On what has to have been the hottest day of the year so far, the team gathered at Harewood Downs for a second team match against Buckinghamshire.
We had a great start with a 2-1 advantage after the morning foursomes, and hit the course again at 1pm, the heat was incredible. Six keenly fought single games followed. The Bucks team had fresh legs for a few of their games in the afternoon but our girls are hardy campaigners and played 36 holes in very hot conditions.
Jane Bracknebury fought hard for a well-deserved half, Debbie Ranwell , Chloe Walkington & Vicky Preitzel had good wins.
Overall a great result, in incredibly difficult conditions, well done team a great win.
Harewood Downs, should be re-named Harewood ‘Up & Downs’ – an extremely hilly course.
