FLAG 50’s continue in fine form!!
12 young girl golfers joined Organiser Julie Hunt at Kibworth yesterday for the second round of the year!
On the shortened course they all played really well and used their 50 shots to fine effect!
Supported and helped by an adult in each group (many of them parents or grandparents!) they all swung their way to the 7th hole – and some even made it to the 8th!! The winner on the day was April Brown who got to the 8th green!! Well done to April, Emily , Elexis and Jessie who came 1st, 2nd 3rd and 4th respectively.
The winner of the Putting Competition was Isabella Wilkinson – with only 10 shots – wow!
Here’s to the next round at Birstall on Monday 31st July at11am
See you there girls!!

1st Team Friendly vs Warwickshire
Today saw the start of the 1st teams friendly season with the match against Warwickshire at The Leicestershire Golf Club and after a week of changeable weather the teams were treated to sunny and calm(ish) conditions.
The foursomes session was lead out by County Champion, Caz Parkes-Walley, and Jo Mayfield followed by 2016 County Champion, Ellie York, and Imogen Huxley, with County Captain, Gemma Parkes-Walley, and vice Captain, Cath Arter, last but not least.
The matches provided the opportunity to test some new pairings in the run up to inter-county week, however all 3 pairings were up against a strong and experienced Warwickshire team resulting in a 3-0 loss.
In the afternoon singles there was a change in fortune for Caz, Jo, Immy and Gem who won their matches 4&3, 2&1, 6&5, and 1up respectively. Alas, this wasnt quite enough to overturn the mornings session and the result went Warwickshires way 5-4.
The squad has a weekend off before teaming up again on Sunday 4th at Kirby Muxloe Golf Club against Worcestershire & Hereford.
