Thursday 15th July 2021 - Leicestershire & Rutland v Lincolnshire at Stoke Rochford Golf Club

Thursday 15th July 2021 - Leicestershire & Rutland v Lincolnshire at Stoke Rochford Golf Club

 

 This was our first away match of the season against Lincolnshire at Stoke Rochford Golf Club, and we were hopeful of an improved result from the previous week's result at Glen Gorse. On arrival at Stoke Rochford, we were all expecting a hot and sunny day – it didn’t quite work out like that! We began under cloudy skies and a cool breeze, with the sun making an appearance toward the end of the afternoon singles. The course looked in great condition, and with fast, tricky greens, it was going to be a real test of golf.

Alison Smith and Fiona Sharman led the way, followed by our two juniors, Sasha Weightman and Aimee Cleminson, who was making her senior county debut, with Diana Miller and Aisling Dekonski bringing up the rear. Alison and Fiona lost, Sasha and Aimee halved their match, and Diana and Aisling won, to leave the match all square at the lunchtime break.

With everything still to play for, we set out in the singles full of confidence. Unfortunately, Lincolnshire found their ‘A’ games after lunch, and we only managed 1 point from the 6 matches. Fiona Sharman won 3&2 to prevent a clean sweep for Lincs.

 

The overall result was a 6.5-2.5 win for Lincolnshire.

Wednesday July 2021 - Leicestershire & Rutland v Lincolnshire at Glen Gorse Golf Club

Wednesday 7th July 2021 - Leicestershire & Rutland v Lincolnshire at Glen Gorse Golf Club

 

 Our first match of the season was at home against Lincolnshire at Glen Gorse Golf Club. The weather forecast was a bit concerning with thunderstorms due after lunch, however we managed to get away lightly with a couple of showers and rumbles of thunder. A dry and sunny, but rather humid start for the morning foursomes, with a short shower thrown in for good measure, followed by sun for the afternoon singles. Luckily, just as the final match came off the course, the heavens opened! The course was in great condition along with some tricky pin positions on fast greens. It was certainly a day for staying out of the rough though – it was brutal!

 

We had a mixed start in the opening morning foursomes matches. Clare Bailey and Katie Underwood lost 3&1, Alison Smith and debutant Lisa Porter won4&3, and Fiona Sharman partnering Sasha Weightman who was making her senior county debut, halved their match.

Match all square at the lunchtime break.

 

 It was all to play for in the afternoon singles, however results didn’t quite go our way. With some of the Lincolnshire players upping their games, they made very formidable opponents and unfortunately we couldn’t quite come away with the points needed to secure victory. Our ladies fought right to the end, but despite 2 emphatic wins from Katie Underwood and Helen Perry – both winning 5&4, the overall result went Lincolnshire’s way and the final score was Leicestershire & Rutland 3.5 - Lincolnshire 5.5.

 

All of the matches were played in good spirit, and despite the result, the girls are already looking for revenge at the return fixture on 15th July at Stoke Rochford Golf Club.

Thursday 8th August 2019 - Leicestershire & Rutland v Nottinghamshire at Willesley Park Golf Club

 

This was our final match of the season against Nottinghamshire at Willesley Park Golf Club and the outcome of this match would determine the overall league winners. Based upon the previous match results, Leicestershire & Rutland needed to win by 4 points to qualify for the MIdlands North Regional Finals. It was going to be tough!

 

The course was in superb condition and the weather made for some very hot golfers. Hydration was the word of the day!

 

Leicestershire & Rutland ladies played some excellent golf in the morning foursomes and secured a 2-1 lead to set us up for the afternoon singles. Sally Lax (Market Harborough and Alison Smith (Rothley) won 2 up, Cath Arter (Rothley) and Fiona Sharman (Luffenham Heath) won 6&5, but Barbara Suffolk (Lingdale) and Karen Bonser (Willesley) lost 2 down.

 

The afternoon singles matches were fiercely contested and could have gone in either county's favour. All of the ladies played some fantastic golf and, as always, showed a great team spirit throughout. Sally Lax and Fiona Sharman both took their matches to the 18th hole, but finished on the wrong side of a result, losing 2 down. Barbara Suffolk who had been struggling with a back injury also lost. Cath Arter won her match 4&3, Alison Smith won 3&2, and Karen Bonser also won 3&2. Unfortunately, we could only manage 3 points from the 6 available, which meant that despite the overall win, we just missed out on winning the league which was won by Nottinghamshire.

 

Overall result : Leicestershire & Rutland 5 - Nottinghamshire 4.

 

Good luck to Nottinghamshire in the Midlands North Regional Final at Walsall Golf Club on Monday 2nd September.

Thursday 1st August 2019 - Leicestershire & Rutland v Lincolnshire at Luffenham Heath Golf Club

 

This was our first home match of the season against Lincolnshire in the return fixture at Luffenham Heath Golf Club. After losing our first two fixtures, we knew that a win was needed to keep us in contention for a place in the finals.

Once again we struck lucky with the weather. A beautiful sunny and very warm day welcomed us to Luffenham, and as always, the course was in excellent condition. Leicestershire & Rutland ladies played some excellent golf in the morning foursomes and went into the lunch break 3-0 up. Alison Smith (Rothley) and Clare Bailey (Birstall) won 3&2, Alison Horak (Ullesthorpe) and Sue Holwell (Lingdale) won 4&3, and our two juniors making their senior county debuts, Vicky Mayfield (Rothley) and Francesca Brimm (Glen Gorse) won 4&3.

 

The afternoon singles began with everyone in confident mood. All matches were all closely contested with half of them going to the 18th hole. Again, the youngsters led the way. Vicky Mayfield secured a half and Francesca Brimm won her match 3&1. The two Alisons - Smith and Horak  unfortunately lost their matches, but Clare Bailey and Karen Bonser (Willesley) went all the way to 18 to secure two half points.

 

This gave us our first win of the season with an overall result of Leicestershire & Rutland 5.5 - Lincolnshire 3.5.

Monday 15th July 2019 - Leicestershire & Rutland v LIncolnshire at Stoke Rochford Golf Club

 

This was our second away match of the season against Lincolnshire at Stoke Rochford Golf Club, and we were hopeful of an improved result from the previous week's result at Nottinghamshire. On arrival at Stoke Rochford, the sun was out and the temperature was already rising. It was going to be another hot one! The course was in great condition with fast, receptive greens, and we set out in the morning foursomes full of hope.

Sally Lax and Katie Underwood led the way, followed by Clare Bailey and Helen Perry, with Captain Sue Holwell and Karen Bonser bringing up the rear. Unfortunately, both Sally and Katie, and Clare and Helen lost, but Sue and Karen won, leaving us trailing 2-1 at the lunchtime break.

With everything still to play for, we set out in the afternoon singles full of confidence. All of the games were very close and with the increasing temperatures out on the course, everyone found the going very tough. Three of the matches went to the 18th and could have gone either way. Katie, Helen and Cath Arter didn't quite get the results, with Cath losing to a chip-in from the rough on the 17th. Clare and Sue managed to halve their matches, and Sally finished off in style on 18 by chipping in to win her match.

The overall result was a 6-3 win for Lincolnshire.

Thank you to all my players for playing, especially 1st Team Captain Cath for stepping in at the last minute.

Our next outing is on Thursday 1st August at Luffenham Heath Golf Club for the return fixture against Lincolnshire.
