Match vs North Downs (Away) – 8th July 2024

With rain throughout the weekend it did not look that we would be playing our return match at North Downs, but 24 men arrived one by one and the match was on! There was some local floods on the course and bunkers but nothing that would stop us, not even the occasional shower throughout the morning! It was to be a great day of golf with our hosts keeping us informed of the hazards and…

Match vs Mitcham (Away) – 28th June 2024

A slightly later start to today’s match with our friends at Mitcham and again we had a full team. The course was in good condition and the weather was good for most of the day. The two gents Roger and I played against could not have been more helpful and passionate about golf and their club. Great company which was echoed by our whole team. Returning to the club house after 18 holes, we gathered…

Match vs Woldingham (Home) 20th May 2024

Riding on a bit of a high the Coulsdon Vets arrived with lots of time to spare and I actually saw some limbering up in the practice nets and putting green before joining our friends from Woldinghan for a coffee and Bacon Roll. After a short introduction from captain Simon there was a speedy exit to the first tee where the challenge started.  Woldingham looked in good shape and ready for a fight, but they…

Match vs Chipstead (Home) 17th May 2024

At last the sun came out for our match at home against our friends from Chipstead Golf Club. After much juggling from both clubs over the past month we managed to get 5 teams together and so the day started. Roger Wells took the helm as our other captain was sunning himself somewhere! It was a fantastic day for all and there was some extremely solid golf from both sides, and lots of friendly conversation.…

Match vs Shirley Park (away) 25th April 2024

This was our first ever match with our new friends at Shirley Park. During the initial negotiations both clubs laid out their requirements which is normal when feeling your way for the first time with a new club. Unusually we were asked if we could field an 18 man team. Closer to match time it seemed less and less possible but we all pulled together and managed 16 players, Reg playing for me (Mike), so…

Match Vs Wimbledon Ageless Golf Section 12th April 2024

We had a slightly later Tee than usual as rush hour travelling is a bit of a problem. However all work well and after a refreshing coffee and a bacon roll we rolled out to the first tee lead by the captains. Being on home ground was an advantage but unfortunate Wimbledon found their way and gained the upper hand with some very good golf. Although we lost the scores were incredible close and the…

Match with Coulsdon Ladies 25th March 24

The annual match with the Ladies was organised and run by the Ladies Section and was played a bit differently this year, but as usual, the fine trophy awaited the outcome of the winning section. Five matches were played with some dubious looking ladies on the ladies team, testing was not on hand so the competition went ahead. Thankfully, a strict dress code by the Ladies Captain was not enforced, despite the Vets Captain asking if he…
