1st Team v Dorset

1st Team v DorsetAs usual a warm welcome for both teams from the staff at Bramshaw Golf Club as we arrived for this year’s friendly match. After the heavy rain that Bramshaw has experienced during the winter months, the course is drying out nicely and was proving a good test for the players.
It was a pleasure to be able to include four of Hampshire’s junior team in today’s line up and I was very grateful to Hannah Scriven and Flora Keites who had travelled from Jersey to take part. All four matches were very close and played in a great spirit. In the first match, Aimee and Charlotte were 3 down at one stage but were keen to fight back and produced an excellent finish to obtain a half point. Georgie and Beth combined well to obtain their point. Louise and Hannah played some very good golf but unfortunately came across two opponents who produced “just the right shot at the right time”, even on the 17th when their approach shot finished just 4 feet from the hole to produce a birdie to close the match. In the final match, Adrian and Flora again played very well but their opposition were just too strong.
Congratulations to Sheila Davidge and her team who won with a final score of 2.5 to 1.5. We look forward to visiting Dorset next year.
