This year’s South Region County Match Week between Hampshire, Surrey, Kent, Middlesex and Sussex was hosted by Surrey and played at Walton Heath Golf Club, which was in excellent condition and proved a very good test.

Our Hampshire team got off to a great start on the first day with a win against Kent. Kerry Smith’s terrific hole in 1 against Kent was one of the highlights of the week. Our 2nd match was against host’s Surrey who put out their strongest team of the week that day and after some very close matches we had to settle for a halve. The 3rd day saw Hampshire get a convincing win against Middlesex and with the final result of the week still unknown, we knew we needed a win against Sussex our final opponents. Unfortunately, Sussex were just too strong and with two of our matches just losing out on the 18th, this year’s campaign had come to an end.

During the week we saw some great golf from every County’s 1st team players and all matches were played in a wonderful spirit.

Congratulations to Surrey who remained undefeated and will therefore represent our region when the National Finals between six regions in England are played at Waterlooville GC on 12 – 16 September 2016. Spectators are very welcome during the week as this will be an opportunity to see some of the best amateur female golfers in the Country in action.

Thank you to all our Hampshire players for making the week so enjoyable and our supporters who made the journey to Walton Heath. Next year, the hosts are Kent and we will be playing at Littlestone GC.

Hampshire were represented by:
Kerry Smith (Waterlooville), Diane Oram (Basingstoke), Flora Keites (Royal Jersey), Sarah Bradshaw (Stoneham), Charlotte Barrow (Brokenhurst Manor), Beth Goater (Hockley), Georgie Mundy (Corhampton) and Aimee Paterson (Sherfield Oaks)
