Mixed Match Update 2017
Mixed v Rothley Park (away) Sunday 4 June 2017
On a day of sunshine and showers, some of which were quite heavy, unfortunately we suffered our worst defeat of the season 1 - 6. Rothley definitely had their A team out! One of our male players, no slouch, had his best round ever and still lost! We start our series of home matches soon so hopefully we should fare better. Many thanks to Ian and Gill Youngs who agreed to stand in late in the day and then were stood down because one of their opponents injured herself on Saturday! congratulations to Charlie Keane and Hayley Smith who were the 1.
Mixed v Beeston Fields Sunday 22 May 2017
The mixed team today visited Beeston Fields GC in Nottinghamshire. Excellent weather prevailed after the terrible weather over the last week. Home advantage was key, as is often the case in these matches, with Beeston running out 3.5 to 1.5 winners of the match.
The Mixed section have had mixed results so far. We lost at Radcliffe on Trent, 4 ½ to 3 ½, not bad for an away match. The game was enlivened by providing interest to a goose nesting in a tree who watched carefully as we all went past her.
The next match was at home against Charnwood which we won 5 ½ to 3 ½.
With Rushcliffe we played an AmAm. Rushcliffe had provided three players to make up Longcliffe’s numbers and inevitably the team made up of all Rushcliffe players won, with two teams level behind them, including Graham Roper playing with Sandra Roberts and David Gould playing with Irene Moody.
If any members are interested in playing Mixed Golf, men and women on their own or couples are welcome, please contact Lynne Morgan or Richard Walker.
Longcliffe Mixed v Charnwood Sunday 24 April 2017
The Longcliffe Mixed Team took on our closest neighbours Charnwood to start the new season. The matches were played in great spirits with many of the couples knowing each other and renewing 'old rivalries'. Debutants Dave Vosper and Rachel Miller won 4 and 3 and team captain Andy de Wet and Hayley Smith won 4 and 2, leading to an overall 5 - 3 victory to Longcliffe!!
