MNR Scratch League 2017 - Round 1

The first round matches were held at Holme Hall nr Scunthorpe, LIncs on Tuesday 30th May. There were two 18 holes matches to play on the day against two different opponents, on this occasion it was Shropshire in the morning and Staffordshire in the afternoon.
In the morning the team to take on Shropshire was Leonie Muir, Laura Abbott, Jacey Peacock, Charlie Inger and Safi Durant. The girls all played some great golf and each won their matches. The first match in particular was close with Leonie and her opposition Megan carding 8 birdies between them before Leonie eventually closed the match out on the 18th 1 up.
In the afternoon playing Staffordshire the team had a small change with Rebecca Oates playing instead of Safi. Both players were making their debut in the scratch team. Staffordshire, last years league winners, provided some strong opposition. Jacey put the first point on the board for Notts, then Rebecca and Charlie lost their matches before the last two matches came down the 18th hole. Leonie won the 18th to half her match in her second very close match of the day. Laura was all square coming down 18th and had to make an up and down out the greenside bunker to win the hole, giving the team the point that halved the match.
It was a great team effort from the girls and my thanks also go to the parents who accompanied the girls on the trip.
