The Victory Foursomes consists of 10 matchplay rounds against Golf Clubs from all over Wales. Paul & Josh will now play Henllys Golf Club (Beaumaris) at a neutral venue towards the end of this month.

Annodata National Team Matchplay Challenge

This year Clays Golf have two teams entered  into the Annodata National Matchplay Competition. Team A consisting of Mike Jones (Captain) Stephen Hart, Ian Connell, Don Wraight and Graham Davidson-Clarke played Church Stretton Golf Club (Away) winning 3-2. Weather was showery at Church Stretton and the course mountainous, a true test for all.

Clays Team B consisting of Paul Lloyd (Captain), Iwan Bonds, Gareth Roberts, Dave Riley and Patrick Mchugh, played Burslam Golf Club at home in their first match and won 4.5 – 0.5.

The best of luck to both teams in their next round! If you would like to get involved and represent the Clays Golf teams in matches and away competitions please email enquiries@claysgolf.co.uk and we will put your in touch with the relevant Captains.
