Seniors Inter-club Matches
Wyboston Seniors (Home) vs Pavenham Seniors
Wednesday, 14th July
Six pairs from each club contested the match and unfortunately Wyboston lost 2 ½ to 3 ½ , closer than originally forecast because Pavenham are formidable golfers.
The weather was good, slightly breezy but warm, for a welcome change the breeze was coming from behind on the 8th, 17th and 18th. The course is slowly returning to it’s best but our relatively slow greens (compared to Pavenham greens) caused our visitors a lot of problems. The glove will be on the other hand when we visit Pavenham in September!
The lunch of Hunter Chicken etc proved a great success, with many players commenting on how enjoyable it was. The staff at Wyboston are currently looking after us well and it’s such a good feeling to get back to socialising before and after the golf. Long may it last.
This match was the first in my memory where we’ve not had a Wyboston lady playing in our team. I know there were reasons for this but ladies, you were sadly missed, your participation is a vital part of what makes Wyboston Seniors such an enjoyable place to be. Please keep an eye open for the match entry sheets, there are 3 on the notice board now for matches during August, please sign up

Wyboston Seniors win back the Lakes Trophy from Lakeside Lodge GC in a 5 1/2 to 1/2 victory. The weather was perfect and the course was in good condition. The Wyboston team did a great job not losing any of the games. The Lakes Trophy, missing one handle and the last engraving but nicely polished, was presented by Lakeside Captain John Riches to Acting Captain David Gough.
Wyboston Seniors (Home) vs Cainhoe Woods Seniors
Wednesday, 9th June 2021
What a lovely day, good company, fabulous weather (compared with Fridays washout at Chesfield Downs) and a team win.
Wyboston seniors entertained Cainhoe Woods today, with 8 pairs contesting the match and it was a pleasure to reacquaint with many old faces, several of the visitors were recent Wyboston players.
The Wyboston team was lead to a magnificent victory by our own ‘ Boudica’ , Anne Harrison, she led her ‘warriors’ to a magnificent 4 ½ to 3 ½ victory.
I would like to thank all those Wyboston staff that help to provide a very enjoyable lunch and also provided a very efficient bar service.
Please remember to enter the inter club matches that are currently on the notice board, don’t be afraid you’re not good enough, everyone is welcome.
Wyboston Seniors (Away) vs Chesfield Downs Seniors
Friday, 4th June 2021
Wyboston seniors took 7 pairs to Chesfield Downs today for our annual inter club friendly and didn’t it rain! From the start at 9.00am and throughout the day, it rained. Fortunately most players had some form of wet weather clothing with them but still it made for a miserable day, weatherwise.
The golf course was as usual, in very good condition, it was a pleasure to play on greens that were smooth and true. Chesfield Downs players showed the usual hospitality that we’ve come to expect and the meal following the golf was excellent.
The N.T.P. for Wyboston players was won by Ron Harris, closely contested by Ray Clark. The match was a tie at 3 ½ matches each, a fair result.
We entertain Chestfield Downs at Wyboston on Wednesday 28th July and it would be nice to offer the same number of pairs and hospitality for that match. Please keep an eye on the notice board for the entry sheet.
Please remember, that no matter how good or bad you may think you are, there is always a place for you in the team. That’s what the handicap system is all about, today there were players of all abilities playing. Put your name forward and have a fun day out.
