Report from Boys Under 16 Manager Tony Pohlman:
On Wednesday October 30th the annual match of the Stags versus the Bucks took place on a bright but cold day at Chesfield Downs G&CC, hosted by the Society of Hertfordshire Golf Captains, whose hospitality as usual was beyond reproach.
Junior Captain Oliver Bloxham and Society Captain Richard Blanchflower led the Stags into battle against the Bucks Junior Captain Caleb Farmer and his partner Brian Macdonald, scoring the first win of the day. The Bucks fought back and took the second match only to lose the next three matches but halved the next two and won the last match.
The final score was the Stags 5 to the Bucks 3.
The players retired to a welcome meal of chicken pie and apple crumble and on completion of the meal the Junior Captains thanked the Societies Captains for their hospitality and thanked the Societies Secretary Eric Diment for organizing the event. The Society Captains in turn congratulated the boys on their golf ability and etiquette on the course.
