Junior Jubilee & Presentation 2021

Winning MNR team xThe Junior Jubilee and presentation for 2021 was held at Coxmoor Golf Club on Sunday 31st October - which explains the Halloween theme! Unfortunatelly the weather was not in our favour and the Junior Jubilee competition had to be cancelled, so when the sun did come out for 30 minutes we had an enjoyable putting competition. The competition was organised by Maddie Smith and Ava Waplington, incoming and outgoing Junior Captains, and was won by Jorja Newbold, our incoming Vice-Captain. The Captain's changeover took place and also the ceremonial handover of the County flag; Ava's dad Simon handing it over to Maddie's mum Katherine to look after in 2022.

Afterwards there was a presentation of trophies and certificates - each girl is given a certificate of all the their achievements over the year. County Captain Helen Haycox also presented the trophies from the County Championships which several of the girls had won. A special mention must be made of the excellent 1st round by Maddie Smith to set a new ladies course record of 67 (8 under par) at Hollinwell.

The girls also showed off the trophy presented to them for winning the MNR league for 2021. Well done to all the girls who played this season and congratulation to all the girls on their successes throughout the year.

Congratulations to Elizabeth Wilson!

Elizabeth WilsonTalented teen Elizabeth Wilson blew away the field with a Stableford score of 39 points to win the England Women’s Medal Final at Woodhall Spa. The 13-year-old from Norwood Park was thrilled to be crowned champion and take home a title which is regarded as the pinnacle for female handicap club golfers in England. Elizabeth, who plays off a handicap index of 2.3, produced an excellent level par scratch round on the Bracken Course. Her score of 39 points gave her a winning margin of three from runner up Katie Clark from Stoke by Nayland and Longridge’s Sally Tyler.

Elizabeth made it through from a club event before carrying on her good form at Belton Park in a regional qualifier – one of six held across the country. With dad Craig on the bag and helping to calm any nerves, Wilson was able to play freely and display the form which helped her make it to England trials this year. A former participant in Girls Golf Rocks at her home club Norwood Park, she now hopes to continue to step up the golfing ladder.

Congratulations Elizabeth!
