Ruby Colleton finished in second place on 35 pts and Megan Bishop beat Beth Ball & Gracie Gillespie on countback to take third with 31pts.Well done to everyone who played.

Update from President

Refunds will be processed for those that had already entered. EG hope to run events from the end of July, but no certainty, all depends on this ghastly virus. We do h...

MESSAGE FROM YOUR PRESIDENT

Message from your President Sadly all county fixtures have been cancelled until the end of June due to the Coronavirus, this includes all knockout competitions. I informed all delegates this week to communicate this with club members, we certainly are in unprecedented times and will keep you informed as and when. Meanwhile all keep safe and hopefully we can keep playing, albeit car park to course golf.

Squad training

 Squad training

Our first training session of the 2020 season at Fridlford Heath G.C. with our new coach Martin Woodbridge. A great start with 13 players turning up for short game coaching followed by foursomes practice. Although it was cold & frosty the sun did appear warming us all up. So nice to see everyone after a long break and now looking forward to the new season.
