STONEYGATE GOLF TEAM – MATCH V WITHAM HALL AWAY Friday 16th May 2014

Team: Ben W (Captain), Tom W, Oliver H, Spike M, Kipp A, Patrick G, Pip J and Will F.

The Stoneygate Golf team played their first match of the season away to Witham Hall on their own golf course on the playing fields. The evening was perfect for golf and the course looked immaculate with lots of out of bounds and water hazards in play.

The match consisted of four foursome games where a pair from Stoneygate played a pair from Witham Hall. Foursomes requires the players to play alternately to make a score on each hole and a modified stableford system was used to allocate points once the ball had been holed. A six = 1 point, a five = 2 points, a 4 = 3 points and so on.

The format made for a quick game and at the end all the scores were added together to make a team total.

The final result Stoneygate 70 points, Witham Hall 89 points making Witham Hall the winners. All credit however must go to the boys who performed admirably but more importantly play in the true spirit of golf and competition, well done.

Many thanks to Mr and Mrs Walters who came to support the team and their sons on a late Friday evening.
