On Wednesday 4th September the Ladies Team Championships took place at Kenilworth Golf Club with 100 Competitors taking place from 20 Golf Clubs within Warwickshire. The format of this annual event is that each Club has a team of 5 players to represent them playing Medal Strokeplay, and when all scores have been recorded, the highest recorded score from each team is deducted from the total, producing both Gross and Nett winners.
Kenilworth Golf Course had been presented beautifully with great definition between fairways and rough and with the fairways having recovered fully from the drought of 2018 the whole course looked good, though the rough was difficult to get out of. Bunkers were raked well and the Greens, well they were very fast and extremely tricky - balls did not hold one way then they ran through on the return and with some very intricate pin positions, everyone found the greens quite difficult to manage. Then there was the wind!! My did it blow hard and I don't know if it was my imagination, but it seemed to me that it was in our faces more than behind us!! One good thing though was that we did not get wet.
When all scores had been recorded the results proved that
The Walmley team came 3rd in the Nett Competition (only 3 shots away from the from the winners, Robin Hood) and 14th in the Gross Competition
Well Done to the Team: Deb Reynolds, Bev Fiddes, Angie Harrison, Anita Walmsley and Julie Busst
