2015 CHALLEGE MATCH 2nd LEG


The long awaited 2nd Leg of the Annual Match between

Lancashire and Cheshire has been contested!


The format:

Four Ball Better Ball FULL HANDICAP Points.

Each pairing's points total added to give a total team score.

These were added to those of the 1st Leg

Prizes were presented for the best scores for each team on the day and to the winning "shire".



The sun shone down and the wind blew at

Wirral Ladies' Golf Course on Wednesday 7th October 2015.

(Was it the "wind of change" in favour of Lancashire?)

Only 5 points seperated the teams following the 1st Leg so all was to play for.

The scoring from both teams was of the highest standard and mostly in the 40's but ....


for the first time, the young pretenders from Lancashire proved too strong

for the valiant efforts of the Cheshire Team.

Could this be a new era of dominance for Lancashire?

There is no doubt that Cheshire will regroup and come

out in full force in 2016 to regain what they believe to be theirs!


Seriously, congratulations to ALL who took part.

Although Lancashire left with the Trophy,

we all left as winners in friendship.


The AMMGCC would like to extend it's continued appreciation

to Wirral Ladies' Golf Club for the use of its facilities,

the greenstaff for the wonderful presentation of the course

and the clubhouse staff and catering for the hospitality shown to us throughout the day.


Roll on 2016!

2014 - Completed


Well, gentlemen, that was 2014.

We must give a great deal of thanks to The Captain of Captains Mr John Roddy,

his helpers and the catering staff of Park Golf Club for the hospitality shown to the Association

in their Centenary year.

We appreciate, immensely, all their hard work and friendship throughout.

Congratulations and well done!


It goes without saying that the events take a great deal of organisation

and time which we all sometimes take for granted.

The Association Committee have worked tirelessly to ensure that the year's events have gone

according to plan, for which they also must be congratulated.

It's been many years since I played the course.

The improvements that have been made have added to its prowess

as one of the finest Municipal golf courses in the North West of England,

providing a fair test for golfers of all abilities. The Greenstaff are thanked and commended.


Please email me with any comments or additions you may like to be included in the website.

I hope you all have a peaceful and relaxing Christmas and are looking forward to next year.
