Diary Event

The Highcliffe Team were in action this weekend in the 1st round of the Bridport Bowl against The Dorset Golf & Country Club. The course was in fine condition and with a warm sunny day, the team looking resplendent in there sponsored team shirts, expectations were high.

Paul Sadler and John Murphy led the troops out and after a hard competitive match landed the first win with a 2-1 victory.
2nd Team out consisted of our Vice Captain John Bentley alongside Adam Norris and had a tremendous battle coming from 3 down to complete a comfortable victory 4-2.
Our 3rd pairing is what we class as a “semi pro” (because he seems to play 7 days a week) Carlo Russell with the sometimes wayward Peter Jordan, today Peter’s driver was working and finished with a great 3-1 victory.
The only loss of our 5 matches where Ian (Thommo) Thompson & Tim Linbourn, losing 1-3, excuses such as they played their best pair, but I believe it was because Thommo couldn’t swing properly in his XL size team shirt which was a bit tight.
The last group which I had no doubt would provide a victory was Keith Boulter & Mike Hodgson who came in with an emphatic victory 4-3. Overall a winning start of 4-1, so a good start to a 3 Team League in round 1.

Our next match is vs Wareham at Wareham on 14th April 2019, anyone over age of 50 and a handicap 18 or less would like to be considered, then please advise the secretary or place your name on Notice board in the foyer.
