The MVLGA Team Championships were scheduled for 5th – 7th October 2020 at Thorpness Golf Club. This year has proved very challenging for everyone, with COVID 19 overtaking our lives and halting all normality. We are now living in very different times and were all grateful when we could all start playing golf again, so plans were laid to try and make our team championships happen. This proved a test and, out of 20 teams originally entered, we were able to put the tournament on with 13 teams, all excited about making the trip to the coast. I had been over for a meeting during August and everything was beginning to take shape. I had also met with Scott Allison to begin the process of inputting all the information onto Golf Box. This would enable us to score on line, and access all the results and pretty much make us all Covid safe. I am pleased to say everyone took this on board and with only a few glitches all ran smoothly.
After a lot of rain on Sunday and a very wet course, we were assured by Becky Brewerton, ex LET Tour, that within an hour the greens would have drained. She wasn’t wrong and we enjoyed a relatively dry day. The greensome competition gives players an opportunity to see the course and work out their strategies for the forthcoming days in a fun environment.
