Captain's Reports 2023
Seniors friendly match v Hampshire.
Our Dorset Senior team travelled to Skylark golf club to play Hampshire Senior ladies on Monday 24th September.
The match was played on one of those unsettled windy and rainy days that we unfortunately had been experiencing a lot of this summer.
The conditions however did not dampen the spirits of either team
The standard of golf was high and the matches were played in a friendly competitive atmosphere.
Skylark is a challenging parkland course with tenacious rough and a hilly back 9 .
Hampshire eventually prevailed by winning 2 matches ( one only on the last put on 18) and halving 2 .
I was particularly proud of the way the Dorset Ladies represented their County .
Team : Sue Olds and Amanda Walker.
Cathy MacFarlane-Thompson and Amanda Northover.
Debbie Rickets and Jane King
Helen Durrant and Sue Edwards.
win South West Inter county Scratch Competition.
The team of Jane Southcombe, Shelly Davies Di Freda and Jo Hadley beat all the SW counties at Launceston Golf club 23/8/23 to win the inter county scratch team competition.
The format was of 3 out of 4 scratch scores to count .
Despite a very challenging Parkland course ,and as Di described ,really hairy greens ,the team performed brilliantly posting
Scores of 79 80 and 81 respectively .
These were the top 3 scores out of the whole field and as such Dorset were clear winners of a beautiful silver plate .
Thanks go to Launceston for hosting and to Karen Rix ,the Gloucestershire President and SW Committee ,without whom the event would have not occurred.
