On Sunday 11th November, eight of our Club Juniors took on the Men’s Scratch Team in a friendly match.
Both sides fielded very strong teams with Mike Bush leading the Scratch team, and Harry Parkhouse leading the Junior team.
The Juniors very quickly realised they had their work cut out. With the Scratch team rattling in birdies from everywhere, the Juniors were down in three of the four matches at the turn. They weren’t ready to rollover though, and all staged a spirited fightback on the back nine.
It wasn’t quite enough in two of the matches and the Scratch Team ended up winning the day with a 2 ½ to 1 ½ victory.
Vice Captain Mark Riddick commented: "What a great day this was. Thanks to Mike Bush and the other members of the Scratch Team for giving up their Sunday, and well done to the Junior Team for putting in such a strong performance. From the Club's perspective, this is exactly the sort of culture we want to foster here: members working together to build a strong future for Rochester and Cobham Park Golf Club. I hope that the Scratch Team take on board the lessons they learnt from the day..."
