Interclub Foursomes Finals

The finals of the Ladies’ Interclub Foursomes took place on Friday 29 th September at Morley Hayes Golf Club. Torrential rain overnight and in previous days had threatened the fixture and affected ground conditions; BUT… come the afternoon, the sun came out and the rain stayed away! 

Cavendish played Burton-upon- Trent in the Silver final. It was very close with only two holes separating the two teams at the end.

Congratulations to  Cavendish, the winners and to Burton on Trent for being worthy finalists.

Cavendish - Silver Winners


In the Bronze match, Maywood played Chesterfield. This match was even closer with only one hole deciding the outcome!

Congratulations to Maywood, the winners, and to Chesterfield for making the final – no mean feat.

Maywood - Bronze Winners


Thrilling Finale at Trophy Finals

Sliver Division

The finals of the Ladies’ Silver and Bronze Trophy Competitions took place at Chevin Golf Club on Thursday 17th August. Erewash Valley played Cavendish in the Silver Final, and Breadsall Priory played Mickleover in the Bronze.


Heavy rain overnight and into the morning had led to some flooding, and resulted in the cancellation of a Chevin Ladies’ Competition earlier in the day. Thankfully, we had all been blissfully unaware of this and by the start at 1:30, the water had drained away, the sky was blue, the sun was shining and the course looked magnificent.   

  Cavendish Silver Winners

Before the first Silver pair played onto the 18th, three other pairs had come in and the score was 2/1. All square after a couple of putts made all the more difficult by the large audience, that first pair had to continue… By the time they had taken their tee shots on the 19th, the last pair had also walked in and the score was level. Everything depended on this extended game! Peering through the trees at the first green, the spectators saw the delighted jump for joy from the Cavendish player as her chip onto the green found the hole and secured their victory!

Bronze Division

After a short break for spectators to regain their composure, the Bronze pairs began to come in. The first Bronze pair to play onto the 18th also ended up all square with the score at 2/1, and they made their way over to the 19th (with a loyal, but clearly drained Breadsall caddy in tow).

Once again, the last pair arrived; again, the scores were level; and again, everything was riding on the extended game! They halved the 19th, drove off the 20th and then walked up the fairway and out of sight, leaving supporters and spectators to wait… After what seemed like an age, they reappeared. Mickleover had won!

The players from the left are Jenny Thompson, Pat Hanson, Jo Barwell, Caroline Bennett, Tres Lea, Lady Vice Captain and captain of the Bronze team, and Pat Wright.

It was a thrilling and fitting climax to our Trophy season.  The matches were played in the best golfing spirit; the atmosphere was festive – if a little tense at times!. 

Congratulations to the ladies of Cavendish, holders of the Silver Trophy 2017; and to the ladies of Mickleover, holders of the Bronze Trophy 2017.  Congratulations also to the ladies of Erewash Valley and Breadsall Priory on being such competitive and worthy finalists.

Our thanks must go to Chevin Golf Club for their generosity in hosting these finals.  Their Lady Captain and all the staff (greenkeepers, office, pro shop and kitchen) did everything to make us welcome and help with the organisation of the day.  The warm hospitality, the splendid course, the fabulous weather and the exciting golf gave us all a glorious day to remember.
