At 0500 hours in the morning they started their challenge to complete 72 holes of golf in one day and it couldn’t have gone much better. The rain held off and 12 hours and 8 minutes later they nailed the final hole and in doing so raised £1085.62p!!

World Handicap System makes CBL fairer – PRGC off to a great start!

Saturday 1st May CBL returned

The Chiltern Breakfast League kicked off last weekend with a team from Princess Risborough travelling to Richings Park near Ivor for our first fixture in 2 years.

On a bright but chilly morning the 6 four ball match play matches drove off from 9.30am, on a course that is over 6300 yards some 1000 yards longer than PR!

This was always going to be a tough challenge, though with a slope index of 128 we all benefitted from a shot or two.

It turned out to be a great match and we came away with a fantastic 3 all draw with our winning pairs Barry Woledge and Gavin Adams a brilliant 4 and 2, Alastair Wardrop and Pete Major a great 3 and 2, and Steve and Andy Wagerfield a great 2 up victory.

Unfortunately we could not get the extra half point for the match victory, but Neil Terry and Brian Sims, Dave Mackenzie and Jim Findlay, and Craig Whitworth and Steve Sargeant all had close loses.

This was a great start to the season played in great spirit, wonderful course and fine food and beverage after, all in COVID secure and safe environment.

We have two more matches coming up on the 5th and 12th of June at home to Richings Park and Stocks, which we are all looking forward to, then 3 more matches to complete this year’s program during the summer,

The competition rules cap players at a maximum of 19.6 HI, should anybody be interested in making themselves available for selection for matches then please get in touch with me.

All the best for the season
