The Senior Scratch team took on Kent at Woking Golf Club on Thursday, 11th May in the first match of this year's South Region Senior Scratch league for the Mulligan Larsen Trophy. Senior Scratch Captain, Belinda Pope, sent the following report:
Our Senior Scratch team of Maggie Lowe, Belinda Pope, Gillian Brooks, Jackie Kingswell, Susie Lee and Suzie Dawes took on a very strong Kent team, who had already beaten Sussex (usually the strongest team, for those that don’t know) and who’d come for a practice round the day before - clearly we had them worried!!
We got round in the dry somehow and the course was looking lovely, if a little slow for Woking (no surprise after all the rain we’ve had!) and putting was tough on the slopey greens. We very nearly pulled off a half but sadly we came second, losing 4-2.
Congratulations to Gillian on her first match for the seniors and thanks go to the team for turning out and giving it their all, to Susie Lee for the delicious muffins and to my predecessors Scynthia and Fiona Horrocks for securing a great venue for the match where we were warmly welcomed and treated very well.
Our next challenge is away to Essex at Chigwell on the May 25th – I’m sure you all join me in wishing the team best of luck!
