Somerset Bowl Report
At the AGM 2016 – John Fry reported the following:
The Somerset Bowl always proves to be a trophy too far for the club at the moment, although this year we did manage to get through to the semi-finals. The format is always difficult. Foursomes played off the white tees. We have always struggled until this year to get enough younger seniors with low handicaps to play. But this is changing, so in years to come I think that we will eventually get to a final. This year we produced a good team with the potential to do well. Our first match played against Fosseway at Farrington Golf Club on the 21st March 2016 we won 4 games to 1. Our second game played against Enmore Park at Clevedon Golf Club on 1st June 2016 we won 3 games to 2. Our third game played against Burnham & Berrow at Wells Golf Club on 19th July 2016 we won 3.5 games to 1.5. We played our fourth game which was the semi-final against Taunton & Pickeridge at Weston Super Mare Golf Club on 18th August 2016 and unfortunately we lost 3 games to 2. We could possibly have won that match which would have meant that we would have played Saltford Golf Club at Clevedon. Saltford went on to win the Somerset Bowl. Beating Taunton & Pickeridge 3 games to 2. So now there is next year and with new senior players becoming available, with the right mix I am sure that we will be able to challenge for the trophy.
