President's Trophy

Merlin will make their first ever appearance in a county final after they overcame Falmouth 5-4 in a thrilling President's Trophy semi-final at Carlyon Bay on Sunday.

They got off to the perfect start with Rob Hall and Ben Crossley winning the top two matches against Paul Evans (2&1) and Scott Pedlar (3&2) respectively. But Falmouth hit back to win the next two singles, George Popperwell defeating Nigel Pryor 5&4 and Crispen Merritt beating Adrian Steele 3&2.

The next match between Ricky Hughes (Merlin) and Ben Browning was halved before Dave Osgood edged Merlin back into the lead with a 3&2 win over Neil Dickinson. But this was cancelled out by James Scott's one hole defeat by Tristan Gurd.

With match score level, the final two games were to prove decisive. Merlin's Cary Clark and Carl Burley had both been three down at the turn, but they fought back brilliantly to clinch their side's place in the final.

At the 17th Clark took a one hole lead over Nick Chinn courtesy of the shot of the day, a low draw under the trees, for an unlikely par. He also won the last for good measure to secure his side's place in the final as Burley, in the last match, was already certain of a half as he stood one up on the 18th tee against Paul Collins.

In the final at Perranporth on March 16, Merlin will face holders Bowood Park, who romped to an 8-1 victory over China Fleet in the other semi-final at St Enodoc

Course Update

The storms now appear to be dispersing (hopefully) and the course has held up extremely well considering the amount of rainfall we have had over the past month. In the 2 weeks over xmas and new year we had in excess of 200mm and the course was closed far less than in previous years.

We still plan to construct new drains on the 10th and possibly the 1st. I'm hoping to tie these in with the reconstruction of the 7th tee as soon as conditions permit the digger to work on the course without causing unnecessary damage.

We will also be growing the rough in to the left hand side of the 17th tee, hopefully this will encourage people to use the other safer side of the tee.

See you soon
