Following a hectic weekend of Championship golf, with some girls playing 36 holes over the 3 days, some very tired players rocked up to Bristol & Clifton Golf Club to play another potentially 36 holes of golf against Dorset Ladies 2nd team.
The team for this match was:
Jess Brown (Cirencester)
Issy Hopkins (B&C)
Megan Bartlett (Knowle)
Kate Thurlow (Cotswold Hills)
Elin Tynan (Minchinhampton New)
Lorna Evans (Minchinhampton Old)
In the morning the girls played foursomes, with Jess and Issy leading the way and they soon found themselves 2 up through the turn and won their match on the 14th. Unfortunately the other two pairings of Megan and Elin and Kate and Lorna lost their matches.
The afternoon singles session brought us a quick succession of wins with Megan, Issy and Kate all winning on the 14th hole. Elin, in her first Ladies match lost to very fierce opposition on the 16th and Lorna battled it out to the 18th coming back from 3 down, to lose by 1 hole.
The match came down to the last pairing with Jess needing to secure the winning point, which she did on the 17th hole.
The Gloucestershire girls did us proud and Dorset complimented us on the spirit of the game.
