MIXED V RADCLIFFE-ON-TRENT (HOME) SUNDAY 18TH JUNE 2017
Phew what a scorcher of a day it was, temperatures up to 30 degrees and very little wind. Brollies up and hats on to keep the sun off us, sun tan cream to stop the burning. Radcliffe had a very warm, literally, welcome by us all from Stoke Rochford. It was a great pleasure in having Club Captain Martin and his daughter Laura to join us in this match. Sadly Bob & Avis had to drop out due to Bob not being well, so only 5 teams went out.
Phillip and Christine decided to go out on their own first.
Jim & Mags McArthur v Ian & Val Peat won 3 & 2
Captain Martin & Laura Harvey v Eddie Fox & Carolynn Sulivan won 3 & 2
Alan & Janet Jessop v John & Susie Doran lost 3 & 2
David & Carol Hamilton v Fran & Hazel Ebling won 3 & 1
Brian & Jane White v Keith & Katie Danby won 2 & 1
Great win for Stoke 4 - 1
MIXED MATCH V THE NOTTINGHAMSHIRE SUNDAY 14th MAY 2017
A sunny day was a great start as we headed off to The Nottinghamshire for our 3rd Mixed Team Match. Sadly with only 5 pairs managing to turn up, The Nottinghamshire kindly had a pair that would make up our team of 6. With 2 teams heading off to the Championship Course and 3 to The Signature, kick off time was 12.30 on both courses.
Both causing a challenge for some of us, trees, bunkers and many more trees, and even more deeper bunkers, a great day was had by all. The hospitality was amazing.

MIXED MATCH v SOUTH KYME SUNDAY 9th APRIL 2017 (HOME)
Feeling rather nervous for our 1st Mixed Team match, hoping that everyone will turn up, that the meal booked was going to be enjoyed by all, the opposition was hoping the weather was going to be better than the hail, rain and lightning that they got 2 years ago, calling the match off and of course that we played well. With a huge sigh of relief all of the above was a huge success.
Just a point, Jim lost 20p on the 9th hole, so if anyone found it please be so kind as to hand it back, so that he can sleep and yes, he's Scottish!!!
The weather brought out the best in us:-
Jim & Mags McArthur v Ray & Lady Captain Sue Duncan won 3-2
Don & Dorne Werner v Paul & Sue Roberts won 2-1
Darrell Knight & Roni Proctor v Pete Zammit & Heather Dopierala lost 1 down
David & Carol Hamilton v Jody & Helen Kirchner won 5-3
Graham Manton & Jackie Witten v Geoff & Sue Annibal halved
Alan & Janet Jessop v Graeme & Lorna Cambell won 3-2
Brian & Jane White v Ian & Yvonne Prior won 1 up
GREAT 1st WIN 5 1/2 - 1 1/2
