Result: 4 – 1
The match was played in excellent conditions (despite the earlier monsoon!).
Gifford were chasing the match after losing the away fixture 4-1 – a daunting but deliverable task.
Some new pairings resulted in us winning the match 4-1 and therefore drawing the 2 leg match and retaining the silverware. Lots of compliments about the presentation of the course and the consistency of the greens.
A joy as always to play Winterfield and already looking forward to next year!
