt. 

Ivor Gould of Shendish Manor (and also of Ricky) made the presentation to Bob Horton, today’s senior captain of Rickmansworth, of the Four Clubs Trophy which had already been secured by a set of magnificent home victories!

Well done all of the seniors who took part in the Four Clubs trophy!

Rickmansworth v Little Hay HFL Away Match Report Sat 18th August 2018

After last weekend’s away win, the team knew if we could get another away win in this match we would be in a great position leaving us 2 home matches in September.

It was a cloudy and very windy day which is not what we have been used to this year, but this didn’t stop some great golf being played. The first 2 groups came in with 42 points each, but home advantage told in these matches with our opponents having 45 and 48 respectively, meaning we were 9 points down after 2 groups. I was still confident with the players we had to come in that we had a good chance to still get something out of the match. 

The 3rd group did not disappoint as they came in with 44 points to Little Hay’s 41, reducing the gap down to 6 points, and the 4th group again brought home the points with 42 points to 39 points. This left us needing 3 points for a draw and 4 for the win from the last group. With all the players in the clubhouse getting wind of the situation they were poised watching the last green. 

When the last group had confirmed their match result being 40 points to us and 36 points to Little Hay meaning we got the win for a 2nd weekend in a row by 1 point, 210-209.

A big well done to the team as for the 2nd weekend in a row we had all 5 groups with 40+ points away from home. Herts Friendly League fixtures & results 2018

Well done to Ben Plumridge and Rob Camilleri who won the sweep with 44 points and kindly donated their winnings to the Captain’s Charity.   

Thank you to all that played.

Ricky seniors away win at Haste Hill

Rickmansworth Seniors played their latest game of the season on Tuesday 14th August away at Haste Hill. The match kicked off at 9.00am in the sunshine after a welcoming hot drink. Our hosts had some concerns about their greens, which added to the days challenges, but a close competitive match ensued. 

The match got off to a good start as Clive Bennett impressed with 9 pars to support the stand in captain (Darryl Nunn) to a 2&1 victory. From there the two teams traded results to leave the score at 2½ points each with the final match still on the course. The spoils finally went to Rickmansworth as Steve Browning and Trevor Spencer came in with a 4&3 victory in that last match to leave a final score of 3½ to 2½.

So another impressive away win for our Seniors, well done.

Rickmansworth v Batchwood HFL Away Match Report Sat 11th August 2018

With a strong team we turned up knowing that with only 2 away matches left, an away win this week or next week at Little Hay was essential if we want to have a chance of winning the league.

A rest bite from the really hot weather was forecast and the conditions were perfect for golf, with a heavy downpour on Friday evening to soften the course a little bit.

As the round was going on I was getting whispers from the other groups that Rickmansworth were playing well. Rickmansworth took a 4 point lead after the first group returned, and a 6 point lead once the second group had come in. The third group came in played a close match but was down by 1 point, so Ricky still had a 5 point lead. The fourth group again had a close match but was down by 2 points meaning Ricky had a 3 point lead with 1 group to come in. There was a tense atmosphere in the clubhouse and when John and Stefan handed me their card with a disappointed look on their face I was starting to worry, but although they were down in the match they played a fantastic round and kept pace with the home pairing who posted 45 points and they managed to bring in 43 points meaning they were only down by 2 points which gave us a much deserved away win by 1 point and the final result being 205 Batchwood to 206 Rickmansworth.

John Shamoon and Stefan Kunka won our sweep with that 43 points in the last match and kindly donated their winnings to my charity.

Thank you to all that played

Rickmansworth v Panshanger HFL Away Match Report Sat 4th August 2018

This away HFL match is always a popular one as Panshanger is a great course and it didn’t disappoint.

Again it was a hot day with the sun out for the whole day, but I knew with the strength of the Ricky team the standard of golf would be high. 

We gave Panshanger a good run for their money on their home course but unfortunately we lost 195 to 204. 

Our sweep was won by myself and Rob Camilleri with a good away score of 42 points (even with this we managed to come in with a loss of 5 points in our pairings 42 to 47!).

Thanks again to all that played. HFL results 2018

Rickmansworth v Aylesbury – Saturday 21st July 2018 – Home Friendly

This match was the return fixture in this friendly match. With Rickmansworth having a 3½ to 2½ lead from the away match, I was confident that the team could get the minimum of 3 points needed to retain the trophy. With both myself and my Vice captain unavailable for this match, club President Dave Miles took the reigns for this match. I would like to say a thank you to Dave for doing this for me. From what I hear Ricky was in fantastic condition and the golf being played by both teams matched. Home advantage again really told with Rickmansworth winning 5 to 1 meaning an 8½ to 3½ overall result.

In the sweep the first group of Dave Miles and Ben Plumridge had the winning total with 49 points. I would like to say a big thank you to Dave and Ben as they both donated their winnings to my charity Bloodwise.

Thanks again for all the support.
