St Enodoc Juniors star for Cornwall U-16’s win vs Devon

First and foremost, we want to thank the Cornwall Golf Union and St Enodoc Golf Club for hosting the event and providing excellent food and hospitality to both Devon and Cornwall players throughout the day. We would also like to thank St Enodoc, Steve Chapman, the Devon County U14 / U16 managers, and everyone who worked together to make this fixture possible at such short notice. And we would finally like to extend our thanks to the Devon players, parents and managers for making the trip to Cornwall, both teams were in great spirits and had a friendly but competitive game together.

As a result of the harsh winter weather, all of our golf courses across the county have suffered greatly. We would like to express our gratitude and understanding to St Austell Golf Club, with whom we had the original fixture, but the adverse weather conditions rendered the venue unplayable.

The weather conditions on match day proved to be of two halves. During the morning foursomes, we had persistent rain and moderate breeze. In the afternoon, the rain had given way to strong winds gusting to around 50 mph. Throughout the day, our county boys demonstrated resilience, strength, and determination in the face of the elements, as did a strong-spirited Devon County team. The course was in good condition and played well.

The foursomes pairings were Tommy and Heath, Tiernan and Joab, Alex and Archie and Jay and Sam.

In the morning foursomes Cornwall started off strong with all but the first group holding the lead on the 4th hole Tiernan and Joab 2up, Alex and Archie 1up, Jay and Sam also 1up. Catching up on the 8th hole Tommy and Heath were struggling to find their swing as they were 4 down, Tiernan and Joab were holding their lead and staying 1up, Alex and Archie was playing confidently and extending their lead to 3up, Jay and Sam the home boys doubling their lead to 2up. Moving on through the round the three leading groups became stronger and finishing the foursomes match with Tiernan and Joab winning on the 17th 3&2, Alex and Archie in control ending their match on the 13th by 7&5, Jay and Sam also with a confident finish on the 14th finishing 5&4, Tommy and Heath were having a real battle and brought the match down to the 17th, where the boys shook hands and the match ended 2&1 in Devon’s favour.

At the lunch break Cornwall held a 3 – 1 lead over our neighbours.

A change of kit was required after the mornings heavy rain and this was followed by lunch kindly put on by the catering team at St Enodoc. Then all were ready for the singles matches in the afternoon. As I was the starter in the afternoon matches, I caught up with the boys on the 6th hole Tommy AS, Tiernan 1up, Joab AS, Heath 2up Alex 1up, Archie 1down, Jay 3up, and Sam was 1down.

Moving on to the 12th the wind was getting stronger, but the boys seemed to embrace the conditions. Tommy 1up, Tiernan 2up, Joab AS, Heath 2up, Alex 2up, Archie 3up, Jay 2up and Sam 1 down, as the matches were coming to a close the conditions started to become really challenging with the winds gusting around 50mph but our boys marched on through the elements finishing with Tommy winning 2up, Tiernan winning 2&1, Joab winning 2&1, Heath winning 1up, Alex winning 3&2, Archie winning 5&4. Jay battled on through narrowly losing out on the 16th 3&2, and the final match with Sam Hanton coming from behind to going AS on the 17th and winning his match 1up on the 18th.

Cornwall had taken 7 of the 8 singles on offer and this meant an overall result of Cornwall 10 Devon 2. A super performance by the Duchy Boys!

Cornwall U16 Boys Team: Thomas Miller (Newquay), Tiernan Wallwork (Tehidy Park), Joab Atkins (Trethorne ), Alex Dawson (Perranporth), Archie Haynes (Carlyon Bay), Heath Gillespie (Newquay), Jay Dingle and Sam Hanton (both St Enodoc).

 

Cornwall U-14’s vs Devon U-14’s at St Enodoc

After the recent bad weather Cornwall and Devon Under 14s had a last minute change of venue from St Austell to St Enodoc and instead played their opening Jack Roberts League encounter on the Holywell Course. So a massive thanks to the club for allowing us to play. The course was presented in fantastic condition and the teams were well looked after during the day. The weather when the boys teed off was tough with the breeze getting up to 30-35 mph with rain and wind throughout the morning session.

With 9 holes played in the morning foursomes, it was the St Enodoc pairing of Alfie Chapman and Bobby Godfrey who got Cornwall off to a perfect start winning on the last with a birdie 2 having been 2 up with 3 to play. Next up was the newly formed pairing of Harry Gurd (Perranporth) and Harry Jolliff  (St Enodoc) who played well but unfortunately went down 3&2 to Harry Cann and Braydon Cotton. Harry Faull from St Mellion and Rory Hudson from West Cornwall lost 2&1 so it was down to our youngest pairing of Rory Julian (Falmouth) and Oli Hanton (St Enodoc) both making their under 14 debuts to try and make it 2-2 at lunch. They also lost 4&2 so it was all to play for in the afternoon to get a win in the first Jack Roberts league match of the season with Devon leading 3-1.

After a nice break for lunch and some dry clothes it was Harry Gurd who lead the team out for the 8 singles matches with Cornwall needing 5.5 points to get the win. Harry played great and won 4&2 against Harry Cann from Saunton. Alfie Chapman followed this up with a comprehensive win against Will Mulholland winning 5&4. A spirited comeback from Harry Faull in the 3rd match gaining a half point put Cornwall in a commanding position with 9 holes to play. Bobby Godfrey lost the 4th match 2 down after a great game with Archer Johnson. Harry Jolliff got Cornwall back in the driving seat with a great 3&2 win . Rory Julian in the 7th match was well up and won his game with Cyril Gosling. With Cornwall losing the last match (Oli Hanton) it was all down to Rory Hudson to try and find a win in the 6th match for Cornwall to gain a half point. With Rory up most of the way he eventually went down 3/1 to Braydon Cotton.

It was a great first match of the year and congratulations to Devon winning the match 6.5-5.5 and the boys have taken a lot from it. The squad have had some great coaching sessions
over the winter and come a long way and we look forward to the rest of the year. Bobby Godfrey was captain for the day and thanked St Enodoc Golf Club for their hospitality and
congratulated Devon on a fine win. Next match is against Wiltshire in June where we will be looking to get back on track with a win.

Trip Down Memory Lane!

Here’s some history for you, 2008 was the last time St Enodoc Juniors won this and the time before that was 1989, 1994 and 1995.

Who would’ve thought that the parents, above Kristian Godfrey and Steve Chapman who have won this before would now be supporting their children and watching them win and a father and Grandad, Keith Godfrey, has also been involved with the Bolitho Shield a “few” years ago. What great Memories for everyone.

Last Bolitho for St Enodoc Juniors and one both teams won’t forget!

above l to r: Alfie Chapman, Quinn Bateman, Daisy Lane, Liam Bateman and Bobby Godfrey.

Torrential rain and gale force winds, would be enough to put even the hardiest of golfers off, but unfortunately, our match had to be played!

Taking it all in their stride, these 5 hardy St Enodoc Juniors playing against Tehidy’s, 5 hardy Juniors, all teed off!

Tough tense matches and thinking we’d lost, until Quinn Bateman who had been 5 down after 6 and staring defeat in the face finding himself dormie 4 down, suddenly appeared on the 18th and sinking his putt to halve his match and to give the team a half result overall.

Fantastic comeback and a well deserved half for both teams.

Liam Bateman won 4&3

Alfie Chapman won 8&7

Bobby Godfrey lost 5&4

Daisy lost 2&1

Quinn halved on 18

We now wait for the other Clubs to play their matches to see if we have made the finals!
