Sunday 5th August 2018 - Leicestershire & Rutland v Lincolnshire at Market Rasen Golf Club

LEICESTERSHIRE & RUTLAND LADIES COUNTY 2nd TEAM REPORT 4

 

Sunday 5th August 2018 - Leicestershire & Rutland v Lincolnshire at Market Rasen Golf Club

 

This was our final match of the season against Lincolnshire at Market Rasen Golf Course and the outcome of this match would determine the overall league winners. Based upon the previous match results Leicestershire & Rutland needed a half or a win to qualify for the Midlands North regional Finals.

 

Leicestershire & Rutland fielded a strong side Cath Arter (Rothley), Clare Bailey (Birstall), Rachel East (Cosby), Alison Horak (Ullesthorpe), Sally Lax (Market Harbourgh), Alison Smith (Rothley) and Barbara Suffolk (Lingdale). All of the players had represented the 2nd team in previous matches throughout the season and were united as a squad.

 

The course was in superb condition and proved to be a very good test of golf, with some interesting holes which overlooked the racecourse. The weather conditions were also testing with temperatures reaching 29 degrees.

 

Leicestershire & Rutland ladies played some excellent golf in the morning foursomes games and secured a 2- 1 lead to set us up for the singles. Cath Arter and Alison Smith won 3&2, Clare Bailey & Rachel East won 1up and Alison Horak & Barbara Sulfolk lost 1down.

 

The afternoon singles matches were all very close after the front 9 holes and lots of matches could have gone in either county’s favour. All of the ladies played some tremendous golf and showed great team spirit and comaradary. The first two matches both went to the 18th hole, one match went to Lincolnshire and one went to Leicestershire & Rutland. Barbara Suffolk lost 2down and Sally Lax won 1up. Cath Arter out third, lost to a very talented up and coming junior, Courtney Martland. Clare Bailey won 4&3 to make the score 4-3 to Leicestershire & Rutland with two matches left out on the course. We needed to win one of the last two matches to win the game and the league. Rachel East was one up playing the 17th and managed to win the hole to secure a win for the team. Alison Horak fought well in the final match and played some great golf but unfortunately lost. All of the matches were played in great spirit and the final score was Leicestershire & Rutland 5 and Lincolnshire 4. 

 

A fantastic result for Leicestershire & Rutland, not only did they win the match, they have also won the League and will represent the area in the Midlands North Regional Final on Thursday 30th August 2018 at Rothley Golf Course. The last time Leicestershire & Rutland qualified was in 2012, when Moira Page was County 2nd team Captain and this year she is our County President.

LEICESTERSHIRE & RUTLAND LADIES COUNTY 2nd TEAM REPORT 3

 

Monday 30th July 2018 - Leicestershire & Rutland v Nottinghamshire at Radcliffe on Trent Golf Club

 

This was our first away match of the season against Nottinghamshire at Radcliffe on Trent Golf course and as a team we knew that all three counties were in contention for winning the league. However, we needed a win to keep us in the running.

 

Once again the weather was beautiful and the course was in excellent condition. Leicestershire & Rutland ladies played some excellent golf in the morning foursomes games and secured a 2- 1 lead to set us up for the singles. Cath Arter (Rothley) & Alison Horak (Ullesthorpe) won 2&1, Karen Bonser (Willesley) & Rachel East (Cosby) won 3&2 and Olivia Barrs & Barbara Sulfolk (Lingdale) lost.

 

The afternoon singles matches got off to a fantastic start with the first two matches both finishing on the 15th hole, Cather Arter and Karen Bonser both won 4&3 to increase Leicestershire & Rutlands lead to 4-1.

News of the two wins and the score rippled through the remaining matches and raised both the spirits and the performances of the remaining players. Rachel East secured a 2&1 win, and the last 3 matches all went down to the 18th, Barabara Sulfolk won 1up, Olivia Barrs lost 1 down and Alison Horak battled hard for a halve.

 

The final score was Leicestershire & Rutland 6.5 and Nottinghamshire 2.5. All of the Leicestershire & Rutland Ladies played some fantastic golf to secure a great win, which has put Leicestershire & Rutland in a good position of contention for our final match against Lincolnshire on Sunday 5th August.

