BB&O Junior Championships 2015

Buckingham Golf Club

Thursday 9 April 2015

 

The BB&O Girls’ Championships was held at Buckingham Golf Club on Thursday 9th April.

Unfortunately the event clashed with both the Berkshire and Oxfordshire Ladies County Championships, and a number of the girls were playing in the Scottish Under 16 Championships, so we were down on numbers.

There were 7 girls playing in the medal competition, with handicaps ranging from 3 to 24, and 8 girls playing in the stableford, with handicaps ranging from 26 to 36.

Many thanks to Peter and Linda in the office for all of their help with the competition arrangements and also in making us welcome at Buckingham.  Also thanks to Mary Clarke and Sue Holwell (Ladies Captain) who came along on Thursday to make sure we were all looked after, and of course to Scott and his team in the clubhouse.  Thank you also to Tony Holt and Phillipa Cook, who each walked round for 9 holes with the youngest of our players.

The weather was lovely and sunny, and the course was in very good condition, although it was still very early in the season.

The winner of the BB&O Championship was Shamiso Hatchard from Woburn, with a gross 78.

The winner of the BB&O Nett Championship was Jessica Ramsay from Oxford Ladies with an excellent nett 62 (9 under handicap).  Jessica has been playing very well recently, and this will be the third time she has cut her handicap in the last couple of weeks.

The team trophy was won by Oxfordshire with an impressive team total of 134.

In the stableford competition, Rosie Kim scored 38 points to win the competition, with Lizzie Rosen second on 36 points.  Shannon Holt was 3rd with 32 points, beating Ellie Phillips on a better back nine.
