The South West Australian Spoons Regional Final took place at Thornbury Golf Club on Tuesday 19th July.
On the hottest day of the year to date (35C!) 44 pairs took part from all counties in the South West. (All competitors had won their club event to be at the regional final played between April & June).
Thanks to Thornbury GC staff and members for a very successful day and looking after all the players in the hot conditions. Particular mention must be given to Kate Williams for helping me and organising cold drinks and wet flannels for over heated players. Thank you to the Lady Captain, Di Geraghty, Rob Ford the starter and all the ball spotters.
Well done to all the players for completing their round and and taking part in the Regional Final.
Congratulations to the winners, Michelle Underwood and Tara Welland from Fingle Glen GC who will now go forward to the England Golf National Final to be held in September at Waterlooville GC.
