RAGS v Artists Rifles GS 2018 – Blackmoor GC, 3 May 2018

Result: Lost 3-2

Regrettably, we only managed to field eight players after two players dropped out which was a pity. It was a pity not only for the result, but two more players would have enjoyed this outstanding course played in beautiful sunny conditions. Despite the recent wet weather, this Harry Colt course, built on sand, was presented in superb condition. If anyone hasn’t played Blackmoor, they really should come along next year and experience what it has to offer. This year we played Four Ball Better Ball (4BBB), as opposed to St Andrews’ Foursomes, and the consensus was to continue this format. The beef carvery lunch was as good and generous as ever and there was great bonhomie between the two societies.
