Ladies celebrate after earning historic promotion
CHESHAM & Ley Hill Golf Club Ladies have secured promotion from Division Four of the Bucks County Scratch Teams competition for the first time.
Receiving the trophy was a memorable first for the ladies, who are now keen to repeat their success in Division Three in 2017.
“All of our matches this year were extremely keenly contested, with the trophy-winning team not being known until after the final match of the year”, said the club’s team and scratch trophy co-ordinator, Liz Davies. “Magnolia Park and Oakland Park were both also always in the running, but we, happily for us, emerged victorious with 20 points against Magnolia’s 18.”
Newly-appointed ladies’ captain, Christine Lewis, said: “This great success could not have been achieved without the tireless co-ordinating efforts of Liz, who gave so much of her time and energy to get the teams together, link up with all the other clubs to secure dates to suit everyone’s diary and organise all the logistical details.”
