Seniors v Northants County Monday 19 June 2017
The match was played in extremely hot weather conditions, with some players having to come off the course due to the heat. The course was in good condition, with the ball running well in the dry weather. Our visitors really appreciated the course and the meal afterwards, but we all appreciated getting back in the club house for a much needed cool drink. The match score was an honourable half, 4 matches each!!
