News and information from this event

MTGS v The Northwest MTGS at Blackwell GC
Thursday 24th September 2015

The teams arrived at the lovely Blackwell club around 12.30 with the weather sunny and a little windy. The pairings were announced over bacon rolls and coffee with our President Roger Prowting paired with Derek Allen teeing off first at 1.30. We had 5 other matches in the usual 4 ball better ball format under match play conditions.

As usual it was a very competitive affair but played in a great atmosphere of friendship. The course was in superb condition as always and the match finished up as a draw. This meant that the Northwest retained the trophy but our President is still unbeaten this year.

The matches finished as follows:-

Roger Prowting and Derek Allen lost, Neil Smith and Terry Wills won, John Smith and David Manchester lost. John Warren and Paul Williams won. Paul Healey and Pawan Kenth won. Steve Drewitt and Sam Burton lost

Final score MTGS 3 Northwest 3

The trophy was presented by our President Roger Prowting to the Northwest captain Paul Lee after a lovely dinner and quite a lot of delicious red and white wine.

My thanks to the catering staff for their kind attention, also many thanks to the green staff who had done a great job of presenting the course in such excellent condition.
Also a big thank you to Terry Wills for stepping in at the very last minute to play.
Blackwell is always a favourite course of the MTGS and we all look forward to returning next September to regain the trophy.

Match Manager.
