Friendly Match Report v Lakeside Lodge
March Golf Club v Lakeside Golf Club (Friday 5th April)
In the opening club friendly match of the golfing season, the team from March Golf Club entertained a good team from Lakeside Golf Club. The result was in the balance through to the very last match where the pair from Lakeside secured a narrow win on the seventeenth hole to win the match by two wins to one, with one match tied.
Unlike the strong winds of two weeks ago, the weather was much kinder and allowed for a better standard of golf on both sides. One pair from Lakeside (Jon Megahy and Barry Burroughs) completed the first nine holes in an amazing better ball score of 31 shots, four under par for the course.
Club Captain, Alan Jones, thanked both teams afterwards for a competitive match played in good spirit. He also thanked the Lakeside team for their generous donation to the March captain’s project for the year. Thanks were also extended to the March Golf Club team (Alan Jones & Mark Athow, Mick Russell & Danny Daniel, Garry Brinn & Chris Hodson, Derek Wisbey & Ray Pescud) for turning out to represent the club.
A bottle of wine was presented to the winner of ‘nearest the pin’ on the 160 yard par 3 15th hole. A magnificent shot to about 4 feet secured the prize for Adrian Moore from Lakeside. Pictured, both teams gathered at the 1st hole prior to teeing off.
