Seniors v Notts at Worcester G&CC 27.4.17

Seniors v Notts at Worcester G&CC  27.4.17

On a mainly fine day, interspersed with squally showers, the County Seniors enjoyed the quality of Worcester G&CC's superbly presented fairways and greens. The recent dry weather meant that accurate, well judged approach shots were needed allowing for a fair amount of run. 

There were a number of new faces on the Notts Seniors team this year whilst the Worcs County drew upon tried and tested players, who performed extremely well in the greensomes and led by 4 1/2 to 1 1/2 at lunch. The four balls were a much closer affair but solid wins from Thompson & Bristow and Martin & Carpenter were followed up with halved matches from O'Donnell & Wainwright and Rose & Craddock, all of whom managed to secure the overall match victory, 10 1/2 to 7 1/2. 

Grenville Rose, the new County President, captained the side in the absence of Pete Adams and was full of praise for the camaraderie demonstrated by the two teams as well as for how well the course had been presented and the excellent levels of hospitality shown to everyone by the catering / bar staff. The club had even produced a special 'match menu' for this fixture, which also provided an interesting insight into the history of the club for the Nottinghamshire visitors. They were all extremely impressed.

Thank you to Worcester G&CC for their excellent support for this County fixture and to the Club Captain, Sam Woodward, for attending the post match meal.
