Australian Spoons MNR Final

IMG 3670How wonderful it was to welcome 36 foursomes pairs from across the region to the regional final of the Australian Spoons on 12th July at Ruddington Grange Golf Club,Nottinghamshire. The winners were Josie Connolly and Penny Richardson, Ruddington Grange GC, with 39 points. Josie and Penny will be representing the region at the National Final at Woodhall Spa GC during England Golf week in August - play well ladies and do the region proud! They were presented with their trophies and prize vouchers at a club event a few days after the regional final.

Second with 37 points were Nicky Whitton and Ann Meadows, Aston Wood GC on countback from Elaine Chappell and Alison Boyes, Lutterworth GC, 37 points. Fourth with 32 points were Helen Linnington and Jill Woodford, Erewash Valley GC on countback from Gretta Blackburn and Bridget Biggs, Chevin GC.

My thanks to Simon Bloor and the staff at Ruddington Grange for their support before and during the competition. Special thanks to Gini Whitehead, Lady Captain at Ruddington, for her support and to her ladies section who provided the starters and a welcome break for cakes and drinks at the Halfway House. Finally thank you to all who have supported the competition at their clubs and at the regional final especially during these unprecedented times.
