Basset Down Seniors played their final match of the season at home against Westonbirt Golf Club on Thursday 17th August. The home venue was very much to Basset Down’s advantage. The final result of the match was a win for Basset Down by 3 1/2 matches to 1 1/2. This meant that Basset Down managed to maintain their unbeaten home record for this season. A big thank you to all seniors who have played this year and look forward to next year. - Graham Short

On Sunday July 16th a team of 4 pairs from Basset Down played an away match versus Chippenham in our third Buthlay Cup match of the season.
Our first two pairs lost their matches with our third winning so 2 matches to 1 in favour of Chippenham and 5 holes down overall.
It all came down to the final pair given holes up or down being critical in the overall league standings and our final pairing of Bryan Stockwell and Dan Conneely managed a superb 8 hole win securing us the overall win and bonus point.
Top of the league but Erlestoke away to come on 6th August.
