Left to Right: Chloe Lipton, Joanna Jones, Louise Bowen, Annabel Dimmock,
Alice Kozlowski, Megan Lance, Lucy Matthews, Charlotte Nutt.
Middlesex hosted our annual friendly match at Northwood Golf Club.
Northwood Golf Club an old established parkland course is quite tight with a stream weaving its way through most of the course. The final result didn't dampen the spirits of the girls and was a good learning experience as it was the first time many had played foursomes. Chloe Lipton ( Beaconsfield ) and Joanna Jones ( Burnham Beaches ) played their first county match. Berkshire were 2 players short and Annabel Dimmock and Charlotte Nutt played as short notice replacements.
RESULT: Bucks & Berks 1 - Middx & Herts 5
BB&O GIRLS v BB&O BOYS - 10 October
The 2 lowest handicap girls from Bucks, Berks and Oxfordshire played in the annual triangular match against the U14 BB&O Boys and U16 BB&O Boys at Gerrards Cross GC on Sunday 10th October.
Annabel and Evie went out in the first two groups being the lowest handicappers amongst the girls team. They both played well considering the boys could hit the ball miles! and both won 1 and lost 1 match.

Junior Girls v Berkshire - 2 May
The Buckinghamshire Girls played their annual fixture against Berkshire at Maidenhead Golf Club. The Bucks team were greeted by assistant professional Vicki Harris, a former Bucks Junior. Vicki gave them some useful information about the parkland course.
The weather stayed dry but there was a biting wind. 12 year old Emma Norris made a very impressive debut for the county, with a great up and down for par to secure victory in her match on the 13th.
Annabel Dimmock and Megan Lance also won their matches on the 13th. Charlotte West came from 2 down to win her match on the 18th. Lucy Matthews won her last hole to halve her match in front of a big crowd of players, parents and county officials.
Margaret Maisey (County President) and Anne Bridges (Junior Training Officer) were very encouraging walking the course. The team spirit was very good; as soon as the girls finished their matches they went back onto the course to support their team.
It was delightful to see such young golfers plotting their way around the course with their planners, playing great golf in a good spirit.
RESULT: Bucks Girls 5½ Berks 1½
