Orsett on a roll!
3-0 to the Orsett unlike Liverpool the other evening! All the teams representing the club at the weekend showed no signs of a let up and continued the winning ways we have come accustom to so far this year. Building on the success of the Leslie Wood and Thornton Cup victories, our teams clearly showed the benefit of being able to play all year round.
The ladies bronze team continued their good form with a 4-2 win away from home against Playgolf Colchester. Not only was it a convincing win but to travel to a foreign course and take the win must have made it all taste sweeter. Speaking of travel, according to Team Captain Ali Battle, a special mention must go to the long drive champion Sue Mason. She lived up to that long drive title. Sue managed to drive to Colchester via Harlow (with Tina Gregory) to further enhance her reputation but didn’t let it bother her and the team came home victorious, not via Harlow.
Ladies again, in the Daily Mail Foursomes. With a home draw the ladies returned a resounding 6 and 4 victory against a strong Romford team to progress with ease into the next round. Excellent golf from Karen Batch and Tina Gregory left their opponents with no opportunity to get back at them right from the start.
Last and by no means least the men’s Norman Plum (not the best name for a trophy) team were winners over Rochford 100. The format of half the team at home and half away proved successful at both ends with both winning 2-1 at their respective venues, with an overall 4-2 win. They progress with the guidance of Ray Bentley and we look forward to hearing who the next victims are.
Big congratulations to all the teams and good luck in the next rounds.
The ‘Joyes’ of winning….
It doesn`t happen too often but when it does, enjoy it. That’s Rob Percival’s plan. Having recently won the club’s Joyes Trophy, his son, Will, is having to listen to each and every shot at the dinner table. Now if ever someone needed an incentive to win a trophy….Will, it’s you!
Rob, a past Leslie Wood player, scored 40 points to win by two from Peter Tsoroulla and 3rd, Steve Jacobs. Nice playing “Perc”.
The shop is currently stocked with a vast array of items from traditional styles and trends to bold colours and prints.
At the weekend we offered an opportunity for shooting under your handicap in the May medal. Thank you for all those who took part in the challenge and congratulations to Mr George Wickens who produced a below handicap round to secure his second glove FREE! Great round George.
Also for those who recently used our promotion of a shoe trade in, many thanks too. As you can see from the picture these are just some of you who took full advantage of clearing out with the old, decrepit, leaking, odd fitting shoes and in with a clean, ideal fitting pair of shoes. Thanks to Richie who spent many a moment on shop floor measuring feet and getting close to the action so to speak.
