Congratulations to Sussex who become first time winners of the inter-county competition in it’s 16th year.
Monday 9th – Wednesday 11th August at Puttenham Golf Club, Surrey
Gemma Burgess claims runner up spot in English U16 Girls’ Championships at Morecambe.
It was more of a grey, gloomy Eeyore sort of day for the Junior & Intermediate Championships at Basingstoke. However, while the sun didn’t make an appearance, the future of ladies’ golf in Hampshire definitely looks bright.
“It’s a very blustery day today Pooh”, said Piglet. Boy did the wind blow but there wasn’t a cloud in the sky and with the course in fantastic condition, Royal Winchester was a magnificent setting for our first competitive event in 2021.
Emma Allen rounds off an excellent week with a win at the inaugural Intermediate Championship, Gemma Burgess retains her Junior Championship title and Junior Captain, Izzy Lawson secures silver ware as our nett winner. Meanwhile, Connie Evans wins at her first Hampshire event, the Douglas Cup.
What better way to end the 2019 season than with a spot of Top Golf…and you’ll never guess who was in the next bay…only Dame Laura Davies!! Once Laura had finished on the range, she was kind enough to take a few photos with us all and took the time to find out more about the girls and how they were progressing. Kudos to Hannah Dymott for getting Dame Laura to do the infamous Hampshire pose!!
I’m delighted to say that it’s been another fantastic year for Hampshire’s Junior Girls. For those of you who are members of our Junior Facebook page you will have seen the steady stream of wins, handicap cuts and a myriad of other outstanding achievements for club and county that have been posted throughout the year but there are just a few that I would like to highlight.
After heavy overnight rain, we were all thankful that our junior girls were met with glorious sunshine on the first tee at Meon Valley for this year’s Autumn Meeting. Fourteen girls from across the county gathered to take part in the final competition of what has been an excellent 2019 season.
A huge well done to all the girls who took part in the Junior Championship and Douglas Cup at Lee-on-the-Solent Golf Club on Sunday 14th July.
