The 1st team played their annual friendly against Worcestershrie & Herefordshire at Cosby Golf Club on Sunday 19th April. The team had a strong morning session taking the foursomes matches 3-1, however we couldnt capitalise in the afternoon singles matches loosing the session 6-2; leading to an overall match defeat 7-5.
The match provided an opportunity to bring some of the junior players into the team to gain valuable match experience, notably Olivia Barrs making a fine 1st team debut winning both her foursomes and singles matches to take maximum points on the day. Congratulations must also go to Briony Allen who secured a hole in one during her afternoon singles match on the par 3 8th!
