The 2011 - 2012 Winter Foursomes Finalists From Left:-
Jane Wetherall & Julia Gallagher (Woburn) Gail Sharp & Judith Arnold (Gerrards Cross)
The Winter Foursomes final was held at Mentmore Golf Club, Rothschild Course, on Thursday 29th March between Gail Sharp & Judith Arnold from Gerrards Cross and Jane Wetherall & Julia Gallagher from Woburn. Gail and Judith were receiving eight shots from Jane and Julia.
It was a beautiful sunny day, and we had a good turnout for the match. Gail and Judith brought caddies, while Jane and Julia had several ladies from Woburn to support them. Our County Captain, Sue Lee, was the match referee, and Carol Richie, County President also came along to watch.
From the first tee shot, it was evident that Jane and Julia had brought their ‘A’ game, and at the turn they were four up, having played the front nine in two over par. Jane and Julia went one better on the tenth when their putt for eagle just missed, so ‘only’ a birdie and five up.
Gail and Judith managed to get a hole back at the 11th, but then lost the short 12th to go back to five down. Unfortunately on the 13th, Gail and Judith incurred a loss of hole penalty, which meant that the final result was a six and five win for Jane and Julia.
On behalf of the County I would like to thank Mentmore Golf Club for allowing us courtesy of their course for this final.
