Monday 15th October: Match v Silverstone Away

A rather wet and unpleasant Monday for our final match of the season. With the Captain away, vice-Captain David Musson led the team to a 4 - 2 defeat which is a good result on a tough course in poor conditions. 

Most matches were not decided until the last couple of holes and wins for Bill Keys/Mike Price and Roy Smith/Ian Walton made the score respectable. 

The day was enjoyed by all and the result still leaves us with an enviable overall record for the season.

Friday October 12th - Quiz night

A great night was enjoyed by 40 plus members and guests. The quiz was hosted very professionally by Laurie and Lynn Bryant with an excellent range of questions - just the ones to make everyone think "I know that - if only I could remember.......".

We had 44 players in 11 4-ball better ball matches under Seniors Captain Stuart Weston and Vets Captain John Duffin. There were some outstanding performances on both sides but the overall result was a win for the Seniors by 71/2 to 31/2. The series is now tied 2 - 2. Who cares? The weather was good, the food was good and an excellent day was enjoyed by all. On to next year!

This means we end the season once again unbeaten at home - well done to everyone who has contributed to this superb record.

Thursday 20th September : Match v Feldon Valley Away

Pretty miserable weather with wind and rain for the first time since very early this season. 

Unfortunately our golf matched the conditions and we ran out losers by 5 - 1. A great win for Pete Milton and Pete French by 3/2 proved the only bright spot. 

Great hosts and and very enjoyable hospitality in their newly refurbished facilities made the day seem much better and we can only do better next year.

Monday 17th September : Roll-up

An excellent turn-out this month with 41 players competing in a Texas Scramble in 11 3-ball and 2 4-ball teams.

Thursday 13th September: Match v Magnolia Park at Home

Good weather again as we welcomed Magnolia Park to Kirtlington. The greens have finally settled down after the autumn treatment and are now playing very well. There was some excellent golf played on both sides but again we ran out clear winners by 41/2 to 11/2. Wins for Weston/Twynam, Darch/Mackenzie, Shaw/Smith and Musson/Lodge with a half for Haynes/Roberts brought in the points.

Monday 10th September: Away Day at Wycombe Heights

Tuesday 4th September: Match v Studley Wood Away

Wow! A fine away win at one of the courses we usually find very difficult.

Wins for Stuart Weston/Gerry Shaw, Pete Milton/Roy Smith and David Musson/Clarrie Haynes and a half for Tony Bastable/Brian Palmer gave us an excellent 31/2 - 21/2 win. The course was in fine condition with greens like lightning but some fine golf was played to give us the results.

Tuesday 28th August: Match v Cherwell Edge at Home

Another fine home performance saw us back to winning ways by 5 - 1. Wins for Stuart Weston/Tony Whitlock, Jim Darch/Larry Blackwell, Pete Milton/Clarrie Haynes and Geoff Smailes/Roy Smith were supplemented by halves for Tony Bastable/Bill Brown and David Musson/Chris Mackenzie.

 The greens were already better than last week and, hopefully, will settle down quickly now after the weekend rain.

Thursday 23rd August: Team Competition

The team competition too place on this 'empty' Thursday during greens work week.

Teams of three, best two stableford scores to count on each hole. Best 15 holes to count.( allowing for any holes out of play due to greens work.)

Eight teams entered and enjoyed some good golf. All 18 greens were technically in play but putting was something of a lottery, to say the least.

Winners with a fine 77 points were Jim Darch/Peter Dunn/Peter Marsh, closely followed in second with 76 points by Tony Whitlock/Trevor Roberts/Rob James.

Monday 20th August: Match v Waterstock Away

Another good performance by the home players saw our spirited resistance crumble to the tune of a 51/2 - 1/2 loss. Stuart Weston/Geoff Smailes managed a half in a very closely contented Captain's match but that was the extent of our success. The course played well and the buffet was excellent as usual; we'll try again next year!

Tuesday 14th August: Match v Magnolia Park Away

Our excellent winning run was brought to an abrupt end on a much-improved Magnolia course. 

There were some very good performances and most of the matches went to the last couple of holes but, in general, the home players had the upper hand. A great win for Pat Twynam (returning to his former club) together with Laurie Bryant gave us our only point.

Seniors Veteran Championships (75 Years & Older)

In the inaugural Seniors Veterans championship (75 years old and over) 14 players took part.

In first place and winning the trophy was Phil Wigmore on 42 Points followed in 2nd place by Norman

Thursday 9th August: Match v Radley Away

Slightly cooler conditions for this one but thankfully the rain stayed away. 

The change in weather didn't affect the team performance as we played some excellent golf and ran out winners by 5 - 1. 

Wins for Gerry Shaw/Simon Saxton, Clarrie Haynes/Laurie Bryant, Mike Lisseter/Graham Ford and David Musson/Trevor Roberts were backed up by halves for Stuart Weston/Roy Smith and Geoff Smailes/Larry Blackwell to give us a great away win.

Monday 6th August: Match v Drayton Park at Home

Another very warm day with dry conditions saw some very good golf played. 

Once again, we managed to prevail against tough opposition and maintain our fine home record. 

Wins for Gerry Shaw/Larry Blackwell (dog licence!!), Geoff Smailes/Roy Smith and David Musson/Jim Darch plus a half for Stuart Weston/Clarrie Haynes in the Captain's match gave us a 31/2 - 21/2 victory.

Monday 30th July: Match v Waterstock at Home

Altered conditions today after the weekend rain and some tough pin positions from the weekend Open competition.

However, some good performances led to another good home win by 31/2 to 21/2
