The annual friendly match between Herts U16 Boys and their Surrey counterparts was played last Saturday (June 29th) at Chobham GC and the match proved to be quite an ordeal from the word go, with the M25 at it's very worse with extended travel times.
The Surrey management and team were excellent hosts and the Chobham course was well presented with firm greens.
The teams played in strict handicap order and the results were little reflection on the standard of play in what was extremely tiring weather conditions with temperatures well above 30c. On the day half the matches finished on the eighteenth green.
The Hertfordshire boys proved the be the stronger team on the day winning 7 1/2 to 2 1/2 against a team that we had not beating in the last two outings.
