It was our turn to host this event against Essex and Cambridgeshire and as the holders of the wooden spoon we were determined to go one better than last year in the rain at St. Neots. Well, first of all we avoided the rain but we also missed the sun as it was a chilly May afternoon when we all set off to enjoy Knebworth which was looking in excellent condition. Essex, had to rejig their line up due to a fire on the M25 and road closure left several of their team running late but we were all relieved that everyone did safely make it eventually.

 Thankfully, back to a 2 tee start this year saw everyone round in a sensible time and we sat down for an excellent meal in good company as the scores were counted up. This is always a tight affair with all 15 scores from the members playing counting, along with the professional from the society captains home club. Whether it was a good omen or not but our professional Rob Leonard manged to beat his playing partners by 9 points. As the final totals were added up, Cambridgeshire scored a  good 497 points, which left Essex and Hertfordshire wondering who was heading for the wooden spoon and who was going to regain The Herve Cup. Well, the wait was over and Essex on 476 now hold the spoon and The Herve Cup is back in Hertfordshire with a total of 519. Another great performance from the society team, well done.
