Ricky Seniors win at home to Batchwood

Mon June 25th 2018

The seniors completed a magnificent win over Batchwood on the hottest day of the year so far. This result puts us at the top of the 4 clubs league.

The 5½ to ½ result was well earned and two of the many highlights were the Geoff Bull and the late substitute Mike Mortlock pairing coming in at 6&4, and Steve Browning and Roger Jones who won 6&5.

In fact, so versatile are our team that after ensuring he had won his match, Roger Jones, rushed to Moor Park to put a tourniquet on a member of their green keeping staff who had cut himself badly after overturning a golf cart. Well done Roger or shall we call him ‘Nurse Nancy’ from now on?

Rickmansworth v Meyrick Park – Saturday 23rd June 2018 – Home Friendly

This match is always a popular one with the members and was the first in the two leg annual friendly match. The players turned up ready for the full English breakfast before heading out to the course. The course was in good condition and lived up to its ‘Tricky Ricky’ reputation.

There was great golf being played by both teams but home advantage really told with Rickmansworth winning 4½ to ½.

In the sweep, the second group of Dave Miles and Mick Rogers came in with 50 points and I thought that was easily going to win the money, but the third group of John Shamoon and Peter Maestas came in with an amazing score of 52 points! Well played to both pairs. 

The other 3 groups came in with a measly 44, 43 and 42 which another week could of won the money. 

I would like to say a big thank you to Peter and John as they both donated their winnings to my charity Bloodwise.

Thanks again for all the support.

Rickmansworth v Richmond – Saturday 16th June 2018 – Away Friendly

This away match was the first in the two leg annual friendly match. The team turned up with the sun shining but the wind blowing. The wind played a big part all day and the course was in good condition, but like everywhere, it was quite hard which lead to some unusual bounces. The greens were probably the best we have played on all year. 

All this lead to some great golf being played, but Rickmansworth unfortunately losing 1½ to 4½ but gives us something to work with back at Ricky.

We had two of the groups in the 40’s with Ben Plumridge and David Grace winning the sweep with 42 points.     

Thanks again for all the support.

Rickmansworth v Stevenage – Saturday 9th June 2018 – HFL

This was the first away HFL match of the season for Rickmansworth and coming off the back of 2 home wins, confidence was high.

Stevenage Golf Course looked in fantastic condition before the match started and it proved to be all the way round. The golf being played in the sun was again of a high standard but getting an away win is tough, and unfortunately we had our first HFL loss of the season with a 179-197 final result.

Our sweep was won by Dave Miles and Jonathan Radford with a fantastic away score of 41 points.

Thanks again to all that played. HFL fixture list 2018

Rickmansworth v Ruislip NAPGC Clapham Common Shield Match Report Sun 27th May 2018

With a bye in the first round, we drew Ruislip in the second round. This was going to be a hard draw as they have gone far in this competition the last few seasons.

Checking the weather forecast on Saturday it didn’t look good as thunder and lighting was forecast for Sunday morning. I was taking the home side and Jake was taking the away side. It turned out to be a very hot and muggy day. 

From both sides there was some really good golf being played which led to a tight finish with us being on the phone to the away team waiting for the last match to come in. Unfortunately though we didn’t quite have enough on this occasion and we lost 219-223. 

Thanks again for all the support in this match.

Rickmansworth v Aylesbury Friendly Away Match Report Sat 19th May 2018

With the Captain being away for this match the Vice Captain Jake Jacobson stepped in to run the match against Aylesbury.

It is another year that their course has survived the HS2 threat and everyone turned up ready for the full English Breakfast to start the day, which I am told was very good. The weather was just about perfect for playing golf and the results showed this, with all pairings scoring over 36 points on an away course. We had 2 groups in with a fantastic 46 points, Peter Bartlett and Peter Maestas were the first pair out of the 2 in the clubhouse but they were pipped on the back 9 by the last pair in Mick Rogers and David Wills.

All this great golf lead to Rickmansworth having a 3½ to 2½ lead going into the return fixture at Rickmansworth later in the year.

Thank you again to Jake for stepping in and all the players that played.

Seniors’ away victory

Ricky Seniors looked to consolidate their top position in the Four Clubs League on Monday 21st May with an away match against newcomers to the league Batchwood Hall. It looked to be a tough proposition with Batchwood fielding five players with handicaps of sixteen or less, while all but one of Ricky’s players’ handicaps were in the twenties. However the early results were encouraging with the first three groups home recording two wins and a half. The next two pairs lost, leaving a nervous wait on the outcome of the last match. We need not have worried as Darryl Nunn and Steve Browning came in with the best result of the day, a four and two win confirming an away win for Ricky by 3½ to 2½.

Seniors’ update…

Rickmansworth Seniors played their third match of the season on May 3rd away to Huntswood with some optimism having won there in 2017. However, the optimism was misplaced with Huntswood reversing the previous year’s result and winning 4½-1½. Leon Kelly and Roy Prue were Ricky’s face savers with a 3 and 2 win, while Allan Macdonald and Ian Brown chipped in with a half.

After two away matches Ricky Seniors returned home on May 8th for a friendly match against Oakland Park and a return to winning ways with a 4-2 victory. Ian Brown and Steve Browning were the star performers with a resounding 6 and 5 win.

On May 15th Ricky Seniors played a key match in the Four Clubs Cup at home to Shendish Manor, the cup holders. This was the second match for Ricky in this year’s competition, having beaten Little Hay. Darryl Nunn, playing in the first match, got Ricky off to a great start closing out a tight match with two pars on the difficult 15th and 16th. Roy Prue and Ian Brown followed up with the biggest win of the day by 5 and 4. The victories kept coming resulting in a 6-0 whitewash for Ricky, with Club Day winner Steve Browning and Vic Meakes winning with the last putt of their match.
