Llanfairfechan GC Level Play

A three-player Chester Centurions team travelled to Llanfairfechan on Thursday, 16 May, to play a golf croquet level play league match. The day started bright and sunny with a slightly chilly sea breeze. Llanfairfechan opened the nine-game match with a strong win but the succeeding games were all very close and neither side managed to open a convincing gap. By lunchtime Llanfairfechan led by 5 games to 4 and an ominous mist started to shroud the Welsh mountains. And then the rain came down. In the wet afternoon session Chester edged ahead by winning some very close games and as the last game started were in the lead by 9 games to 8. That last game was played in a cold drizzle and was won by the closest of margins by Llanfairfechan to close the match at a 9 to 9 draw – a fitting score for two well balanced teams.

Croquet is definitely an energetic game
