Seniors Inter-club Matches

Wyboston Seniors (Away) v Lakeside Golf Club
Tuesday, 4 May

On Tuesday 4th May, nine brave Wyboston golfers (plus three guest players from Lakeside) travelled to Lakeside Lodge to play against their seniors in the first inter club match of the year. The weather conditions were horrendous, a brisk breeze was a gross understatement, the very, very strong wind made proper golf impossible.

There were many positives to take from the day though, the golf course was, in general in very good condition despite the attentions of the local badgers. The hospitality shown by our hosts was as usual exceptional and the catering on offer was excellent, bacon roll, tea or coffee on arrival with chicken and chips following golf. Another positive was that the match was drawn, 3 wins each, therefore the result of our home match will determine which club holds the Lakes Cup for the coming 12 months.

There were as always a few funnies on the day. Ray reminiscing how on a previous visit, he’d lost the head of his driver on the 12th hole, it was never to be seem again. Two of their players thought it was an away match and travelled to Wyboston but they still made it back for their original tee time, all be it the last but one tee time.

The entry sheet for the home match is on the notice board, please put your name down, as we would like to put out a minimum of 7 pairs for that match. Please don’t think ‘my golfs not good enough’ there’s a whole cross section of abilities that play in these matches, an example being that yesterday the lady I played against played off a 40 handicap, needless to say I got ‘stuffed’.
