Avalon A Team Match vs Farrington Park C Result
Avalon A Team vs. Farrington Park C – Sat 29th June 2013
The Avalon a Team welcomed Farrington Park C to Orchardleigh for our 5th match of the season. The match took place on a glorious sunny afternoon with a bit of a breeze and with the course and greens in excellent condition. It was almost like playing in summer!! After only managing a 3-2 home win two weeks ago we were keen to use our home advantage and continue our push for promotion. After a hearty Full English breakfast we made for the course facing the prospect of giving 36 shots away.
Paul Lewis and Leon Matthews led the team off and they soon knew they were in for a battle. Giving 6 shots to each of their opponents the visitors won the first 2 holes and despite a fight back on the last 6 holes the home pair were unable to overturn the early deficit, eventually going down 2&1. Matt Dredge and Paul Ashman were our second pair also facing the prospect of having to give shots away. The match was a tight affair with no more than 2 holes in it until late on, but experience on the back nine saw the home team extend their lead to shake hands with a 4&2 win on the 16th green. Alex Fraser and Neil Jelly took up their usual third place position, keen to get back to winning ways. Early skirmishes were tight but round the turn they extended their lead to go 3 up after 12. However the away team were in no mood to roll over and a fight back meant that the match was all square after 16. However Neil hit an excellent tee shot and the putt was conceded for birdie giving them a 1 hole lead going up the last and they secured the point by winning the 18th for a 2up victory. The fourth pair of Rob Edney and Joe Hearn went 1 down early after they both bogeyed the 1st but birdies on the 3rd, 5th & 7th saw the home team turn 2 up. Pars at 10, 11 and a birdie at 12 saw this lead stretched to 4 up after 12. However again the away team staged a comeback and after 14 holes the lead was back to 2. If not for Joe holing a quick downhill breaking putt on the 15th the lead could have only been 1 but it dropped and a par on 16 was enough to close the match out 3&2. The final match saw Ian Longhurst and debutant Simon Addison combine well in another tight match. They managed to gradually edge ahead by 3 holes midway through the back 9 and constant pressure from Ian and a great up and down on the 17th from Simon secured a 2&1 win. This made the final match result a good 4-1 win for Orchardleigh.
After a few pints and some sandwiches and chips on the patio in the Sun, Rob collected more fines for our end of the season tour with once again Leon heavily contributing for numerous misdemeanours which included arriving late and leaving early. Our next match is away at Mendip Spring on Saturday 13th July where we hope to make it 6 wins from 6 matches.

Avalon A Team vs Mendip Spring
Avalon A Team vs Mendip Spring – Sun 16th June 2013
The Avalon A Team returned to action after a 6 week break by welcoming Mendip Spring to Orchardleigh. There were one or two sore heads following Pete’s 60th Birthday Party the night before but a hearty breakfast and lots of coffee seemed to help. The promised heavy rain didn’t materialise and after a few damp holes waterproofs were confined to the bag for the rest of the round. The opening skirmishes were tight with holes being won by both teams and with the home team giving 39 shots away the matches were always going to be tight affairs.
Joe Hearn and Jordan Lawrence led the team off but were always up against a steady opposition pair giving shots away. After a heard fought match they went down 3&2. The second pair of Paul Lewis and Leon Matthews also had a very tight match with neither pair getting more than 1 hole ahead. After trailing by one hole walking down the 15th, a run of 3 winning holes in a row turned the match around and they recorded a well earned 2&1 victory. Alex Fraser and Neil Jelly were bidding to continue their unbeaten start to the season but were always facing an uphill battle after going down early on in the match. Having pulled back a 2 hole deficit walking down 15 the match was all square going down the 18th. However a good up and down from 100 yards for par by the Mendip Club Vice Captain sealed the win on the 18th. Next up for Orchardleigh were Rob Edney and Matt Dredge. The lead changed on each of the first 5 holes with the home team only emerging 1 up despite 3 birdies in the first 5 holes. Further birdies at the 7th, 12th and 13th and a couple of missed putts from the opposition saw the home pair move into a 5 hole lead, eventually shaking hands on the 15th green for 5&3 win. With the match poised at 2-2 the result rested with the final pairing of Ollie Worts and Ian Longhurst. Again the match was close with no more than 1 hole in it for most of the round. However the home teams experience told in the end and wins on holes 14, 15 and 16 saw them win 4&2. This made the final match result a hard fought 3-2 win for Orchardleigh. .
After a few pints and some sandwiches Leon collected more fines for our end of the season tour although the Captain did turn the tables and fined Leon heavily for numerous misdemeanours which included his phone going off during the Captains speech!! Our next match is again at home against Farrington Park on Saturday 29th June where we hope to continue our winning start to the season.

