Cornwall Bowl

(semi-final) at Trevose Golf Club — Sunday, February 3

WITH the weather stopping most of the golf around the area last week, as snow fell on Thursday and Friday, there were concerns that the much-awaited semi-final of the Cornwall Bowl between Launceston and West Cornwall at Trevose Golf Club near Padstow wouldn’t be able to go ahead.

However, the snow melted away by the weekend and the match went ahead as planned, much to the relief of the players and organisers.

With wins for men’s captain Paul Hicks and his partner, Peter Penhorwood and the pairing of Dan Sloman and Steve Greenaway and losses for Derek Basford and Ernie Best and Rob Sweetzer-Sturt and Joe Dickinson, the outcome was once again finely balanced at 2-2, meaning it all came down to the final pairing of Darren Chapman and Chris James to see if they could reach the showpiece final.

Chapman had a chance to win it for Launceston on the 18th green, but the putt didn’t go in, meaning that they had to carry on for at least another hole.

The West Cornwall pairing had a chance to win on the 19th, but again the putt stayed out.

On the 20th hole it again fell to Darren who slotted in a long putt for the win, much to the delight of the watching team, caddies and supporters.

Club secretary Alan Creber said: “A huge thank you goes to those caddies and the large number of supporters who came down to cheer the boys on.

“With the other semi-final between Whitsand Bay and Trethorne scheduled for this weekend, the prospect of an all Launceston final is still in the balance.”

Cornwall Team Championships (quarter-final) — at Trevose Golf Club Sunday, February 3

ALSO played on Sunday, again at Trevose, was the quarter-final of the scratch (no handicap) winter knockout.

Again Launceston took on West Cornwall with the usual foursomes matches in the morning and singles in the afternoon.

With only a halved match for Peter Dennis and Chris Turner out of the morning foursomes, it was always going to be an uphill battle in the singles for the North Cornwall side.

Although there were wins for county stalwart Richard Jasper and John (Harry) Harrison and another halved match for Chris Turner and the ninth single for Rob O’Neill, the West Cornwall team were too strong as they set up a last four date with Tehidy Park.

Reflecting on the day, Creber, said: “Finally I must mention our thanks to Trevose for giving up their course for most of the day for these two matches which certainly contributed to the support for the teams.”
