MNR Junior Finals Day 2021
The MNR Festival of Golf and finals day was once again held at Trent Lock Golf Club on Monday 16th August 2021. It was a very successful day for all of the players from Notts, Lincs, Leics, Derbys, Staffs and Shrops who were involved in the many events played on the day.
The Scratch team played Derbyshire in their final match of the season. With Maddie Smith and Amelia Wan both playing away in national competitions, the team of Ava Wapplington, Jorja Newbold, Elizabeth Wilson, Lucy Moorhouse and Amelia Hogg lost by 3½ to 1½ but this was just enough for the Scratch team to take the MNR Junior League for 2021. Well done to them all!
A great day was had by all and some of it was captured by the team from Sky Sports, so watch out for it!

County Captain's Day 2021
Hello Ladies! Well, what a day, County Captain’s Day was very definitely not what we are all used to - these are strange times. Many of you will be aware of the difficulties that had occurred at The Nottinghamshire in the late afternoon prior to Captain’s Day, and firstly I must sincerely thank the club for pulling out all the stops to ensure that the day still went ahead. The team there worked extremely hard to provide a meal and pulled in staff from anywhere that they could. The lovely lady in the cream blouse who worked all day is the owner’s daughter who is a head teacher in Leicestershire!
July 15th was a lovely, warm, and sunny day. The conditions for golf were fabulous and the scores reflected this. I received many complimentary comments about the excellent condition of the course. And now to the results….
The winning team are Jan Hooley, Pam Musson, Elaine Shelton and Sue Evans of Stanton on The Wolds with a fantastic score of 91. In second place, another great score of 86 are Wendy Kerry, Lorraine Howd, Sheila Drummond and Gini Whitehead of Ruddington Grange. In third place are Wendy Adcock and Jane Quibell from Norwood Park, Sandy Flewitt (Horsley Lodge) and Nancy Tatham (Lincoln) with a score of 85. Wendy’s team took third place on countback with a back nine score of 45.

MNR County Week 2021
County week took place this year at Hinckley Golf Club and there was much anticipation as to how this event would be managed with the many Covid rules still in place. However, the Leicestershire and Rutland Ladies Golf Association had this all-in hand, and the event was well organised - our thanks go to them and Hinckley Golf Club for hosting us. Hinckley is a beautiful parkland course and was in terrific condition. It has some very quirky holes, and the greens are superb but challenging.
On day one we had a close match in the morning against Leicestershire and thought we were going to scrape 2½ points but just lost out. The afternoon presented us with a tough challenge - Staffordshire, but the team played well, and we took this match 3 points to 2. Day two Shropshire and then Derbyshire. In the morning more success, with a convincing win of 4½ to 1½. In the afternoon we faced Derbyshire and the team came through again 3 and 2.
