2019 Winners

Winners: Nerys McGuinness and Gail Lawrence (Harleyford) & Runners Up : Jackie Edwards and Anne-Marie Gilbert (Lambourne). 

It was a cold grey October day when Jackie Edwards, The Lambourne Lady Captain and her partner Anne-Marie Gilbert teed-off against Nerys McGuinness and Gail Lawrence of Harleyford GC in the Final of the County Summer Greensomes KO. Extraordinarily, following an initial long drive, Gail’s 2nd shot could not be found despite best efforts from the group accompanying….. and the hole was conceded.

On Harleyford’s 2nd shot, on the 2nd hole, the ball came to rest between two barbed-wire fences and the Match Referee, Ian Bishop ruled the ball to be out of play and the second hole was conceded…..a shaky start by Harleyford!!

The match then ebbed and flowed until the 9th when Harleyford took the next 5 holes. Not to be beaten, Lambourne won 3 of the following 4 holes only for Harleyford to win the 17th and take the match.

A gripping final with much to talk about and played in great spirit with many thanks to Ian Bishop.

Burnham Beeches were fine hosts and players and officials returned to the Clubhouse to have ‘Tea’ after which the BCLGA County Captain Gail Sharp presented the Summer Greensomes County Cup and prizes.
