2022 Baxter Trophy Final

LRLCGA Noticeboard : 2022 Baxter Trophy Final

Over the last two Sundays some excellent mixed foursomes golf has been played at Scraptoft Golf Club, as 39 pairs from across Leicestershire and Rutland competed for the prestigious Baxter Trophy.   This year one of the pairs competing and representing Luffenham Heath Golf Club were brother and sister Chris and Sally Jee, grandchildren of Alex Baxter who founded the competition at Kirby Muxloe in 1985.  Alex herself played off 4 and was County Champion twice.

The weather was fantastic for both days of competition and the course was in excellent condition with some tricky pin positions, particularly on the qualifying day.   The four qualifying semi finalists from the first week were Paul Jelly and Emily Blount (Kibworth), Scott Adams and Joanne Morris (Willesley Park), Andy Mee and Diana Miller (Lingdale), and Steve Sansome and Claire Bailey (Birstall).

In the first semi final Birstall narrowly beat Kibworth (2 and 1) and in the second Lingdale beat Willesley Park (3 and 2) to set up a final between Birstall and Lingdale.  This was closely fought but Lingdale proved to be the more consistent pair beating Birstall 4 and 3 and winning the Baxter Trophy.

Thanks to Scraptoft Golf Club for hosting the competition and to the referees Phil Askew and Angela Allington. Congratulations to all those players who reached the semi finals and particular congratulations to the eventual winners Andy Mee and Diana Miller, representing Lingdale Golf Club.

Other prizes from the Qualifying Day were:

Best Gross - Paul Jelly and Emily Blount (Kibworth) Gross 74

Best Nett - Jed Davies and Sharon Statham (Cosby) Nett 69

Second Nett  - David Eden and Paula Shaw (Whetstone) Nett 72
