Reports from Sarah

Sarah recently took part in the Club Company Champion of Champions held at the Warwickshire. This is by way of the Club Company congratulating all their Club Champions (Men, Ladies, Seniors and Juniors) If you haven’t played there then it is well worth a visit. Three courses, hotel etc etc. The course was in excellent condition with some very difficult flag positions - a shame that my golf was not in the same excellent condition that day! It was fun and good to meet some other Club Champs from around the company.

Kathy D and Sarah F represented Chesfield in the Hertfordshire Senior Ladies Championship held this year at South Herts. Not sure either of us played our best golf that day but it was challenging to put ourselves out there! Also lunch was good!!

Big thank you to Sarah and Kathy D for flying the flag for Chesfield Ladies.
