We welcomed St.Pierre Captains to Tavistock GC on an almost perfect golfing day, warm but not too hot and a nice cooling breeze to keep us all comfortable. The course was very challenging and all shots needed lots of thought due to the ball travelling much further than usual due to the firm ground, hate to say it but rain would be welcome on most golf courses.
It made a nice change to have a match that had no problems with team numbers although St. Pierre did have to field a few ‘ringers’ to make their numbers up.
Lots of old acquaintances were renewed and some very close matches ensued. The first four matches were very close but we prevailed, winning two of them 1 up, another 2 and 1 and the other halved. These set up a fine win for DGC, 51/2 to 21/2.
We then enjoyed a fine meal, some excellent hospitality and lots of banter.
