The Captain’s Blog (No2) – Tess Mann

Hello everyone, just a few words to keep you all up to date. Gavin Jobe and Dave Gibson represented Parklands in the Inter County Foresomes competition at Longhirst Hall Golf Club on Saturday 8th April 17 and they won their first match in the morning against Longhirst 3&1. They were last out in this first round and had only a 10 minute break before embarking on their second round match against Newbiggin which they lost. It was Newbiggin’s first match of the day because their first round opponents had not turned up. So 2 rounds of golf and no time for lunch …. Well done lads!!!

The Vice Captain, Chris Bowman, and myself played in the Captains and Vice Captains 4BBB competition for the Anniversary Cup run by the Hadrian League. The event was held at Newbiggin on Sunday 23rd April 2017. We returned a creditable 41 points against the winning pair who had 46 points. Sorry Chris but it was just too difficult carrying a 2 handicap golfer for 10 holes (I had to get that in!!!) We had a good day and we were paired with 2 great lads from Bellingham.

We play Slaley Hall GC away in the Davison Cup match on Saturday, 29th April with the team selected as K Mossom, G Jobe, R Clark, C Wayman and D Gibson. Not a bad line up!! Can I just say thanks to the rest of the squad for understanding why we picked the selected team. Good luck lads and enjoy the day.

Our first team game in the Hadrian League is away to Tyneside on Wednesday 3rd May.

We had the County Get Together Day at Parklands on Sunday 2nd April and we received lots of compliments about the course and the catering and our hospitality. So I would like to thank all who were involved and a special thanks to Geoff Brown for his support.

Last of all to the Rabbits teams I would like to say good luck and have a great year.
