Despite heavy rain as we set off, the day quickly turned in a sunny dry one to enable all 120 players to enjoy this County competition. By lunchtime Bude had posted a good score with two pairings on 72, 76 with all to play for in the afternoon session.
Lunch break was spent quickly refuelling with our customary picnic and gave us the chance to catch up with each other’s progress.
The afternoon again went well for the Bude team of six. Playing against the ladies from Killiow, everyone enjoyed their golf, with the course proving an excellent venue for this fixture. Two more scores in the 70’s, meant the team were on for a great placing.
We all knew our lead off pair, Collette and Mandy had done exceptionally well and the day could not have ended better than for their names to be called as the winners of this year’s Baron Rose Bowl Trophy. A very proud moment for me as Lady Captain and for the whole team, who played really well and finished in tied 5th position.
But huge congratulations to Collette and Mandy, flying the flag high for Bude.

Commiserations to the Frank Wills
On Sunday 25th November your Frank Wills team played Carlyon Bay Golf Club at St. Enodoc.It was a disappointing day for us as we lost 4:1 on what was a closer match than the final result appears. We started well and at the turn we were leading 4:1 and looking good, but as many of you will know, holes 10 to 15 are challenging to say the least, and they were our undoing.
Congratulations to our opponents who played those holes well, which put them in a winning position.
And may I also add my congratulations to our new Frank Wills players, Paul Haddon and Nick Swan who won both their round 1 and 2 matches.
I would like to thank the following players, who stepped up to the plate to represent you …
Dave Ward, Micky Hudson, Horrace, Andrew Pelling, Phil Davies, Phil Stanbury, Steve Bartrop, Paul Haddon, Nick Swan, Lee Mears, Andrew Finley.
I would also like to thank Dave and Christine Simmons, Gary Stone and Pete Greatbatch for turning out in support on what was a cold morning.
It was my pleasure to be your Frank Wills Captain for 2019, I enjoyed the challenge, and look forward to next year’s competition.

Match 3. Mark Duncan & Phil Davies match won 4&2.
Match 4. Phil Stanbury & Steve Bartrop match won 2&1.
Match 5. Paul Haddon & Nick Swan match won 4&3.
So overall a great team performance, and we look forward to playing Carlyon Bay in round 2 on the weekend of 24/25 November venue to be decided. I would like to thank all the players for taking their time to play for our club, I know they are all proud to do so, and I would also like to say a big thank you to Dave and Chris Simmons, for taking the time to support us on the day, and helping myself by relaying score updates during the match.

- Intermediate (18-30 yrs.) = unrestricted parking rights 24/7
- Parking membership = unrestricted parking rights 24/7
ALL OTHER GOLFING MEMBERSHIP CATEGORIES REQUIRE ON THE DAY REGISTRATION OF YOUR VEHICLE NUMBER PLATE

SOCIAL MEMBERS & OTHER CLUBHOUSE USERS
You will be required to input your car -registration number each time you are using the premises. This will entitle you to a three hour stay before having to re-input the number.
