I n match 1 there was a comfortable win for Charlie Carpenter leading the way for Tall Pines against Tom Hurst. There was a similar victory for Wayne Black (The Mendip) over Jake Thompson in the second match. At the back of the field Ian Hall secured another point for The Mendip beating Steve Baker 3/1 and in the final match, The Mendip skipper Dave Cox lost out to Nick Annison 4/2. So with the score tied at 2-2 , everything rested on the shoulders of the Tall Pines captain Bill Mather up against Liam Copp. Bill was 1 up as they came to the 18th where a brave half saw Tall Pines home by the narrowest of margins.

Congratulations to both teams on a well fought match played in a great spirit. As the sun set, Bill Mather received the Pickeridge Bowl from SGU President Tony Mason in front of the Clubhouse.

The 2019 Final took place at Weston-Super-Mare GC on Saturday the 12th of October. Originally listed at Wells GC the venue had to move due to flooding. The Mendip accepted the match but would you believe it 2” of rain overnight on Friday left the course on the hill under water! Step in Ben, the W-S-M professional who was able and willing to move a few tee bookings and provide a starting slop for the final knockout final of 2019.

So with fixtures and courses being closed all over the Country due to exceptional rain fall our host venue was one of the very few courses were play was possible and although much rain had fallen over the seaside links the underfoot conditions were remarkably dry and the course was in very good condition indeed.

Clevedon were looking to win their 3rd major Somerset Golf Union Trophy  of the year following victories in the Somerset Bowl and Trounson Trophy. Enmore were seeking back to back wins and return the Pickeridge bowl to their clubs trophy cabinet.

As the weather remained dry the match outcome began to favour Enmore. As the final match passed through the 10th  green Clevedon were up against it. With Enmore 3-1 up the last match on the course shared the honours to see Enmore Park regain the Pickeridge Bowl by 3.5 to 1.5.

Individual Results; Jack Dray won 6/5 v Steve Jones Donnie Crook won 1up v James Chalonor Ryan Brewer halved v Adam Williams Craig Lazenby lost 1 down v Chris Tucker Taylor Stote won 5/4 v George Cowse.

Well done both teams and a special thank you to Ben and Weston-Super-Mare GC.
