THE MINI RYDER CUP 2018
As always it was a great day where golf is played in a friendly but competitive spirit.
The morning four ball results went in favour of S&H 3½ - to Nottinghamshire,s 2½. After an enjoyable lunch the afternoon session of 12 single matches went to and fro throughout most of the matches. Eight of the matches ended on the 9th and final hole. These were both tense and exciting for everyone. At the end of the day the result was 9 points each and for the first time in 14 years the match ended in a draw. In true Ryder Cup fashion this meant Shropshire & Hertfordshire retained the Ryder Cup and were awarded the winners trophies.
Chilwell Manor GC were great hosts and our thanks to the members, green staff and professional, Paul, and most importantly the catering staff for meeting all our needs on the day, the food and service were exceptional.
