Match Report – March Golf Club v Old Nene Golf Club (Sunday 12th May)
CAGU Inter-Club Greensomes League – In the third club Greensomes League match of the golfing season, the team from March Golf Club entertained a good team from Old Nene Golf Club. Remarkably, all four matches were played off level handicaps with no shots given on either side. The closeness of the handicaps suggested that it might be a closely fought encounter and so it proved. The results in all the matches were in the balance through to the end, but the March players held firm over the last few holes to secure victory with three matches won and the final match ending all square. The match was played in glorious weather conditions which produced some good golf on both sides, with one pair from March playing the back nine in 37 shots and another in 39, both securing narrow wins in consequence.
Club Captain, Alan Jones, thanked both teams afterwards for a competitive match played in good spirit. Thanks were also extended to the March Golf Club team (Chris Elliott & Jon King, Alan Jones & Mark Athow, Danny Daniel & Derek Wisbey, Simon Moore & Brian Newstead) for turning out to represent the club.
A bottle of wine was presented to the winner of ‘nearest the pin’ on the 200 yard par 3 18th hole. A superb shot to about 18 inches secured the prize for Mark Armstrong from Old Nene.
