County Week Message From County Captain

A Message from Carolyn Howell:-

I was delighted that this week went so well. The team played their socks off and never stopped trying throughout the week. We so nearly did it. 3 halved matches could have been three wins if luck had been with us. Nail biting finishes! So we have a wonderfully talented team and next year it will be the stronger for the realisation that they can win.

The new grouping of Bucks, Oxon, Berks, Northants, Warks and Worcs/Hereford has been a great success. The standards are more level but higher than we had before, so therefore to win is a reality. The training programme organised by Carole Weir and Lawrence Farmer has paid off, with short game and putting much improved. A big thanks to them.

I would like to thank the team for their loyalty and persistence in the match play. Also all their support for their team members when they were not playing.  Apres Golf was also much enjoyed as our Premier Inn in Wellingborough had a handy pub/restaurant, which we all enjoyed. No need to travel after returning from the golf. It is an important part of the week to have a comfortable billet and easy access to meals. Wellingborough golf club did us proud, the course was in immaculate condition. The members could not believe it and were out there trying to emulate our girls golf as soon as some space was available.

I would also like to thank our President Jen Marshall, Vice Captain Sue Beresford and 2nd Team Captain Veronica Boulter for being such a support during the week., and kept me company on the Team Buggy. Also thanks to all those who caddied or just came along to watch and take pictures.
Thanks goes to Brian Gough for being our team photographer on the last day with rather more relaxed photographs of the team and supporters.

Thanks to Phillipa Cook for getting all the results on the new webpage so quickly despite difficulties in obtaining the information.

Well done team! Good luck in all your competitive golf and university golf. I have enjoyed being with you all.

With best wishes for the Future, 

Carolyn Howell, Bucks County Captain
