Match 1 – HOME v THE SUFFOLK Thursday 4th April

In our opening fixture of the season, Heydon Venerables got off to a great start by defeating The Suffolk by 5 – 1 in what were a set of close fought contests.

An excellent match: in cold, breezy and dry conditions, with good food, course in excellent condition, topped off by great company.

Match 2 – AWAY v ROYSTON – Friday 12th April

On our annual visit to ‘mount Royston’ we came up against a team in very good form. However, an enjoyable day with good company, decent weather and good food. We lost the match 0.5 to 5.5

Match 3 – HOME v GIRTON – Friday 26th April

It’s always a pleasure to entertain our friends from Girton, and today was no exception. Weather was good although a little windy, food was good and some close fought matches. The final result was a 2.5 to 3.5 loss to Girton.

Match 4 – AWAY v HENLOW – Thursday 16th May

Good weather yet again (we’re being spoilt this year) for our away match at Henlow. Another set of close fought matches with four of them finishing on the 17th hole, and one on the 18th. Good food and good company. The result was a win for Henlow 4.5 to 1.5

Match 5 – HOME v THE BEDFORD Thursday 23rd May

Yet again, some superb weather for our home match vs the Bedford. Very enjoyable company, followed by one of Mrs A’s excellent buffets.

Unfortunately we couldn’t match the Bedford on the course, and a comfortable victory for them by 5 to 1.

Match 6 – HOME v HENLOW Friday 14th June

After a week of unrelenting rain, the clouds finally broke just in time for a dry(ish) home match against Henlow.

As always, excellent company followed by an extra hot curry courtesy of Mrs A. After losing 4.5 to 1.5 away, we were up against it to regain the Heydon / Henlow Seniors Trophy.

But some stupendous golf from Heydon resulted in a 5 to 1 victory, and regaining the trophy with an aggregate score of 6.5 to 5.5.

Well done team.
