Ballards Gore Golf Club Jubilee Cup Report

Ballards Gore Golf Club travelled to us for an early start to the season saw the Teams play in all four seasons! Two evenly matched sides battled hard and had to dig deep in difficult conditions. At the turn, the singles matches looked to be evenly balanced at 3 games up & 3 down. These matches finished 2 wins, 2 loses and 2 halved. Some tremendous finishes down the last from the top two matches with Adam Nossek & Lewis Shurlin producing battling halves. Darren May and Warren Whiteman were beaten by opponents who took a liking to our course. Andrew Durrant & skipper David Phillips then added strong wins to help the “goal difference” with 2&1 and 8&6 respectively.

Over to the pairs who were naturally some way back in the timescale of the afternoon! Abridge maintained dominance through these games with early leads that were built upon gradually. ‘Birthday Boy’ Spencer Fenton & Eitan Fox opened with a 3&2 win, followed by Menashy Cohen & Jonathan Lewis who secured the winning point with a convincing 4&2 victory. With the light dwindling rapidly, the two Stephens…..Golding & Tall closed out for a half point on 18th.

Abridge Golf Club V Ballards Gore Golf Club – Jubilee Cup 2019

Final Score 5 ⅟2 -3 ⅟2. A valuable home win, always essential in Jubilee Cup. Next up AWAY to Crondon Park, a tough challenge against a seasoned & experienced Jubilee side. By then it may have warmed up, but in the mean time we can bask in current success and reflect upon a good job done in the right spirit.

Well at least the wind has died down!!

More heavy rain over night means there will still be some temporary greens in play today. Please check at the pro shop for any updates. Buggies can be used on the front 9 only and are to stick to the paths. Trolleys can be used on front and back 9’s. If possible please use the paths. Please abide by the ropes where possible and repair pitch marks and divots.

You Can Go Away Now Gareth!!

More rain overnight has led to the course being extremely wet. There may be a few temporary greens in play today but please check at the pro shop for any updates. Buggies are allowed on the front 9 only and are to stick the paths. Trolleys can use the front and back 9’s. Please stick to the paths where possible. As mentioned before, it’s very wet out there so please take care and follow the ropes. Please repair your pitch marks and divots.

Congratulations to our new President, Steve Action

It is with great pleasure that I can announce that the Board have unanimously decided to honour Stephen Acton with the title of President of Abridge Golf Club. This position is in recognition of all the hours and days of voluntary hard work he has performed for decades for the benefit of Abridge.

I probably know more than most how much work he has done. Having been a member of Abridge for 55 years and served with him on the Board over 17 years ago, I have seen first-hand his tireless efforts. Most of you are probably aware of his recent help with the sale and leaseback deal. That is just one of the many mammoth tasks he has undertaken, along with writing and re-writing the constitution and always being on hand to answer any legally related questions for the Club.

We hope this title brings Stephen gratification and kudos, and we also intend to provide him with a coveted parking space.

With the probable demise of the London League in its current format Abridge intends to host a day for our sister clubs and we will play for the Stephen Acton Trophy.

I am sure you will agree this is a much-deserved honour and please join with me and the Board in wishing him many years of happiness, joy and success as President of Abridge.
