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.
The prize winners were:
1st June Kenworthy & Margaret Scales (Rushmere) 108.5

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.
