The County Team Chamipionships were held at KIngs Norton Golf Club from 7th to 9th October 2019. A great response from all the counties this year, with 18 teams entered from11 counties. This year we were able to have a 2 tee start which gave us a lot more flexibility with the times due to Kings Norton having 3 9 hole loops. ABBA Party Girls were booked and we were all hoping for a great 3 days. With 5 of the winning jamboree team taking part this year, we were hoping for some great scores.
The weather forecast wasn’t looking great and the course was playing long due the heavy rain over the last 2 weeks. The players didn’t disappoint and Debbie Warren of Staffordshire, playing on her home course, came in on Day 1 with a gross 72 and took the lead whilst giving Staffordshire a great start. This was followed by some good scores by Julie Brown, Jenny Deeley and Sue Spencer and this gave Staffs a good lead going into Day 2.
Everyone rushed back to their hotel to prepare for the entertainment. The evening arrived and as everyone arrived it became a who's who. There were some fantastic outfits and we all entered into the spirit. We were all delighted that the queen payed us a visit and she seemd to enjoy herself as well. The ABBA Girls didn’t disappoint and we all had a great night.
Day 2 and the weather looked promising and, with a few sore heads, play began. The wind picked up and scoring became difficult. Staffs 2 were closing in on their 1st team, but Staffs 1 ended clear winners with Staffs 2 in 2nd place. Debbie Warren took the aggregate gross prize with 151 and Andree Burtt took the O65 gross with 164.
The victorious Staffordshire 1st Team were Debbie Warren, Julie Brown, Jenny Deeley and Sue Spencer.
