Senior Salver (John Ling) Final at RAC Golf Club
Friday 19th October 2018
After losing in the first round of the Seniors’ Club Team Knockout (The John Ling Trophy) these two teams along with nearly 40 others then automatically get entered the Salver.
After battling their way through another five rounds played throughout the year Hankley Common and The Wisley met in the Final, played at last year’s winners’ course, the RAC.
The day was bright but somewhat chilly as the players gathered on the practice range and putting green.
John Ling was present to see them all off the 1st tee in the FBBB handicapped match play over 18 holes.
Although the Wisley took the lead winning the first two matches Hankley fought back winning the next two leaving it to be decided by the fifth and final match. This match finished all square on the 18th so extra holes sudden death was needed, and this was won by Hankley Common.
After a most enjoyable high tea in the 19th County Secretary Steve McNeill presented the runners up prizes, then to the winning team theirs and the Salver.
Our thanks to the RAC Golf Club for hosting this final and making everyone feel so very welcome.
