Grafton Morrish Match Report 2014

David Turnbull (OFGS Hon Sec) writes: "Playing with St. Lawrence in the South East Regional qualifying round on Saturday, 10 May at Knole Park Golf Club, Sevenoaks, the team of Gavin Cowell, Charlie Plunkett, Rob Atton, Matt Stolls, John Wybar and new member, Will Poole, found the going very tough in most unseasonal weather of a strong wind and frequent spells of heavy rain.  Despite an excellent score of 23 points by Rob and Matt, the overall team score was disappointing and we finished at the lower end of the table, thus failing to qualify for the knock-out stages. 

The format of scratch foursomes off the back tees, on an even longer course than normal, is always quite a challenge even in easy conditions. Preparation for the event was not helped by the fact that some members of the team were delayed in traffic for nearly an hour near the Dartford Crossing. It is hoped that a move to Gog Magog near Cambridge can be made in the not too distant future, but this depends on a vacancy becoming available. A move there would make sense logistically as the majority of our team come down from East Anglia."
