Ladies cel­e­brate af­ter earn­ing his­toric pro­mo­tion

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - SPORT -

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.”
