The counties who enter are Staffordshire,Derbyshire,Nottinghamshire,South Yorkshire,Leicestershire & Rutland and South Lancashire.
Sue Clarke has captained the 12-24 Interclub Knockout Handicap and the Taskers teams for the last 4 years. This year has been a great success for both teams. The 12-24 team narrowly lost 3-2 in the semi-final against Aston Wood and the Taskers team won through to the final of the Ian Burtoft Trophy.
The Taskers team beat Charnwood Forest in a closely fought semi-final 4-3.
The team played Branston Golf and Country Club in theTaskers final at Wollaton Park on Sunday 8th October.
It was a close match ,resulting in a loss for the WHGC Ladies but a great day was had by all. £100 was donated to our Junior Section at WHGC.
Sue would like to thank all those who have played, caddied and supported the teams this year. Sue says she is chuffed to bits with the results this year.
Lastly, the Mail On Sunday competition finished in 2016 and has been replaced by the Annodata Match Play team competition. Jayne Fletcher captained our team which unfortunately lost in the quarter finals to Kibworth Golf Club. So, no trip to Spain this year. Well done and many thanks again to all who played, caddied and supported this competition.
The Ladies section has had a fabulous year let’s hope we can continue next year.Well done girls.
