The inaugural Welsh Seniors Inter-Counties Championship was held at Ashburnham Golf Club on 18th & 19th September. Please follow links below for details of team and individual results:-
Our last match of the current season was against Brecon & Radnor. After travelling for many hours we arrived at Brecon Golf Club, the sun was shining and the views all around the nine hole course were magnificent. The course which is situated on the edge of Brecon Beacons national park was in excellent condition.
We were all given a very warm welcome from the home team and after light refreshments we were ready to start. The wind was blowing strongly which provided a challenging test for both teams, with local knowledge playing its part over the first nine holes, we all knew it was going to be a tough match.
The match consisted of five better ball matches with victories for the Denbighshire pairings of Ray Ledsham & Dave Jones, Dave Griffiths & Paul Johns and John Hatcher & Ray Bennett.
Final match score – Brecon & Radnor 2 points – Denbighshire 3 points
Our fifth match of the current season took place by the North Wales coast in sunny Rhos on Sea.
Making his debut for the team was Denbighshire County Captain, Mr John Leigh who made both teams feel welcome at his home course.
After the morning greensome matches, the score was Denbighshire 3 ½ points, Shropshire 2 ½ points. There were victories for Denbighshire pairings of George Smith & Kevin Walsh, Allan Merrill & Chris Marsden and Jonathan Tym & Mike Lowe. Ray Ledsham & Dave Griffiths halved their match.
Shropshire were in fighting form during the afternoon matches with just two matches being won by the Denbighshire pairings of George Smith & Kevin Walsh and Jonathan Tym & Mike Lowe.
Final Match score – Denbighshire 7 ½ points – Shropshire & Herefordshire 10 ½ points.
Following the match we enjoyed the hospitality, food and drinks at Rhos on Sea GC, there was plenty of banter throughout the meal with both sides enjoying each other’s company and with Denbighshire looking forward to fighting back at next year’s fixture.
