Seniors Inter County Team Championship
Frilford Heath Golf Club
Monday 26th September 2011
The Bucks team:- Karen Platt, Susan Kettler, Carole Weir & Cathy Armstrong
The Inter County Senior Team Championships were hosted by Oxfordshire at Frilford Heath on Monday 26th September. Ten teams of four from the Southern Counties took part.
The team from Buckinghamshire was: Carol Weir (Beaconsfield), Cathy Armstrong (Ellesborough), Susan Kettler (Mentmore) and Karen Platt (Beaconsfield).
The format of the competition is the aggregate of the best three gross scores from the team. The ladies don’t play with each other, and so don’t know how everyone has done until the end. The greens were extremely fast and caused some frustration for most of the teams including Bucks.
Bucks managed to score 249 and came a very creditable 4th place, missing out on 3rd place to Surrey who were 1 better. Second place, with 245 points, was Sussex and the winners and team champions for 2011 were Oxfordshire. All four of their players were members of Frilford, but one of their team had to withdraw through injury and they still managed to score a very impressive 237, which was 18 over par.
The Bucks team had a good day and were supported by County President, Margaret Maisey and County Captain, Sue Lee. Next year's competition will be on Monday, 24th September at Worthing.
