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.
The Hampshire Junior Girls’ Autumn Meeting took place at Peterfield Golf Club on Saturday 17th October and what a great end to the season it was.
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.
The excitement is mounting as the first event of the Justin Rose Ladies Series comes to Hampshire tomorrow at the lovely New Forest course of Brokenhurst Manor Golf Club (BMGC). The start sheet can be found here – and includes our own Hampshire Girls’ Squad coach Georgie Mundy, from Winchester Golf Academy.
The month of May saw a different talent emerging from our girls in Hampshire. With the lockdown still in place due to the Coronavirus pandemic, and it looking a while before getting out on the golf course again, we decided to try and keep spirits up and stay connected as a team, by setting a Golf Themed Bake Off challenge.
With the Covid-19 lockdown well and truly underway, it was obvious that our Hampshire girls were already missing the routine of regular coaching sessions, and it was therefore vital to ensure our girls stay connected, and remain focused on their fitness and wellbeing during this unusual time.
