The start of this month saw my captain’s day take place at Rothley Park. It was great to get everyone together again, even if restrictions still meant some couldn’t be there – you were thoroughly missed. The standard of golf was fabulous to watch with low scores coming in round a tricky test of a course. I would like to thank everyone that helped on the day, particularly the Rothley Park ladies section, Danny (Rothley's club manager), my parents and Anita who allowed me to have the day run as I wanted. I really enjoyed myself and would like to thank all of you for making my captain’s day a memorable one! The results are as follows:
Overall winner: Grace Hubbard – 39 points
Scratch prize: Eleanor Parkinson – gross 74, 38 points
Second place: Megan White – 38 points (on countback)
Third place: Lila Bisset
9 hole winner: Harriet Oulds – 17 points
9 hole runner up: Edie Speirs – 16 points
18 hole longest drive: Holly Waterfield
9 hole longest drive: Poppy Burbidge
Over the past month there have been club championships taking place. Holly Waterfield won the Lutterworth ladies club championship shooting 84, 76. Francesca Brimm won The Leicestershire Golf Club ladies club championship with a gross score of 82. Emily Wolverson finished second with 87. This was meant to be a 36 hole event but due to bad weather, competitors got called off the course during their second round. Well done girls on top finishes in ladies competitions!
The Robert Rock tour has proved a hit with the girls this season. Scarlett Stevenson won the U18 girls nett at Ruddington Grange with a nett 64 and just this week she finished third at Woodsome Hall! Also playing in out of county events was Eleanor Parkinson and Holly Waterfield. Both girls entered the U18 English Girls at Sandy Lodge which was meant to be 36 holes over two days to qualify into the top 40 for the final 36 holes. Due to a storm, the first 18 holes was cancelled and so the girls turned up the following day for testing conditions around a championship course. Eleanor carded a 76 gross (+4) and qualified to the final 40. Unfortunately Holly didn’t qualify but invaluable experience was learnt. On the final day, Eleanor shot 78 (+6) and did set off for her final round before being called in due the weather. This meant that Eleanor finished in the top 20 in a very competitive and low scoring field!
Don’t forget to put your entries in for the girls championship at Glen Gorse, it will be great to see everyone again!
