ENMORE ladies played well to achieve a good win against Orchardleigh at Wells GC and progress to the semi-final of the Rogers Cup.
The weather was kind with the threatening clouds holding off until all teams were in. Five matches went to the 18th hole with both sides playing well to achieve success.
To secure the team win, Jane Clist had to go up first again where she won which gave the team four wins to go to the semi-final.
The weather was fine when playing the friendly match against Mendip at Enmore. There was good golf played on both sides with brilliant putts and excellent chips to achieve birdies on the third and tenth holes. Enmore won 3.5-1.5.
Enmore Ladies were successful in the first Wessex match at Taunton and Pickeridge. The weather was perfect for the match with the sun shining and no wind, which made way for some very good golf on both sides. Three matches went to the 18th which provided challenges for both sides. Enmore Ladies won 10-6.
Enmore Park Seniors entertained their near rivals from Burnham and Berrow Seniors on one of this year’s brightest days; however, the outcome was far from bright for the home team as they went down 4½-1½. The only gains for Enmore were by the pairing of Mike Perry and last year’s captain Bob Burton who won, two up, while Keith Norcutt and John Newell gained the half point.
A similar result was seen in Enmore’s next fixture at The Mendip club. The match was played in a mixture of heavy rain and very low cloud high on the Mendip Hills course making for difficult play and the home team triumphed 6-2.
Enmore points were gained by the final two pairs of Mike Perry and Roger Anniss (2&1) and Jim Smith with David Auld (3&2). Enmore’s next fixtures will test the fitness of the “veterans” with back-to-back games at Long Sutton and Worlebury.
Enmore Park Seniors continued their busy playing schedule with consecutive games at Long Sutton and Worlebury. Alas, the travelling continued to take its toll as two heavy defeats were experienced.
At Long Sutton, the home team registered a 6-2 advantage with Enmore’s only points coming from the pairings of Ken Hunt with Jim Potticary and David Pascoe with Max Jameson, both by the margin of one up.
An even heavier reverse was the order of the day at Worlebury. Only captain Tony Pomeroy, aided no doubt by glorious views of his Welsh homeland across the Bristol Channel, but more so with a fine Seniors debut by George Cossey, were able to register a win by 2&1 to give the home team a 7-1 victory.
Cossey also won the nearest-the-pin prize. Enmore’s next fixture is at home to Windwhistle.
Results. Men’s Midweek Stableford: Division 1 – Tom Acland 44, Michael Lee 42, Richard Kippen 42; Division 2 – Lloyd Irish 41, Paraic Dwyer 41, John Taylor 40.
