An enjoyable matchplay team event
played at Fulford & some of our Midlands neighbours
Captained by Dave Slade from 2017 to 2018 we welcome gentlemen to put themselves forward to play in this wonderful advertisement for the game of golf.
In this section we will endeavour to keep our readers up to date with what has happened and what is going to happen in the B Team, fixtures, results and future games.
2018 Round Up
The 2018 season was a real mixture. After losing three early fixtures to the very wet spring weather, we played in some delightful sunshine through the summer and into the autumn. Results wise we won 8 fixtures, lost 7 and halved 3 – a very balanced year! As seems to be normal, we were very much home birds – only losing 1 fixture at Fulford Heath but only winning twice on our travels – at Stratford Oaks and Olton. We used almost 40 players during the season but are always happy to welcome new players to the team.
If results were mixed, the enjoyment certainly wasn’t! B Team matches are always “competitive” but it is much more important to play some cracking local courses, share Fulford Heath with our guests, catch up with old friends from previous years and make new ones. We added Sutton Coldfield GC to the fixture list for the first time this year and look forward to playing them twice in 2019. We continue to look for ways to expand the fixture list.
The B Team Cup was competed for on 28 September with Howard Partridge winning the cup with an impressive 40 stableford points. Alan Foxwell from Robin Hood GC took the visitors’ prize. Dusty Rhodes had a wonderful hole-in-one on the 8th – unfortunately not a nearest the pin hole! Our annual dinner will be held on Friday 8 February 2019 and all are welcome, whether or not you have played for the B Team yet.
