Seniors' Match v Congleton - Away Fixtures.
A wonderful day was had by all, well almost all. The weather was warm and sunny, the food was very good and the drinks went down well after all that sun (they usually do). Above all, the company was excellent.
I do like golf courses that are not flat and Congleton is anything but. I find it a very enjoyable course to play and our game was nip and tuck all the way, finally resulting in a well-deserved half.
Life can be strange: I bumped into Allan Clarke the day before the match. Having not seen him for ages he ended up being my playing partner for the event. I didn’t even know if he was still a member. What a larger than life character and what good company. I hope to see more of him in our senior matches.
The result of the match was a win for Leek - 5 wins 2 halves and 1 loss (I did say almost all) and whilst winning is nice, the real result was a match well played, on a lovely course, in good weather with excellent fellowship.
If you qualify for the seniors do come and join us. You don’t know what you’re missing.
