Midland South Region 4BBB Competition 2011

Burnham Beeches Golf Club

Wednesday 5th October 2011

Winners of Midland South 4BBB
Winners of the Scratch Trophy:- Kate Stagg & Anne Woodsend (Oxfordshire)

This 18 hole event hosted by Bucks was held on Wednesday 5th October at Burnham Beeches Golf Club.  Initially planned to be a foursomes event, it was changed to a four ball better medal format in order to attract more entries.  The recent hot weather had come to an end, and cool and breezy conditions welcomed the players.  The end of the field were unfortunate in having to play the last few holes in the rain.

Kate Stagg and Anne Woodsend from Burford won this Midlands South Region Better Ball competition with a gross 73, one over par.  In 2nd place were Annie Gowing and Kate Evans from Frilford Heath, on countback from Claire Howells and Bobbi Waugh from Moor Hall, gross 75. 

Kate and Anne also carded the lowest nett score with a 67, but the Trophies went to Lina McKenna (Harewood Downs) and Karen Burrows (Ellesborough) with a nett 68.  Phillipa Cook and Carolyn Howell (Woburn) also scored a 68, and there was a five way tie with Lynne Fitzpatrick and Kate Simpson (Bearwood Lakes) coming 3rd on the last three holes, with a nett 69. 

The format attracted 50 pairs from the region and the overwhelming consensus was for a Better Ball format next year. Midlands South represents Berkshire, Buckinghamshire, Northamptonshire, Oxfordshire, Warwickshire and Worcestershire & Herefordshire.

On behalf of BCLGA thank you very much to Burnham Beeches Golf Club for their hospitality.
