Norfolk Seniors v Norfolk Ladies

Always a great season opener.....

On a fresh sunny day at Gt Yarmouth and Caister the County Seniors played their annual friendly match against the County Ladies. The format was scratch betterball with 4 pairs a side.

The front pairing of Mark Skipper and Richard Brown battled hard but were unable to match the impressive 6 under performance of Tiffany Mills and Chloe Gibbs, eventually losing 3 & 2.

The second match was an all Royal Norwich affair with Adrian Myhill and Greig Shepherd playing Jo Hurd and Eve Nield. Eve started strongly with two birdies and an Eagle on the first 3 par fives, but some solid golf from the 6th onwards saw the Seniors fight back and eventually win the 18th for a 1up victory.

Match 3 saw the strong partnership of David Pattrick and John Tavener take on Vanessa Mann and Jess Rutherford, once again they performed excellently winning 5 & 3.

In the last game, having been hit with three birdies in the four previous holes, Alistair Pykett and Graham Turner secured a half with Sammy Martin and Imogen Leeder by winning the 18th hole.

An excellent win, in the final friendly prior to the League matches beginning next month.’
