Golf: Preston 398s v. Ross A40s

The newly formed A40 Golf Society held it's inaugural golfing event at Monmouth Golf Club on Friday and Saturday.

Having moved to Ross-On-Wye from Preston, Lancashire in September 2005, A40 Captain, Andy Waldis had the idea for a 'Ryder Cup' style challenge against his former golfing mates from the 398 Golf Society.

Following several months of planning, the two teams of ten pitched themselves against each other over two fantastic days of matchplay golf, comprising nine hole Fourballs and nine hole Foursomes competitions on Friday, and eighteen holes Singles on the Saturday.

The final result was a victory for the A40's, winning by 12.5 points to 7.5.

Between the golf matches, a North v South skittles competition was held at The Barrel in Brookend Street on Friday evening. This resulted in a victory for the visitors from Preston. At the pre-match awards presentation, Andy said, 'I always said that success would be for everyone to enjoy the event, and for us to be invited up to Preston in 2008 for a rematch. Winning the competition was good but the fact that everyone had a great time was what I really wanted to achieve'.

Commenting on the event, 398 President John Morris said, 'The 398 Golf Society has been running for over twenty years and this is definitely one of the best events we've been to'.

Initial plans are now underway for next years event.
