GC Doubles Tournament

The Manager Reports

First of all, I would like to thank all competitors for turning out for the doubles level play tournament especially in view of the weather forecast prediction of 28 degrees plus.  The club gazebo was really appreciated in giving us some much needed shade.

I would also like to thank Sally for being timekeeper and general helper in organising the day.


1st place – Eileen and Colin MacDonald with 34 hoops

2nd place – Dawn and John Reddish with 33 hoops

Joint 3rd place – Mary and Jeremy Moore and Jane Burton and Trevor Whittaker with 31 hoops

Let’s hope for a good turn out for next year, with full use of the facilities.


Sam Murray wins Watford Midweek Advanced

19-20 May 2021

It was a chilly day that saw the arrival of a strong entry for the second 2-day

AC Midweek Advanced tournament to be staged at Watford, after the cancellation

of the 2020 event. It was also the first to be able to take advantage of the

new pavilion, albeit in a socially distanced way that still required food and

beverages to be consumed al fresco outdoors.

The entry was split by handicap into two independent blocks, with the winners

in each block determined by the highest percentage from a minimum of 5 games.

In the ‘A’ block Sam Murray proved to be on top form, stamping his mark in the

first round with a tpo and following up with two more tps in his next five

games to win the tournament and the Cassiobury Cup with a 100% record. Stephen

Wright also played well, showing some of the form from his heyday some decades

earlier, and his only defeat was at the hands of Sam.
