Seniors come unstuck at Bowood Park

Published: 12th April 2014

Well ….. it was nice while it lasted, but the 100% record disappeared in the match at Bowood when the Seniors went down 6 – 2 on Wednesday 09 April.
The course at Lanteglos was beautifully presented and in fine condition from tee to green – some said that perhaps it is the best it has ever been. It is no criticism to note that the greens were somewhat slower that those at home, so that some of the old Saints had troubles reaching the hole with their putts. And that, combined with some excellent golf from the home players proved too much of a challenge. Indeed, one defeat inflicted the proverbial ‘dog licence,’ another even worse, whilst yet another prompted the old, ‘I’ve never seen him play like that before !‘ As ever, the hospitality and fellowship were second to none and the day was blessed with some rare sunshine too.
