Junior Jubilee and Presentation 2019

Girls 2019aA fantastic day for the 2019 Junior Jubilee, our celebration of our golfing year. We played an Am/Am at Norwood Park in glorious sunshine and congratulations must go to all the girls who scored incredibly well in difficult conditions. Well done to the winning 18 hole team of Elizabeth Smith, Freya Keal, Safi Durrant and Ava Waplington, who narrowly beat Lucy Bradshaw, Madeleine Smith, Annie Bowman and Lucy Holbrough into second place. It was very close between all 4 teams and really demonstrated the strength of the Notts squad this year. In the par 3 competition Maya Kubba, Millie Marsh and Yara Kubba took first place with all girls showing just how well they have progressed during the year.

The evening presentation of certificates and re-presenting of trophies and awards won throughout the year was amazing with a prize table showing a small sample of the numerous awards received during the year. Captain Lucy Holbrough gave a fantastic speech and they said a sad farewell to our retiring County President Maureen Clarke who has been a wonderful supporter of the coaching sessions and competitions throughout the year.

Susie and Suzi would like to congratulate all the girls on an amazingly successful year and wish you all the very best in 2020.

Leonie1aCongratulations to Leonie Muir, of Wollaton Park GC, who finished in 3rd place in the Scottish U16 Girls Open at Elgin Golf Club, with a score of 1 over par gross and only 3 shots off the lead. She also won the nett competition with a nett score of 9 under par, resulting in a drop in her handicap, to 4. It's lovely to see her proudly wearing her Nottinghamshire shirt.

Sofia Barroso Sá was crowned the winner at the Scottish Girls’ U16 Open Championship after a three-under par final round of 71 saw her overtake the overnight leaders, finishing on an overall score of two-under par. Runner-up Grace Mayo, posted the lowest round of the day; an excellent four-under par 70, but ultimately came up just short of a playoff. Overnight leaders Anna Neumayer from Austraia and Leonie Muir from England, both posted solid scores of one-over par today to finish in a tie for third.
