Match Report MTGS -v- President’s Team
Betchworth Golf Club
August 28/29 2013

On a beautiful summers day 20 guys turned up at a wonderful golf course to do battle for a famous trophy and have a great time.

The first days match was 4 ball better ball matches played in the rolling Surrey countryside. New friends were made, Pimms was drunk at the half way house and balls were lost on the course. Some matches were won easily and others fought to the end. First day’s result was 3 ½ - 1 ½ to the President. Details below.

Following a cooling shower and a few glasses on the veranda overlooking the green Surrey landscape the teams sat down to a first class Dinner with all the works. A small quantity! of alcohol was consumed and the world was remodelled and past matches relived. The parings for the next day were announced and discussed! A few players then returned to their near by homes and rest adjourned to the nearby Travel Lodge!!

8am next day saw the guys eating a full English breakfast back at the Club on yet another lovely day. 10 singles matches then went out for the fray. More balls were lost and 3 elusive yellow balls from the previous day were found! The MTGS players had a better day and the result was 6/4 to the MTGS. Full details below.

Drinks were had on the Veranda followed by lunch in the dining room. The President announced the overhal result a as a Draw 7 ½ - 7 ½ and the found yellow balls were returned to their owner!! As the Cup was held last year by the president John will hold it for 2014. All agreed that a good time was had by all.