Stragglers Vs Mendip
The Stragglers suffered a narrow defeat at Mendip Golf Club on Tuesday 2nd May. Having to give away 40+ shots it was always going to be a tough ask, and with 2 matches being lost on the last green, a 3-2 loss was a a great effort by everyone.

Avalon A Team Match vs Farrington Park C
Avalon A Team vs Farrington Park C – Sun 28th April 2013
We travelled to Farrington Park for our third match of the season which took place on a cold and windy Sunday afternoon. Farrington C came up from Division 4 last season and had handicaps ranging from 4 to 14. As a result we were once again giving plenty of shots away which ensured that the matches were competitive affairs.
The team and club Captains pairing of Rob Edney & Dave Jukes led the team off for this match against Farrington C’s Captain and his partner, who were both off 14. There was never more than 2 holes in it and it could have been a lot closer if they hadn’t missed a couple of short putts on the back 9, but we took the first match 3&1. Jordan Lawrence and Joe Hearn made a slow start and were 2 down after 6 holes but a run of 6 consecutive holes around the turn saw them ease to a convincing 5&4 victory. Alex Fraser and Neil Jelly continued their good form and overturned an early deficit to run out 4&2 winners. Our fourth pair was Ollie Worts and Ian Longhurst and despite being up for most of the way round they were always going to face a tough task giving away 10 shots, especially when three of these shots were on the last 3 holes. They eventually lost 1 down in a hard fought match. Paul Lewis and Leon Matthews anchored the team and the last match was another close affair with the lead changing hands a number of times. Having seen a birdie putt lip out on 17 to win the match they held their nerve well to par the last and record a 1 up win. This made the final result a fantastic 4-1 away win for Orchardleigh A
We enjoyed a Full English brunch before we played so there was no after match meal. This didn’t stop Leon upping the ante and taking more fines off us to go towards our Tour at the end of the season. Our next match is at home against Mendip Spring on Sunday 16th June where we hope to continue our good early season form.
Avalon A Team Match vs Taunton Vale A
Avalon A Team vs Taunton Vale A – Sun 21st April 2013
Our second match of the season saw Taunton Vale A visit Orchardleigh on a cool and breezy Sunday afternoon. Taunton Vale came down from division 2 last season and the handicaps of their team reflected this. However we were still giving 9 shots away overall and the matches were all tight affairs. At the turn we were up by 1 hole in 2 matches, all square in 2 matches and 2 down in the final match.
On the back 9, holes were constantly being traded but one by one we picked off the wins. Debutant Matt Dredge partnered Paul “Tubbs” Ashman to a good 3&2 win in the top game. Leon Matthews and Paul Lewis opened their account for the season with a hard fought 2&1 win. Neil Jelly & Alex Fraser won 3&2 making it 6 wins from their last 7 matches and Rob Edney & Dave Jukes made it 2 wins out of 2 this season with another close 2&1 win. The final match saw Ollie Worts and Joe Hearn come back from 3 down after 8 holes to level the match with Ollie draining a 25 foot putt on the 18th for birdie. The end resulted was an excellent 4 ½ - ½ win which moves us to the top of the division at this very early stage.
Gail and her staff served up another excellent meal and Leon once again dished out fines ranging from incorrect jacket colour to no club tie. He even managed to fine the Captain for turning up late to his own pre match team talk!! We visit Farrington Golf club for our next match which is on Sunday 28th April.

Avalon A Team Match vs Stockwood Vale A
Avalon A Team vs Stockwood Vale B – Sat 6th April 2013
The A Team started their 2013 campaign in Division 3 with a home match against Stockwood Vale B Team. The matches were played in a good but competitive spirit on the best day of the year so far weather wise. It was almost warm enough to play in shirt sleeves!
The matches were competitive affairs but we opened the season with a good 4-1 victory. The opening match was hard fought but Gary Quin and Paul Ashman managed to halve the 18th to hold out for a 1up win. The match was levelled when Paul Lewis & Leon Matthews went down 2&1 to a very well handicapped pair, but Alex Fraser & Neil Jelly kept up their unbeaten home record with a 3&2 victory and the same result was recorded by Dave Jukes & Rob Edney. Ollie Worts & Ian Longhurst rounding off the matches with a convincing 6&4 win over their opponents to seal the 4-1 win.
Gail and her staff served up an excellent meal and Leon managed to relieve us all of some cash to start off the kitty for our end of season tour. Next match is on Sunday 21st April at home to Taunton Vale A.
