Book your accommodation for Felixstowe for the National County Finals. Yesterday your county first team won the South Region County Match Week at Littlestone in Kent.
The finals are being played at Felixstowe Ferry GC Suffolk between ‘Monday 18th and Friday 22nd September. Another beautiful links course.
A final sunny day saw us play the host county on their home turf. The morning foursomes were the usual close matches with Hampshire coming from being down in all three matches at one stage to eventually win 2 1/2 – 1/2.
In the afternoon needing 2 1/2 to win overall we managed 4 1/2 giving us a final score of 7. This meant that Hampshire having won all four matches during the week could not be beaten, cue celebrations for everyone in pale blue.
I will eventually write a longer report for those interested but thank you to all those of you who sent cards, ( we had over 20) who managed to come to support us, who sent emails, followed us on Facebook, or were with us just in spirit. It is encouraging to know that so many in Hampshire are following the progress of the team.
But mainly congratulations to Aimee, Adrian, Danielle, Kerry, Kelly, Georgie, Emma, Louise, Julie and Di. You were the stars!
A very happy Hampshire County Captain.
