The Hambro scoring for this fixture must have left a nail biting finish for those already in the clubhouse. Cretingham were 3 holes up over the first 3 matches with one match still to come in.

At 3 down with 2 to play in the last match we were told it was still “nip and tuck” but not what the scores were. The 17th hole went to Bury with a monster putt for par, 4 down and 1 to play. The 18th was played shot for shot to reach the green, we had one less putt to hole out, back to 3 down………ALL SQUARE for the team.

Playoff time! We chose Roz and Sue and Bury chose their last pair. Roz played the hole in textbook fashion and held her nerve over the par putt after Bury had failed to get theirs in. Victory!

A great effort from the whole team, one less hole from any of us and there would have been no playoff.

Thank you to Bury for making us feel so welcome, excellent scones too, and for being magnanimous at the end of the day.
