Congratulations to our new County Champion, Georgie Mundy. A great final between Kerry & Georgie, which was close all the way. Full report and more pictures to follow shortly.
Thursday 18th May
Everyone arrived early this morning ready to start play on whichever hole they finished on yesterday. Head Greenkeeper Kevin Glass sounded the klaxon at 8.00am and play started.
Some excellent gross scores came in early on as the Championship players completed the one qualifying round before the matchplay round commenced at 11.30 am.
Kerry had a couple of birdies on her way to a par 72 and Aimee had 4 birdies starting 2,5,2 on the back nine finishing on 1 over. Georgie also had 4 birdies in her 73 and Kelly was not to be left out with a couple of birdies too.
The sun almost shone as the Challenge Salver and Bowl players completed their first rounds in the matchplay competitions and after the draw was made, Kerry Smith and Jill England were first out again.
The lovely, still, dry conditions tried to give way to misty rain at about 3pm and the temperature has dropped several degrees but still the weather is being good to players and spectators alike.
The last two quarter finals in the Championship went to the 18th and 19th with Aimee and Danielle winning through and they were the last to tee off again at 4pm.
With the last match finishing at 6.45 pm Kerry, Kelly, Georgie and Aimee will contest the semi-finals tomorrow morning.
