Sunday 4th February saw our CTC side face Tehidy Park Golf Club for a place in the final.
The morning foursomes started with a 2&1 win for Justin Barnard and Rob Macgregor over Louis Archer and Lewis Bradley. St Enodoc would respond however winning the next 3 foursomes matches, with Charlie Runnalls and George Tunbridge winning 5&4 over Chris Hoyle and Lee Chambers, shortly followed by a 5&3 win for Mike Masters and Joe Combellack over Adam Nottman and James Levick. Steve Chapman and Mark Justice would battle back from being 2 down on the 16th tee to win the game 1up against Richard Simmons and James Barnard. Our ninth man Steve Buse won his match 5&4 against Arron Wallace to finish off a great morning session for St Enodoc taking a 3.75 – 1 lead going into the afternoon singles.
Three points were required for St Enodoc in the afternoon however, it was Tehidy who drew first blood with a 3&2 win for Rob Macgregor over Lewis Bradley in match 1. In match 2 a birdie finish was required from Justin Barnard to halve his match with Louis Archer. In match 4 Joe Combellack would get St Enodoc off the mark with an impressive 7&6 win over Adam Nottma. Tehidy then added two more points with Richard Simmons defeating Steve Chapman 2&1 in match 3, followed by a 3&2 win for Lee Chambers over Charlie Runnalls in match 5. Chris Hoyle narrowly beat Mike Masters 2&1 in match 6, meaning 1.5 points were required from the remaining two games. In match 8 George Tunbridge would follow his morning win with a second 5&4 victory of the day, playing against James Barnard. Match 7 was still alive with Mark Justice needing to halve the match for St Enodoc to progress to the the Final. Mark would duly deliver making a brilliant Par on the tricky 17th hole at Trevose and therefore beating James Levick 2&1, securing our place in the Final and a result of St Enodoc 7.25 – 5.5 Tehidy Park.
We would like to thank Tehidy for the great game, Trevose for hosting us, and to all the spectators who came out and supported us on the day.
The final will be played on Sunday 17th March vs West Cornwall at Bude & North Cornwall Golf Club.
