The final of the 2018 Ladies’ County Foursomes was held at Glen Gorse Golf Club on Sunday 2 September. 23 teams had entered this year’s competition and the two teams remaining to battle it out in the final were Birstall Golf Club and Kirby Muxloe Golf Club. We had a beautiful day, hardly any wind and not a cloud in the sky. Perfect golfing conditions!
Both matches were hard fought but Kirby Muxloe took an early lead and despite a valiant effort, Birstall were unable to catch them. In the end the first match finished with Kirby Muxloe three holes up and in the second match Kirby Muxloe finished 4 holes up. So, in the end, the overall result was 7 up to Kirby Muxloe Golf Club and they took the title of 2018 Ladies County Foursomes winners.
Congratulations to both teams for reaching the final and putting on some entertaining matches. Special congratulations go to Kirby Muxloe for their win (their last win was in 2009) and commiserations to the runners up Birstall.
Thank you to all of the spectators who turned out to support both teams and contributed to the success of the day, to Glen Gorse Golf Club for giving us courtesy of the course, and to our referees, Dorothy and Keith Jones of Lutterworth.
