It was a very overcast and miserable morning at Langdon Hills on Sunday 14th October  for the final of the Hunter Foursomes.
The finalists were Jayne Stockwell (10)  and Holly Haslam (1) from Stock Brook Manor and Pearl Powell (16)  and Rosie Shackell (18) from Colne Valley. 
Even though Rosie has cut 7 shots off her handicap this season Jayne and Holly still had to give the Colne Valley girls 12 shots. Jayne and Holly won the toss and elected to play first.
Although they played some good shots Jayne and Holly never really got into their stride, giving so many shots was just too much for them.  It was Pearl and Rosie’s day they played very well and hardly put a foot wrong. 
They took the match on the 13th 6&5  The handful of Colne Valley supporters were delighted as this was the first time Colne Valley had won the Hunter Foursomes!
Grateful thanks to Langdon Hills for hosting the match. Thanks also to Bridget Logan for refereeing and the Langdon Hills Lady Captain Alison Payne for all her help before and on the day.

Given that no-one person could win more than one prize, the results were:

Bentley GC hosted the final of the 2018 Munro Foursomes on Monday 10th September. The match was played over 36 holes between Clacton-on-Sea, represented by Faye Trigg and Charley Hatley, and Thorndon Park, represented by Ashley Chalmers and Sophie Wheeler.

Thorndon Park got off to a cracking start before Clacton fought back to all square after eight holes.  However Thorndon Park soon took the lead again to finish the morning round at 3up. In the afternoon Clacton made a valiant effort winning or halving several holes but Thorndon maintained their lead eventually winning 3&2 and claiming the trophy on the 34th hole.

It was an excellent match between two very strong pairs and was enjoyed by a good crowd of spectators from both clubs. Our thanks to Lady Captain Liz Potter and to Bentley GC for their hospitality on the day.

Good luck to both teams.

The Silver Trophy Final was held on a beautiful late summer afternoon on 2nd September at Romford Golf Club between Chelmsford and Stock Brook Manor.  It was always likely to be a very tight match as the handicaps of both teams were almost identical.  Playing for Chelmsford were Alison Evans, Tiff Wade, Amanda Dicker, Jackie Sleet and Tanya Greaves, and Stock Brook’s team was Jayne Stockwell, Lesley Harley, Shelley Edkins, Tracey Rogers and Wendy Scales. The matches were played in great spirit and lots of supporters from both Clubs came to watch.  But it was Chelmsford’s day.  Congratulations to them and commiserations to Stock Brook Manor.

The final of the Silver Shield was held on 19th August at Colne Valley with Thorndon Park and Stock Brook Manor playing each other for the second year running.  As expected, it was a very tight and exciting match, and until the last couple of holes, it could have gone either way.  However, this year, Thorndon Park triumphed.  Congratulations to them, and commiserations to Stock Brook Manor.
