The qualifying round of the Baxter Trophy took place at Lutterworth Golf Club on Sunday 7th October. 41 teams from 21 Clubs entered the competition this year. It was a lovely sunny autumn day for the players and a welcome change from the rain of the previous day. There were some good scores returned, including a number that required a certain amount of count back calculation to separate them and determine the placings. In the end the four qualifiers for the matchplay semi finals and finals, due to be held in two weeks time at Lutterworth Golf Club are as follows:
Charles Ray and Gemma Parkes-Walley - Lutterworth - Gross 75 (on count back)
Martin Anderson and Moira Page - Glen Gorse - Gross 75
John Fairbrother and Rachel East - Cosby - Gross 77 (on count back)
Clayton Turner and Jo Morris - Willesley Park - Gross 77
Best Gross prize went to Charles Ray and Gemma Parkes-Walley of Lutterworth (on count back) with a gross score of 75
1st nett prize went to Lee Wenlock and Helen Milner of Market Harborough with a gross of 81-10.5 = 70.5 nett
2nd nett prize went to Matt Reeves and Sally Sparrow of Ullesthorpe with a gross of 79-8 = 71 (on count back)
