  1. Suffolk Seniors fielded a determined team against Bedfordshire Seniors and all of them played well on the day, finishing at three-and-a-half to a half.   The venue was Mowsbury, an undulating parkland course with good fairways and an interesting layout.   Helen Bray whom everyone will remember won the Seniors Championship at Rookery Park in May, displayed some excellent golf, with long precise driving and accurate iron play.  A great and friendly spirit led to a very enjoyable day’s golf.

Coronation Foursomes - Report and Results

A large entry of 56 competitors braved the elements on Thursday 10 July, taking part in this 27 hole Foursomes competition held at Halesworth Golf Club.  Gale force winds buffeted the course for both the morning and afternoon rounds but the players enjoyed the course which was in wonderful condition with fabulous greens.  There was quite a 'buzz' in the clubhouse at the end of the day as the big screen displayed the final scores.  The winners of the beautiful trophies, presented by SLCGA President Ann Graves, were Margaret Scales and June Kenworthy.  It was compliments all round for Eileen Whiting, Ladies' Captain, and her wonderful team of helpers for their warm hospitality, both in the clubhouse and on the course and to the caterers for superb refreshments.  Coronation_Foursomes_Winners

Junior County Match Week (Monday 18 - Wednesday 20 August 2014)
Bury St Edmunds Golf Club

Suffolk are looking forward to hosting this year's Junior County Match Week at Bury St Edmunds.   It will feature our own girls and those from Bedfordshire, Cambs & Hunts, Essex, Hertfordshire and Norfolk.   Essentially, Junior County Week is a lot of fun.  It is taken very seriously by the players of course, but everyone wants them to enjoy the occasion and, for the adults, it's a reminder of how much the young ones can achieve given encouragement and the opportunity to play the game.  

Spectators will be made very welcome over the three days and we do hope you will come and support.

You can find more information under the Junior CMW 2014 heading on the bar above.

The Information Handbook for Players and Parents is available to download (under Downloads on the right hand side of this Page).
