Played at Holyhead Golf Club on Saturday 27th April 2019
Our Lancashire Seniors had a tough match to play not only against the Welsh Northern Counties team, but also against storm “Hanna”, which lashed our Welsh and Lancashire coast line last Friday night and Saturday. However, as the saying goes when the going gets tough the tough get going! Our team of eight playing 4BBB matches certainly applied themselves with grit and determination against a very competitive Welsh team when they played their match at Holyhead Golf Club last Saturday.
Despite the strong gale force winds and showers that battered the players throughout the match they still smiled and agreed it had been tough, but a good challenge for them. The standard of golf was very high despite the difficult weather conditions.
We lost the first match, won the second and fourth match and the third match was very evenly balanced and went all the way to the 18th where we narrowly lost one down, so overall the match was halved, which especially under the challenging weather conditions was a good result and a tremendous effort by our team who didn’t really know the course as most of them had never played it before.
