Lambourne Finals in Spain

A team of 9 Lambourne ladies took part in the 2018 Annodata Golf Club Classic Team knock-out competition this summer.

Five were needed for each match, with each round getting progressively further from home. Their sixth round was successfully played against Clandon Regis in Surrey, which gave five team members the opportunity to fly to Montecastillo Golf Resort in Spain last week for the semi-finals and finals.

The playing conditions on the course were not easy. The course was very wet and playing long, and, with several elevated tees, there were quite a lot of embedded balls to contend with. After a practice round on Tuesday 20th November, the Lambourne team were confronted on Wednesday 21st with an on-form team from the Scottish club, Glenbervie, and narrowly lost their semi-final 3 matches to 2.

On Thursday 24th, the Lambourne team had the opportunity to play against Ferndown ladies for the 3rd/4th place spot. The rain set in and the course played even longer, and this time Lambourne managed 1½ matches to Ferndown's 3½ matches, leaving them in fourth position. Meanwhile Glenbervie came second to the overall winning ladies' team from Links Golf Club, Newmarket.

The full Lambourne Ladies team of Jackie Edwards, Tricia Fish, Pam Tierney, Gill Goddard, Claire Geneen, Maura Spencer, Gill Cunningham, Denise Leader and Anne-Marie Gilbert are to be congratulated for reaching the final series in a competition which started with over 240 ladies teams entered! It was a marvellous result to reach the final series. No doubt thanks are also due to all the caddies and club supporters that helped the team reach the final series.
