Surrey 5s Inter-Club East Final Roehampton Club 14th September 2019
Reigate Hill A versus Horton Park B teams On a beautiful September day with the Roehampton Golf Course in excellent condition the five singles matches vied for the place in the grand final to be held at Burhill Golf Club on Sunday 22nd September.
Matches 1 and 2 were won by Reigate 4&3 and 5&4 and matches 3 and 4 were won by Horton Park, 5&3 and 5&4. The third match provided all the excitement and tension you could wish for, with the winner being determined by the final putt on the 18th hole.
The match was all square on the 17th until Horton park chipped in to go one up. Horton Park drove off down the right-hand side and clipped the trees but fortunately the ball bounced back into the fairway although costing distance. Reigate hit a superb drive which ran off the left-hand side of the fairway ending under some trees. Approach shots were made, and left Reigate with a putt to take the match to the 19th hole but it slid past and Horton Park halved the hole, won the match, I up, and won the final 3&2.
Final Result: Winners Horton Park 3&2
