Match Report North Wales Seniors v Shropshire & Herefordshire Seniors

Prestatyn Golf Club Tuesday 31st July 2018

North Wales Seniors hosted our annual fixture against Shropshire and Herefordshire Seniors at Prestatyn Golf Club. As this was our last fixture of the season, with one loss against Cheshire in May and a victory against Staffordshire in June our team wanted to finish with a winning season, we were aware that both the opposition and the course would provide a tough but fair test during the day. As we commenced our matches the weather was fine and the course was in excellent condition although a little soft under foot following a weekend of unseasonable wet weather.

After the morning Greensomes matches there were NWCGA wins for the pairings of Martin Jones & Steve Neale 3/1, Kevin Sykes & Andrew Grace 2/1, Jonathan Tym & Dave Wright 1H & Ray Ledsham & Tim Davies 2H. The pairing of Adam Houston & Keith Miller halved their match.

During the afternoon matches the sun came out and the temperature warmed, and the wind blew a gale making the course very challenging, this didn’t prevent exciting close matches & great performances from players on both sides.

In the afternoon better ball matches there were NWCGA wins for the pairings of George Smith & Paul Johns 5/3 & Ray Ledsham & Tim Davies 3/2. The pairings of Martin Jones & Steve Neale, Jonathan Tym & Dave Wright halved their match. It was very pleasing to see that during the day each of the NWCGA pairings contributed points to the overall team score. The top performers for the NWCGA side who won both matches were Ray Ledsham & Tim Davies, Tim was making his debut for the NWCGA Seniors team – well done!

After an excellent evening meal, the officials of both Counties addressed the players and thanked each other for a very enjoyable day.

Final Result     NWCGA 10½ points    Shropshire & Herefordshire 7½ points.

On a personal note, I would again like to thank all the players who have taken time & made the effort to represent NWCGA Seniors team this year. It is encouraging to see so many new players coming through to represent the NWCGA Seniors team and I am sure that over the next few years we will continue to go from strength to strength.

Match Report North Wales Seniors v Cheshire Seniors

Wrexham Golf Club Thursday 10th May 2018

NWCGA seniors played Cheshire Seniors on Thursday 10th May at Wrexham Golf Club. The NWCGA seniors team were in a competitive mood following our narrow loss at Bromborough Golf Club last year.

The morning Greensomes matches were played in fine conditions and with the course was in excellent condition made for close matches.  As in last years match there was only one victory for the home pairing of Jonathan Tym and Dave Wright winning 3&2 and a half was achieved by George Smith and Kevin Sykes.

During the afternoon the weather warmed up as did our golf, but sadly we were unable to make inroads into the morning deficit as the six matches were halved three each with victories for the pairings of Chris Marsden and Allan Merrill winning by 1 hole, Jonathan Tym and Dave Wright again winning 3&2 and Huw Robertson and Ray Ledsham winning 4&3.

The top performers for the NWCGA on the day were the undefeated pairing of team Captain and Wrexham Captain Jonathan Tym and ex Wrexham member and debutant Dave Wright, very well done to  both.

Prior to the meal both sides observed a minutes silence as a mark of respect for ex NWCGA seniors player Arthur Jones following the recent sad and unexpected passing of his son John.

Although the result didn’t go the way we expected as the result in both the morning and afternoon matches was exactly the same as last years match everyone had a thoroughly enjoyable day and the welcome forwarded by Wrexham Golf Club was first class.

2016

NWCGA Seniors v Staffordshire

NWCGA seniors played Staffordshire seniors at Newcastle under Lyme on Wednesday 29th June 2016 & NWCGA seniors were leading 3½ points to 2½ points in the morning foursomes but the course was deemed unplayable. The matches were played on Wednesday 7th September to conclude the overall result, carrying the 3½ to 2½ into that day.

After a hard fought battle NWCGA Seniors eventually lost the match 7 points to 5 points.  However we had a lovely day with the weather being fabulous & we all made some good friends along the way. This was the only match we lost all year, which was very disappointing, however the standard of golf we played was outstanding.

NWCGA Seniors v Shropshire & Hereford

NWCGA seniors played Shropshire & Hereford on Wednesday 13th July 2016 at Maesdu GC.  A great day’s golf starting with the weather being very warm & the NWCGA team playing probably the best golf to date the reward being an overwhelming result of 16½ to 1½.

The 1st hole opens up with a par 3, Chris Marsden (NWCGA) opened his Greensomes round with a hole in one, holing his tee shot with a 9 iron.  Although Chris didn’t witness the ball going in the hole, he was soon made aware of his feat with the group on the 2nd tee shouting as the ball vanished down the hole.  Chris bought everyone a drink at the end of the day, which went down very well with both teams.  This concludes the 3 matches we had planned & we finished unbeaten in all 3 games with the best result defeating Cheshire who hadn’t lost up to that stage.

 NWCGA Seniors v Staffordshire

NWCGA seniors played Staffordshire seniors at Newcastle under Lyme on Wednesday 29th June 2016.  
A team of 12 players turned up for the match as arranged, and during heavy rain we played the morning Greensomes, at lunch NWCGA seniors were leading 3½ points to 2½ points, but the course was flooding, especially the greens rendering the course unplayable.  The head green keeper spoke to myself and the Captain of Staffordshire and explained that the course would remain closed for the rest of the day.  The decison was taken that we would return on September 6th & play out the remaining 4BBB matches to conclude the overall result, carrying the 3½ to 2½ into that day.  It was a very long trip to play for 2 greensome pairs, only 6 holes, and because of the greens they called their results a halve, however everyone was in good spirits and all look forward to the return, to which everyone on the day said that they would do.
