Foursomes Championships – Monday 11th April – South Winchester GC

The kick off to the 2022 season saw a splendid field of 36 teams from Hampshire Clubs arrive at a blowy South Winchester golf course.

The watery sunshine brightened the course and players arrived in skorts and shorts to take on the course. We had some late drop outs because of the dreaded Covid however it was a real privilege to be able to stage an HLG competition under relatively ‘normal’ conditions. The conditions were tricky for all however some good scores were returned.

The Championship Winners were Kerry Smith from Waterlooville GC and Diane Oram from Basingstoke GC with an excellent gross 81 and the Best Nett winners were Debbie Burrell and Sue Gale, both from Weybrook Park GC with a nett 69.

The following are the rest of the winners :-

3rd Nett – Lorraine Morgan and Jane Fenner from South Winchester GC with a nett 74

4th Gross – Emma Higgins and Samantha Gregory from Brokenhurst GC with a gross 86 on CB

2nd Nett – Karen Fox and Polly Church from Alresford GC with a nett 72 on CB
