CAGU DEREK BURRIDGE Report v St Ives
Match Report – March Golf Club v St Ives Golf Club (Saturday 30th March)
CAGU Derek Burridge Knock-out
In the first round of the Cambridgeshire Area Golf Union Knock-out, the team from March Golf Club battled to a hard-earned win against a strong team from St Ives Golf Club. The match was a close encounter with three of the five matches going to the 18th green, and March winning by a score of 3 to 2.
Unlike two weeks ago, when the same two sides met in a CAGU League match, the weather was much kinder on both sides, with the standard of golf played reflecting the easier playing conditions.
Club Captain, Alan Jones, thanked both teams afterwards for a competitive match played in good spirit. He also thanked the members of the March team (Chris Elliott & Danny Daniel, Alan Jones & Ray Pescud, Mick Russell & Mark Athow, Simon Moore & Brian Newstead, Derek Wisbey & Roger Watts) for turning out to represent the club and for a very pleasing result.
A bottle of wine was presented to the winner of ‘nearest the pin’ on the 165 yard par 3 6th hole. A magnificent shot to about 12 feet secured the prize for Alan Jones from the home team.
