Captain's Newsletter - 20 Aug 2016

Kathy Dale and Mary Hooper were delighted to represent Chesfield Downs this week in the Womens England Golf Trust national Final. Kings Norton is a beautiful course with plenty of trees, water hazards and lightning fast greens. Mary gave us an excellent start, achieving a par 4 for 4 points on the 1st hole. But our score was no contest for the winners who scored a tremendous 47 points to win a beautiful glass trophy.

We both loved the whole day and were given some lovely gifts to take home. We are both looking forward to playing for a place next year whilst helping to raise funds for junior golf in the process.
