Saffron Walden Golf Club's at their scratch league match with Brampton Park


Saffron Walden Golf Club started the County Scratch League season with a 4-2 win at a strong Brampton Park team.

A pile-up on the A14 meant Walden players only just got to the course in time, with the first pairing of Brookes and Adair fighting back from an early deficit before eventually losing one down on the last.

Goodman and Frazer carded birdies on the first and 11th, with a superb 15-foot par putt on the 12th by Goodman seeing them four up with six to play.

Their Brampton rivals fought back strongly to win the 14th, 15th and 17th holes, to cut the lead to a single hole going up the last, but Walden won after a half on the 18th.

Martin only just made it to the first tee in time to partner Southall, but hit a stunning three wood into the middle of the fairway.

And after taking an early lead the Walden duo never looked back to claim a two-up win.
