Girls Golf Match Reports 2018

There was a fine win for the Girls in their opening match at Druids Heath GC. Click here for the results sheet

Captain Imogen Rafferty has given the following report for the matches against Leicestershire and Lincolnshire at Ashbourne:

What a  great day at Ashbourne for the Derbyshire Girls as we started the season with scratch matches against Leicestershire and Lincolnshire.  We knew the matches would be tough – as we lost all our games last year – but I had a good feeling about today and huge faith in the team.

 

First up Leicestershire with Hannah leading the way, followed by me, Lucy, Jenna, and Jess making her scratch team debut.  What a performance!!  We all played great and showed great character.  Lucy got her first scratch match win with an impressive 4 & 3 victory, and I managed to sneak my match 8 & 6!!  Hannah managed to halve her match with an excellent 8 on the last ;), showing great nerve to hold the final putt.  Jess battled hard against a much lower handicapper before finally conceding defeat and Jenna so nearly won the match for us only losing her match on the 18th.  It couldn’t have been closer but we were delighted to draw the match 2 ½  - 2 ½.

 

We barely had time to congratulate each other (or eat our lunch) before we had to go out again against a very strong Lincolnshire team.  We had Eleanor making her scratch team debut where her opponent’s handicap was over half hers, and to get so far showed amazing determination and great golf.  I was also very impressed with Hannah, taking a 3 handicapper to the 17th, even after witnessing her incredible birdie, birdie, par, birdie start! I also learned that it is not as great idea to give such good golfers 4 hole head starts, and Lucy and Jenna put up battling performances in defeat.

 

Thanks to all the parents for coming and supporting the team, Maggie for the motivating card, and it was lovely to see Sally Benn, who was the organiser when I made my county scratch debut 4 years ago. But especially thank you to Alice who organised the event, and most importantly drove the team forward and supported us for every match.

 

I am extremely proud of the whole team yesterday, we all showed great team spirit, determination, and ability. We also had a really great day, and thank you all for coming and playing so brilliantly. Now after such a promising start, leaving us all motivated to improve- I say bring on Staffordshire!

Centenary Salvers

I thoroughly enjoyed the day at Broughton Heath and I hope you all did too! It’s a brilliant way to end the season and I saw some fantastic golf being played. Derbyshire is lucky to have such a great group of girl golfers and it really is exciting and very rewarding being part of their progress. Ladies, thank you for your support, please keep up the great work you are doing to encourage and welcome girls into golf at your clubs.
