Midlands South Regional Foursomes 2009
The Midlands South Regional Foursomes Competition was held on Wednesday 23rd September at Sand Martins Golf Club in Berkshire. The event is a 36 hole strokeplay foursomes competition with a maximum aggregate handicap limit of 30.
Zoe Fitz-Costa (Beaconsfield) and Emily Marler (Hazlemere) paired up for the event and were the only Bucks players to enter. (The Beaconsfield Salvers, a similar 36 hole foursomes event, was being played the following day - next year the dates are to be fixed so that the two competitions do not clash).
After the morning round Zoe and Emily were lying in 4th place but managed to climb up the leader board to finish second in the scratch competition, losing by only 1 shot to the winners who were a Berkshire pair playing at their home club.
