Ricky march on to Clapham Area final

Rickmansworth’s Clapham team have once again come up trumps in their latest match in this season’s NAPGC Clapham Common Shield.

On the hottest day of the year so far, Ricky played Wycombe Heights in the area semi final. The home team of Captain Jake Jacobson & Denis Curran, Graham Farmer & David Wills and Ian Mackie & Paul Roffe teed off at 8.30 and managed to compile a total of 109 points, a 3 point advantage over Wycombe’s 106. 

The away team of Ben Plumridge & Rob Camilleri, Dave Miles & Mick Rogers and Martin Bartlett & Leon Kelly teed off an hour later, so there was quite some some to wait before the scores filtered back to HQ. Would the home team’s 3 point lead be enough for the away team to hang on? Well out in match one, Ben & Rob did the damage with a superb 7-point win to set the blues on their way. The final score from Wycombe was a 4-point win for Ricky (111-107) giving an overall match result of Rickmansworth 220 – 213 Wycombe Heights. A great win, in sticky conditions! The match was played in great spirit, and new friends made. Ricky progress on to the area final where Haste Hill await.

Ricky v Wycombe Heights Clapham

Ladies v Wexham – Wednesday 26th June

The ladies played host to Wexham last week, but had another close defeat, once again losing by 1½ to 2½. In a repeat of our last match, 2 games were lost on the 18th green.

Men’s team results update

It’s been a very busy time of year for the Men’s team, so here’s a quick run down of the recent results.

NAPGC Clapham Common Shield

After overcoming Haste Hill in the first round, Ricky faced a good Little Hay team in the second round. Each home team won their respective matches, but it was Ricky who won by a greater aggregate, with a total score of 223-211 points. Onwards and upwards to the area semi-final, where a tie against Wycombe Heights awaits on Saturday 29th June.

Herts Friendly League

Recent results attached. Ricky’s first away match of the season saw the team narrowly defeated 200-196 points at Stevenage – always a tricky venue. Next up for the team is the return match v Stevenage at the fortress, on Saturday 13th July.

NAPGC Bourne-Vanneck Trophy

Rickmansworth entered 2 teams as usual in this 3-man team event. Congratulations go to Peter Bartlett, David Wills & Peter Maestas as their score of nett 227 strokes at the Little Hay qualifier on Saturday 1st June, managed to secure one of the 16 places at the national final, which this year is being held at the very good West Middlesex GC, on Saturday 6th July. Well done guys. Can you follow in the footsteps of the class of 2013? 

Men’s Club Friendlies

We play both Richmond Park and Meyrick Park in long standing friendly matches. On Saturday 15th June, the team headed to south west London to take on the Richmond guys. A good match was played, but at “half time” in the home & away fixture, Richmond lead by 4 matches to 2. This weekend, Saturday 22nd June, Rickmansworth welcomed Meyrick Park all the way from Bournemouth for the first leg of the “Meyricky Bowl” fixture. On a fine and sunny day, Ricky won 3½ – 1½.

Ladies v Haste Hill; Wednesday 22nd May

The ladies had a very close match away at Haste Hill, unfortunately losing by 1 ½ – 2 ½. Two of the games were only decided on the 18th hole.

Captain’s update – 7th May

After a good month in April, the men’s team have carried on our winning streak with another win in the Clapham Common competition, and enjoyed an excellent Captain’s away day at Stocks GC.

Captain’s away day at Stocks 3rd May.

An excellent turn our by the boys and we had a very enjoyable day on a beautiful course that we all liked to play on with the weather being on our side. 

Results as follows:-

1st  Graham Simon on 43 points 

2nd Peter Bartlett on 40 points 

Longest Drive: Ben Plumridge 

Nearest the pin: Danny Simmonds 

Blind pairs: Ben Plumridge & Graham Simon on 81 points 

Well done to everyone who took part.

 

Clapham Common competition 5th May – Rickmansworth v Little Hay

This was half the team at home and away.

Away team played well and was only down by 19 points with our home team winning by 31 points. It was nail biting waiting for our home team results as they played half an hour behind the away team. So Rickmansworth won by 12 points – a big well done to the whole team on the day. 

As a member of the team mentioned, “Another good result on Sunday. Our opposition made the mistake that many teams make. They put two low handicap golfers out together. You always get the best results by mixing a high and a low. Not enough shots for them to be able to have a few bad holes. Then once they start falling behind the pressure is on and they try too hard. Score another one up to Rickmansworth greens”.

We will know our opponents in the next round, as Haste Hill are playing Wycombe Heights this weekend coming.

WELL DONE AGAIN BOYS AND LOOK FORWARD TO SEEING YOU ALL THIS SATURDAY ON CLUB DAY.

 

Our next match is 1st June being the Bourne-Vanneck Qualifier. Team pick nearer the time.

Regards Jake

Ladies v Batchwood – Wednesday 24th April

The Ladies team played their first friendly match of the year last week, away at Batchwood.

The match should have been 4x 4BBB’s, but unfortunately Batchwood were unable to find 8 players. Therefore, we played 1 singles match & 2x 4 BBB’s & we managed a 2-1 win.

Lek Kongaunruan played in her first match, hopefully the 1st of many!

Captain’s update…

HFL update

NAPGC Clapham Common Shield

We have drawn Little Hay in the next round of the Clapham Common Shield competition, but we will not take it for granted that it will be that easy. Sunday 5th May is the chosen date due to fixtures from both sides and availability. I will be picking the team for this match by this weekend.

NAPGC Gordon Forster Bowl

Well done again to Ben Plumridge, Dave Miles, Peter Bartlett and Martin Bartlett on winning the area final of the NAPGC Gordon Forster Bowl (Winter pairs knockout), and now making it through to the national final, at CHERWELL EDGE GOLF CLUB – this Sunday 28th April 2019. Good luck!

Captain’s Away Day at Stocks G.C.
