The Winter Foursomes final was held at Beaconsfield Golf Club on Wednesday 17th April between Sue Carroll and Carol Grant from Gerrards Cross and Ros Warren and Suzie Turner from Harewood Downs.  Ros and Suzie were receiving one shot from Sue and Carol.

It was a beautiful sunny day, although rather windy, and we had a good turnout for the match.  All the players brought caddies and there were also a couple of ladies from Gerrards Cross who came to watch.  Our County Captain, Karen Platt, was the match referee, and Carol Richie, County President, also came along to watch the beginning of the match.

There was some excellent play by all four players, especially tee to green, however all of the players found the greens quite tricky.

Ros and Suzie took an immediate lead, winning the first two holes.  The 3rd and 4th were halved, and then Sue and Carol won the par 3 5th after an excellent tee shot by Sue.  Three more halved holes followed, and then Sue and Carol were able to half the 8th (where Ros and Suzie had a shot) and then won the 9th, to make it all square at the turn.

Ros and Suzie won the 10th with a par, and then holes 11, 12 and 13 were all halved.  On the long 14th, Ros and Suzie managed to put their approach shot close to the pin, for a win, going 2 up.

We had some excitement on the 15th, when a large Chinook helicopter hovered very low over us for several minutes, before landing just over the fence in Wilton Park.  None of us realised just how big and noisy they are!  This was not enough to put either pair off, and the hole was halved.

The 16th is the longest par three on the course, and was into the wind, so quite a difficult tee shot.  The hole was won by Sue and Carol.

On the par five 17th, Sue’s shot to the green ran into the greenside bunker and Ros’s shot landed on the fringe, only about 15 feet from the hole, resulting in Ros and Suzie winning the hole and the match by a score of 2&1.

On behalf of the County I would like to thank Beaconsfield Golf Club for allowing us courtesy of their course for this final.
