Surrey Downs v Farleigh
13 August 2012
Result Surrey Downs 45 - 45 Farleigh
On a beautiful Summers day and the course being in very good condition a very tight match was played out,
First out were the Farleigh big hitters John and Rob who got the better of Andrew and Chris and ran out winners by five points.
Up next came Paul and James for Surrey Downs and although at one point were six points behind managed to rally and went down by three to Gary and Tony.
The tide then turned with Gordon and Rob coming home three points ahead of Alex and Billy.
The fourth match again went the way of the Surrey Downs pair of Nick and Stuart and posted a three point victory against Bryan and Alex.
This left Farleigh up by two with one result to go, a hard fought match which saw the first seven holes halved, the Surrey Downs pair of Phil and Derek edged ahead around the turn and managed to keep ahead of the Farleigh pair Simon and Darren and came home with a two point victory
Matched halved to leave the League Table delicately balanced.
Surrey Downs now head for an away game with Reigate Hill, whilst Farleigh will next entertain Woldingham
Woldingham v Surrey National
29 July 2012
Result Woldingham 49.5 - 40.5 Surrey National
A beautiful day for golf and although the bunkers are still a work in progress after recent heavy rain, the course was in very good condition.
Woldingham's 2 Robs, Garbutt and Cackett, edged a high-quality game against Surrey Nat's captain Sean Savedra and his partner Paul Gilbody by just one point.
Jim Marsh and I had a tight game against Dave Pace and Simon Lavelle which was still level after 16, but we somehow managed to win the last 3 holes.
Another close game between the home pair Austin Burns and Chris Coates and visitors Graham Adams and Brian Chamberlain, a one-point win for Woldingham. Sportsmanship award for the day goes to Graham for calling a penalty on himself which no-one else saw. Kudos to Graham for that and a good example of why we all love this game so much and hopefully would all do the same.
Surrey National's only winning pair on the day were Matt Strong and Lee Feasey, some big hitting by them getting them 3 up at one point on Evol Graham and Aydin Turker, who fought back well to only lose by one.
Woldingham's final pair of Geoff Clark and Mel Taylor brough in the big points with a winning margin of 5 over Dilip Sechan and Jim Doran.
Apologies for any incorrect Surrey Nat names in the above, taken from a team sheet with some dodgy writing on it!
We look forward to the return at Surrey National on 25th August.

A dry day at Surrey Downs made a nice change, although the previous 3 months of rain caused a fair amount of casual water and a few new water features.

Match 2 saw the SD pair of James and Paul 4 down with 4 to play but they rallied and managed to half the match against Steve and Sean
Match 3 Phil and Derek combined very well and with some consistent putting were able to beat Bryan and Simon by 11.5-6.5
Match 4 gave SD their largest pairs victory with Andrew and Chris beating Graham and Simon 12.5-5.5.
Match 5 continued the winning sequence for SD with Dave and Jack defeating John and Andrew by 10.5-7.5
Overall score Surrey Downs 54, Surrey National 36
A great result has taken Surrey Downs to the top of the League albeit having played one extra game but the points are on the board, we now look forward to welcoming Farleigh next.