Sunday 15th July 2018 - Leicestershire & Rutland v Nottinghamshire at Rothley Golf Club

LEICESTERSHIRE & RUTLAND LADIES COUNTY 2nd TEAM REPORT 2

 

Sunday 15th July 2018 - Leicestershire & Rutland v Nottinghamshire at Rothley Golf Club

 

At the beginning of the week I was becoming increasingly concerned about this match, as England were in the semi-finals of the World Cup the first time in 28 years. There was speculation about what would happen if England were in the final. Which was going to clash with our match. However, England were unsuccessful and the Leicestershire & Rutland v Nottinghamshire match at Rothley Park Golf Club could continue as planned. 

 

The weather was once again very hot and humid; the course was in fantastic condition considering how dry it had been. We got off to a great start in the morning foursomes, all three matches were incredibly tight and all were decided on the 18th green but they all went in Leicestershire’s favour. The pairs were very strong and fought hard to secure 2.5 points. Sue Holwell & Barbara Suffolk (Lingdale) won 1up, Cath Arter & Alison Smith (Rothley) halved and Clare Bailey & Katie Underwood (Birstall) won 1up. 

 

We all went into the afternoon singles feeling very positive, again the matches were very close with the possibility of every match going either way. Half of the matches went to the 18th hole. 

Leicestershire & Rutland played excellent golf and secured 4.5 points out of 6 in the singles to achieve an overall result Leicestershire & Rutland 7 - Nottinghamshire 2. 

 

I am very proud to report that Cath Arter (Rothley & L&RLCGA Captain) halved her foursomes match in the morning with Alison Smith and won her singles in the afternoon to secure 6 points, successfully achieving her 2nd team County colours. 

 

A great day for sport, Djokovic won the men’s Wimbledon final, France won the football World Cup, Brandon Stone won the Scottish open and Leicestershire & Rutland’s Ladies 2nd team had a fantastic win over Nottinghamshire. Well done to all who played.

Sunday 8th July 2018 - Leicestershire & Rutland v Lincolnshire at Lingdale Golf Club

LEICESTERSHIRE & RUTLAND LADIES COUNTY 2nd TEAM REPORT 1

 

Sunday 8th July 2018 - Leicestershire & Rutland v Lincolnshire at Lingdale Golf Club

 

Our first match of the season was at home against Lincolnshire at Lingdale Golf Course. The weather was beautiful, the sun was shining and the ball was running well. The course was in great condition with good receptive greens. 

We felt extremely positive inspired by England’s successful run in the World Cup. We had a very strong start in the opening morning foursomes matches. Alison Smith and Alison Horak lost, Karen Bonser and Rachel East won, and Sue Holwell and Barbara Suffolk both Lingdale members won to give Leicestershire & Rutland a 2-1 lead. 

 

The afternoon singles were very close and nail biting, half of the matches were decided on the 18th green and the final result could have gone either way. Our ladies fought hard to secure 2 halves but unfortunately one match swung in Lincolnshire’s favour and the final score was Leicestershire & Rutland 4 - Lincolnshire 5. 

 

All of the matches were played in good spirit, it was a great advantage having Lingdale members Sue Holwell & Barbara Suffolk in the team both maintaining clean sheets. It was lovely to see so much junior talent being developed and nurtured by the Lincolnshire team and we look forward to seeing some of our Leicestershire & Rutland juniors playing for us in the future soon. 

 

Well fought team Leicestershire & Rutland.

2nd Team V Nottinghamshire 16th August 2015

 Match Report

Firstly can I thank Lingdale Golf Club for hosting the event and providing great facilities, catering and weather !!!

This was always going to a tough match as the winning team would go through to the area finals.

After the morning foursomes it was a tied match 1 1/2 to 1 1/2 and all to play for in the afternoon.

The games were all very close swinging one way then the other, with both captains racing around the course trying to keep score.

But in the end it was Notts that took the match winning 5 1/2 to 3 1/2.

I mush thank Amy Taylor, Emily Anthony, Katie Underwood, Oivia Barrs, Rachel East, Clare Bailey and Lucy Garfield Fisher for playing great golf and fighting until the last putt, you are a credit to your county.

Congratulations to Amy Taylor who was awarded her county colours.

Also many thanks to our President Lynda who supported us through this and our previous matches.

May I wish Pam and her team good luck in the finals and look out for us next year!

Finally many many thanks to all the girls who played this year including the ones I had to call up the the very last minute to stand in.

It was close girls but hopefully closer next year.

Alison
