Report by Ladies Seniors Team Manager Aly Nedza:
Herts Ladies Seniors had the beautiful setting of Frilford Heath GC for their match v Oxon on Monday 12th July. Fortunately, the Red course did not suffer too much from the overnight rain, however the rough was the highest and most colourful it has been for years according to the locals. The weather stayed warm, and the sun shone, which I’m sure I brought back from my Welsh holiday the week before!
With Kate Evans (1.6 HI - Frilford Heath) leading their team where the vast majority were Frilford Heath members, Herts were up against it from the onset. COVID isolation affected the Herts squad once again, so reserve Noriko Miyakawa stepped in at short notice to play, for which I am incredibly grateful. All the singles matches were played in fourballs due to tee availability, following COVID reopening, thus making the last group contain a non-counting match, which I happily entered.
Two excellent halves were fought by Lindsay Murray-Gray (Mid Herts) and Michelle Gardner (Brookman’s Park), but the rest of the team battled admirably but lost their matches. Final result Oxon 6 - 1 Herts.
Many thanks to Sandra Moses, Karen Ellam, Lindsay Murray-Gray, Rita Davidson, Michelle Gardner, Noriko Miyakawa and Sarah Hirst-Malin for all your efforts.