19 June 2012
It was a fine dry day at Woldingham albeit a tad windy!!!
Match 1 Austin & Phil v Steve & Tom - The home pair started the stronger but were pulled back but won the 9th to lead by 2. Steve holed a good put on 13 followed by an inch perfect approach to the 14th squaring up the match but debutant Phil held his nerve to win 15th and 18th resulting in a 10-8 win for the home side.
Match 2 Aydin & John v Paul & James - Again the home side started stronger and held a 5 hole advantage but this was slowly eroded and by winning the 18th squared up this fluctuating match 9 All.
Match 3 Rob & Geoff v Trevor & Phil - Another close game with the away side getting to 2 up but were slowly caught and eventually passed and a half on the 18th ment a 1 hole victory for the home pair.
Match 4 Jim & Mel v Derek & Kelvin - Yet again a closely fought match with the home side getting their noses in front but were caught resulting in the second 9 All of this match.
Match 5 Chris & Geoff v Chris & Dave - The away pair started off with 2 birdies in the first 4 holes to take an early lead but were clawed back and passed and the home side ran out a 5 hole win.
Overall Woldingham 49 Surrey Downs 41
A fine and closely fought match resulting in Woldingham going joint top in the league with 4 matches remaining!!! Things could not be closer!!!
Woldingham v Farleigh
19 May 2012
Woldingham 45 – 45 Farleigh
Woldingham had started the season with 2 away matches, a win and a tie. As the score suggests, their first home match proved to be a closely fought contest. In good conditions, both teams played a high standard of golf in just the right spirit of friendly but fierce competition.
In match 1 the home pairing of Andy Paterson and Chris Coates fought hard but found Bryan Pitt’s 2-under par second nine and an outrageous chip-in on 17 too hot to handle, Bryan and Andy Harrington prevailing by 2 points. In the second match it was the home pair of Jim Marsh and Mike Walsh who had the stronger back nine to go 2 ahead but Alex Pink almost holing his tee shot at 17 brought him and his partner Billy McLachlan to within 1, which was Jim and Mike’s eventual winning margin.
In match 3 Austin Burns and Neil Kirkpatrick proved too strong a home pairing for the 2 Johns Harris and Blezard, coming in 2 up. In the fourth match Woldingham’s lowest handicapper Rob Garbutt turned in a level par round but he and John Jeffries still couldn’t shake off Lee Sugden and Mark Evans, with the match finishing level. So with the final match coming down the 18th Woldingham were ahead by the slimmest margin of 1 point, but the Farleigh pair of Tony McIntyre and Gary Rawlings were 2 ahead of Aydin Turker and Mark Deragon and looking likely to snatch an overall away win for the visitors until Aydin holed for birdie from the edge of the green. So a tied match and a great match. We look forward to the return!
Farleigh v Surrey Downs
18 May 2012
Farleigh Vs Surrey Downs
Farleigh welcomed Surrey Downs to their newly refurbished clubhouse on Sunday 13th May.
In the first match the two John's from Farleigh soon got ahead of Gordon and Charles, going 3 up after 4 holes. Aspirations of a big win were soon dashed after losing the next 3 holes. From then on it was nip and tuck, until the home boys won holes 15 and 17, with Charles not making his extra shots count. The last hole was halved, giving the Farleigh boys a two hole win.
In match 2 the home boys, Jack and Darren, took on James and Paul. Paul certainly seemed to enjoy the course, and utilised his shots well with Jack and Darren 4 down after 9 holes. It was a long way back for Farleigh and in fact went to 6 down. Jack and Darren fought hard and pulled 2 holes back, but just couldn't compete with James, and particularly Paul on the day.
Match 3 saw the home boys, Tony and Gary pitted against Chris and Geoff. Farleigh led from the start, and never allowed Surrey Downs into the game. Tony and Gary steadily won holes with no reply, going 6 up, keeping that lead until the end.
Bryan and Andy, played against Kelvin and Phil in the 4th match who led by two, winning the 4th then the 6th. Farleigh won the long 8th but SD won the 9th, 2 up after 9 holes. Went to 1 down after Andy knocked it to a foot on the 15th for a net 3. Phil waved his magic wand again and scored a birdie on the 16th. Great 2 on 17 by Bryan, brought it back to one, but Farleigh were unable to halve the match, missing a ten foot putt on the last, to lose the battle by one hole.
Farleigh's Alex and Billy played Tom and David in the last match. Alex and Billy went 3 up after 4 holes, then both teams birdied the next two holes, and Tom and David pulling one back before the ninth, to go 2 down. The game got tight when the Surrey Downs boys pulled it back to level after hole 13. Farleigh then preceded to win the 14th and 15th, and halved the rest of the way in, winning the day by 2 holes.
So after a very tight match, played in a great spirit, Farleigh just win the day by 47.5 - 42.5.
We look forward to the return in August
