Competition Result: Wyboston Seniors (Home) vs Colmworth Seniors. 17th August 2022

Interclub match played 17th August.

Before I went out today I said a silent prayer asking the good Lord to spare us from the rain and my prayer was answered.

The course is still as ‘dry as a chip’ but the greens are playing well thanks to the efforts of Lee and his team.

Wyboston were looking to avenge the 5 – 1 ‘hammering’ they received at Colmworth earlier in the season and ‘by heck’ they did just that. Wyboston won the day 5 ½ to ½  which included some big wins, once again on paper Colmworth were the stronger of the teams but as in previous matches Wyboston players rose to the challenge, congratulation team.

The N.T.P’s were won by John Day (CNB) on the 5th and John Harrison on the 13th .

Our next club match is on Monday 6th September away to Pavenham, currently this is very under subscribed, if you’re available please sign up. It’s unfortunate that this date clashes with the Ladies away weekend so a fewer number of ladies will be available. It’s time to step up to the mark gents.

Competition Result: Wyboston Seniors vs Brampton Seniors, 12th August 2022

Interclub match played 12th August 2022

Brampton Seniors v Wyboston Seniors is always a keenly fought match and today’s was no different. Unfortunately today, Wyboston lost 3 ½ to 2 ½ , not a disaster bearing in mind how difficult Brampton is as a golf course.

The weather was very hot and the fairways were ‘bone’ dry, the dryness of the fairways gave plenty of run on the ball but also made it difficult to judge distances but we all got safely round.

The 1st hole at Brampton must be one of the most testing on any course in the area. A narrow shot into the green, water (well, dried up ponds) surrounding the green and trees everywhere, a brutal start to your round.

It was also nice to meet our ‘old buddy’ Dave Cook, formally of Wyboston who now plays out of Brampton. Unfortunately he won his match!

Once again the hospitality shown to us today was first class as was the lunch of Lasagne (no peas)!

Our next match is a home match on Wednesday against Colmworth, the weather forecasters are suggesting rain early next week, please Lord, not on Wednesday!

Once again, thank you Wyboston team for playing and representing the Club on a truly scorching day.

Competition Result: Wyboston Seniors vs Mount Pleasant Seniors. 10th August 2022

Interclub match

Played 10th August 2022

There was a bit of emotion in todays match at Mount Pleasant as this was the last match between both clubs. For those that don’t know, Mount Pleasant golf course has been sold for residential development and will cease to exist from March 2024.

The new 18 hole course is made up of 2 distinct halves, the original  9 holes, with the odd change and the new 9. I know it’s been dry for what appears to be forever but the new holes are in an awful condition, no words can describe how bad this part of the course is. The sun shone today and at times it was incredibly hot and according to the forecast it’s going to be even hotter for our next match on Friday at Brampton, bring it on.

Despite the hot weather and the poor course conditions  Wyboston won the day 3 ½ to 2 ½, well done team.

Mount Pleasant’s hospitality is always first class and their catering is excellent and they excelled today in both. Please Wyboston catering look and learn.
