DMVGA EMERTON-COURT FINAL

DMVGA V CORNWALL    @    LAUNCESTON GOLF CLUB 13TH MAY 

Match Report

On a lovely afternoon 22 selected members travelled down to Launceston to take on the 22 players from the Cornwall Seniors. It turned out to be a very good afternoon for the DMVGA coming out eventual winners by  7 & ½ pts to 3 & ½ pts, The weather was very pleasant and the course was in great condition. So a win away was a good start for us to try and keep possession of the salver.

DMVGA V CORNWALL   @    TAVISTOCK GOLF CLUB 20TH MAY

Match Report

The return visit at Tavistock a week later was played in slightly different condition with a steady breeze blowing most of the time. It seemed at one point when we had 6 results we could have been looking at a very heavy defeat, but 4 wins and a half in the last 5 matches, made the scores became a little closer.   The overall match result, Devon 12 ½   Cornwall 9 ½, but losing at home 6-5 was not what we would have wished for.

 

DMVGA V ASSOCIATION OF  KENT VETERAN GOLFERS   @   CHURSTON GOLF CLUB 3RD JULY  

Match Report  

On a lovely hot sunny day 16 members from both organizations took up the mantle to either 1- keep hold or 2- win back the Gordon Emerton Salver. As captain this year it was my privilege to host the Men of Kent.

Churston Golf course was in excellent condition, and along with the weather a fantastic day was had by all, it was just a shame that, following questions by the opposition, my geography on the views across the bay wasn’t as good.

We did manage to keep hold of the trophy with a match result of 6-2, so for the 2nd year running we hold both salvers played for against both Cornwall & Kent.

So for next year when we visit Kent again in early July we will be looking for another good result.

As always thanks must go to the clubs for allowing their courses to be used for these events along with excellent catering facilities.
