The first match of the season was an U12-U14 group against Wiltshire. This was a fixture that had been cancelled in previous years due to inclement weather but this time the weather was unusually warm for the time of year but with a wind to test the players on an anything but flat golf course.
With good warm up facilities everything was in place for both teams to have a good match. The format for the day was 4 ball better ball.
High Post GC presented a number of challenges with it's side slopes, up slopes, down slopes which definitely gave an advantage to anyone with knowledge of the layout.
The front matches were very tight, leads went back and forward and went the distance, some of the younger age groups finished up early and again a couple had to be played up the 18th.
Eventually when scores were added up, Surrey ran out winners 6.5-2.5
It was good to get the first match of the season out of the way and clear some of the cobwebs gathered over the winter.
The boys (and organisers) enjoyed a meal which presented a number of tasty choices before leaving to make their journey's home.
