2022 County Championships

The Buckinghamshire County Ladies Golf Association Championships were held over three days at Ellesborough Golf Club. The 36-hole qualifying rounds were held on Tuesday 3rd May (results below) with the top 16 moving forward to matchplay on Saturday 7th and Sunday 8th May.

The Final, followed by enthused supporters, was played between two exceptional teenagers, Ella Butteriss (Beaconsfield) and Grace Rigby-Walden (Gerrards Cross); both young ladies played outstanding golf in a contagiously friendly, competitive and sporting Final. A tight front nine, with both young ladies leading at various stages, both birdying the 9th to be all square at the turn. Grace won the 10th but Ella then followed with 5 birdies in a row claiming the Championship with a par on the 16th. Families, supporters and admirers were treated to wonderful golf with some astounding long drives passing 300 yards; a memorable three days indeed.

Many thanks to Ellesborough Golf Club for their generous and attentive hosting throughout the Competition and especially to their Lady Captain Sharon Squires and to her ladies who entered the Competition, acted as ball spotters and were such enthusiastic spectators. The Course was in fabulous condition and we want to record a special thanks to the Head Greenkeeper Dave Goodchild, and his team for their fast if not slick greens, the truly challenging pin positions and Dave's utter attention to the Course throughout the Competition.

Many congratulations go therefore to Ella Butteriss from Beaconsfield GC, our 2022 County Champion and to all those players who competed over the three days.
