Notts Win MVLGA Team Championships

NottinghamshireThe MVLGA County Team Championships were played at Handsworth Golf Club over 3 days from 11th to 13th October 2021. The main tournament is 2 days of stroke play, off scratch, with 3 players scores from 4 counting each day. With 16 teams taking part from around the Midlands the competition was tough. Staffordshire have won the tournament for the last 5 years and, with handicaps of 1 and less, Nottinghamshire needed to perform well.

With good scores from Caron Harrison and Carol Houghton on the 1st day, Notts were leading by 1 shot going into the last day, with Staffordshire and Worcestershire just behind.
Notts played steady golf on Day 2 and pulled off a fantastic win to take the title by 6 shots from Staffordshire.

Congratulations on a great performance to the team representing Notts:  Caron Harrison, Carol Houghton and Sue Penfold from Sherwood Forest and Carol Wild from Notts Ladies.

Ladies Interclub Final 2021

Ladies Interclub 21aThe Ladies Interclub Final was played on 13th September, at Sherwood Forest Golf Club, between Mapperley and Coxmoor Golf Clubs. The weather was good, the course at Sherwood was in fine order and the spectators were treated to some nail-bitingly good golf. We saw some very good putts being holed.
Congratulations must go to both Coxmoor and Mapperley for reaching the final, but after a gritty performance by all the finalists and despite the best efforts of Coxmoor, Mapperley were victorious with a score of 5up.

Second Team Results 2021

The following are the match results for the second team this season:

18th July v Leicestershire at Lingdale - Notts lost 6½ - 2½
21st July v Leicestershire at Beeston - Nott lost 7 - 2

3rd August v Lincolnshire at Norwood - Notts lost 5½ - 3½
18th August v Lincolnshire at Ashby Decoy - Notts lost 5½ - 3½

The results don’t quite tell an accurate story. Although we lost all of the matches, the games were mostly extremely close, well-fought affairs, often finishing on the 17th or 18th. Throughout, our players battled hard and played some excellent golf, always with a fantastic sporting spirit. This year we had 10 debutants, and a total of 17 players took part over the four matches. The squad were: Bernie Barton, Charlie Inger, Claire Wilson, Julie Revill, Lesley Morris, Millie Marsh, Suzi Anderson, Audrey Macmillan, Ava Wapplington, Bev Cook, Cheryl Gee, Hailey Laverty, Lizzie Wood, Lorraine Howd, Lynne Inman, Jan Calder and Rosemary Lockwood. While this had its drawbacks, perhaps lessening our consistency, it had the huge benefit of introducing new, keen players to the squad, thus deepening our pool for future seasons. Hopefully we will have gained lots of valuable experience!
