JUNIOR GIRLS SPRING MEETING April 13th 2017
Wheathill Golf Club hosted the Junior Girls Spring Meeting. Although entries were disappointing the seven girls who played the 18 hole stableford had a glorious day playing some wonderful golf. Regaining the Trophy she won last year, the winner of the Chivers Trophy, with a magnificent score of 44 points, was Abby Gray of Farrington Park, runner-up with 35 points on count back was Amelia Matthews of Saltford and third, playing in her first County competition, was Frankie Dezis of Farrington Park. Whilst the Performance and Developement girls were playing the 18 hole course, 6 Futures girls played the 8 hole Par 3 Academy course and then took part in a putting and chipping competition. Libbie Dezis of Farrington Park won the stableford competition with 31 points and Laura-Ann Marshman of Isle of Wedmore won the putting and chipping competition. Congratulations to all winners. A huge thank you to Wheathill Golf Club staff for making us very welcome, the County Competitions Secretary Sandra Ford and her assistant Jane Pitcher for checking the scores and Sally Irlam a Junior Committe member for presenting the prizes. Finally a big thank you to all the parents for ferrying the girls around to these county competitions.
