Chris Peers and Jill Borrie succeeded in winning the seven knockout matches through the summer, to go forward for the Final event. This in itself was a wonderful achievement.
It was held at St. Pierre, Chepstow, last Sunday/Monday/Tuesday. There was the practice round on Sunday. Chris and Jill had Jenny Clink and Barbara Eaton caddying for them.
On Monday they were drawn against Duddingston GC, Edinburgh, playing early.
Their ladies handicaps were 3 and 14. . Our ladies are 17 and 30. They had a really good game but lost on the 16th. Duddingston went on to be the outright winners.
Chris and Jill then went on to play mon pm /tues am in two separate competitions of Stableford Foursomes . On Tuesday pm the Final was played. Duddingston against Worfield. This was a wonderful match to watch with Worfield four up with six to play. Then Duddingston came back to all square on the 17th and won on the 18th.
Chris and Jill were beaten by very strong determined ladies.
Isabel Clark and I were there supporting them all the way . A wonderful time and so proud of Chris and Jill for getting Lilley Brook be part of this National Event. A magnificent achievement and great ambassadors for the club.
Thank you ladies.
