Putting the green to bed

A group of members got together a couple of weeks ago to help David prepare the green for Winter.

On a busy Saturday, we spread top dressing, seeded, fertilised, and top dressed again, before Ken brushed everything in. The best part was finishing before the heavens opened!

Thanks to all who turned out, and here are a few photos.

Smile for the camera!

A great finish to the Knaphill Triples

In a storming year, Merrow finished third in our section of the Thursday Knaphill Triples. We were generally up against strong opposition, as witnessed by the scores for the two clubs that finished above us in the league. You can see the results on the League Tables section of the website. In previous years, we have not done as well, so this season’s result is a great credit to captain John and his merry band.

Compared to the other leagues that Merrow compete in, the Knaphill Triples is a fairly new competition for us. We take part as it is the only league that permits a mixed team to play, thus giving our very talented ladies a chance to shine.

We plan to continue in the league next season, so be sure to put your names down when we get underway in 2020. Onwards and upwards!

Get ready!
