Surrey 5s West Division Final 2019
Teams from The Drift and Silvermere met at Clandon Regis on Saturday September 15th to compete in the final
of the Surrey 5s West Division. The weather was warm and sunny and the matches were played in a very competitive,
but sporting manner. After the results of four of the matches were known, the scores were tied at two matches all,
this being after one of the matches was all square after eighteen holes, but was settled on the nineteenth.
Needless to say, all eyes were eyes fixed on the fifth match as the players approached the eighteenth green.
Two of the approach shots, one from a Silvermere player and the other from a player from The Drift were within
four feet of the pin, one just above the hole and the other below with an uphill putt. The excitement climaxed when
it became known that these putts would decide the winner of this match and the final. The winning putt was made
by the Silvermere player meaning that Silvermere won by 3 matches to two and they will progress to the East v West
Division final to be played at Burhill on September 22nd.
All the players were very complimentary about the condition of the Clandon Regis golf course.
