The TAMS played their last Home Inter Club Match of the season today Tuesday 16th October when they played a re-arranged match against Hintelsham Golf Club
It was a glorious day and our visitors, making their first visit to the Club, were impressed with the Course and the meal provided afterwards
Brett Vale TAMS kept up their winning form and their 100% Home record with a sound 5 – 3 victory
The five winning pairings were led by TAMS Captain Maurice Eccles who playing with Nigel Hanham were in impressive form winning 7 & 6
Neville Proctor & Stephen Gooday were also in fine form and recording a further 7 & 6 victory
Paul Jennings & John Barnett won by the large margin of 5 & 3
The final two wins were much closer with Keith Armes & Barry Root leaving it late to take the lead for the first time in the match on the 17th and to hold on for a 1 up victory
Brig Archer & Peter Orrin gained a four hole lead at the halfway stage but a late rally from the visitors was not quite good enough and they also won by one up
The TAMS have now completed 24 Inter Club matches for the season and have won 17 drew 2 and lost 5
They have won all 12 matches at fortress Brett Vale with 5 victories 2 draws and 5 defeats at the away venues
With the success of todays first match with Hintelsham GC the TAMS will now be playing an extra away return fixture at Hintelsham on 22nd November
Well done to Maurice & Malcolm and all the TAMS who have taken part during an outstanding season


The TAMS played their annual Championship over two days – Thursday 9th & Tuesday 14th August 2018
The competition is played as a Qualifier on both days Strokeplay from the Yellow Marker posts
The first round saw an exception Net 61 by Iain Scottt giving him an early advantage with David Boast on net 65, closely followed by Alan Finach & Peter Webber both on net 66
However it is always difficult in this format to keep the consistancy over the two days and many of the first round leaders faltered
The early second round pace was set by Andrew Burl with a further exceptional net 61 but his first round score was never enough to trouble the eventual leader-board
It was Malcolm Lamond who set the first serious challenge with a second round net 65 to follow his first round 71 and to elevate him into the eventual third place with a total net 136
Paul Ansell proved the most consistant over the two days and a second round net 67 to add to his first round 68 saw him into second place with a total net 135
However despite a nervous second round score of net 73 the overnight leader Iain Scott was able to just hang on to first place after his first round net 61 to win by just one shot with a total net score of 134
Well done to the winners, to all of the 60 plus TAMS who took part over the two days and thanks to Keith Ribbans for recording all the scores and handicap amendments
