Henley Match 2020


Henley Match 2020

“ Henley paid us the great compliment of rearranging our match for the Danesfield Cup, usually played in April.  This was their only club match in 2020.  Their Captain had selected 4 pairs mainly with an aviation background, including some low-handicappers.  We were under new management this year as Basil Evans had handed over the reins to Jethro Tull.  But some things don’t change.  Although the match was all square after 7 holes, course knowledge prevailed on the homeward stretch and Henley deservedly retained the Danesfield Cup by a 3-1 margin.  Well done Nigel Dowdall & Rick Lipscomb for saving our blushes; they played well to beat 2 very good golfers.  The course was in excellent condition and the meal was much enjoyed.  Henley is one of our longest-standing fixtures but victories come rarely; the tally is now Won 9, Lost 32 and Drawn 5.   Maybe next year.”
