Scratch Team
Top Of The LeagueFollowing an emphatic 4-1 home win on Sunday against West Herts, Chesfield Downs scratch team are now riding high at the top of group A in Division 4. 5 matches out of the 8 played and 3 victories.

Recently crowned Handicap Club Champion, Lauren Pitcher, continued her excellent run of good form to win her match 6&4. Emma Wood, one of our 7day members, came back to playing after several months off the golf course to take another resounding win over her opponent of 6&4. We had two more good wins of 4&3 for our team and the one game that West Herts won was as close as it gets going all the way to the 18th hole.

Mill Green both away and at home for the next two matches. Well done to all the team Kathy, Emma, Lauren, Pat & Sally.

Friendlies Team
Success breeds success as was demonstrated on Wednesday when the 'friendly ladies' hosted Mowsbury.

As temperatures once again soared bacon butties were on the menu prior to the friendly team taking on a team from Mowsbury. Playing pairs matchplay the ladies returned an magnificent 4-1 victory. You are all winners - congratulations.

De Paula Cup
Kathy Dale had a fabulous win, 6&4, against Elizabeth O'Hare from Welwyn Garden City in this years newly formatted De Paula Cup. Kathy is through to the quarter finals!! Well played.

In previous years this competition has been held over three consecutive days but numbers have declined so HCLGA has changed the format and it is now played over the summer in a knockout format. Get your name down for 2018.

Good luck to Lauren in her round 2 match against Jo Shrimpton Davies from Brookmans Park.
