Crown Ladies Challenge at Stapleford Abbotts GC

The Crown Ladies Challenge was held at Stapleford Abbotts GC today.  Myself, Kathy Dale and Chris Leary represented Chesfield Downs.

This is the second year of this prestigious event, which is hoped will become one of the big events in the Crown Group's calendar.  The competition was conceived and organised by Maggs Kyte of Merrist Wood last year.  The Stableford Abbotts GC were the 2012 winners and have hosted this year, as the organisation of the competition passes to the winning Club.  This competition is held in conjunction with an Open event which is open to clubs outside of the Crown group.

Kathy, Chris and I played pretty well together and came in with 70 points (best 2 scores counted on each hole).  We came 5th on countback in the Open event and second in the Crown Ladies Challenge, which was won by Merrist Wood, with an impressive 79 points!  This means the 2014 competition will be back at Merrist Wood.

We tried very hard to win, as we thought Megan would love to organise this competition during her captaincy but, sadly, it was not to be.
