Annual Celts vs Sassenachs 2019

Celts vs Sassenachs 2019

On January 26th, Ferndown Golf Club hosted the members annual Celts vs Sassenachs match.

The annual Celts vs Sassenachs have seen some great matches over the years, but 2019 lived up to the expectation of being one of the best yet!

One day; 68 Players, 34 Pairs, 2 Teams led by Team captains Jim Sprint (Celts) and Danny Sullivan (Sassenachs)

Throughout the day great golf was displayed, however some exceptional golf from Lee Burton & Alan Stone winning their match 5&4 (Sass), Roger Sullivan & Gary Tomlinson winning 5&4 (Sass), and finally, Rob Cure and Martyn Jones winning 6&5! (Sass). However, it was all to no avail as the Celts pulled through winning 9 1/2 to 7 1/2!

It was a great day followed by a wonderful evening which included a traditional piper leading in the haggis for a traditional ‘Burns’ address. Our Club Professional James Wilson also joined in with full Scottish dress.

We look forward to next year and resumption of the friendly rivalry!!
