2016 Cambs & Hunts Veterans v Essex Veterans

In bright but breezy conditions Cambs and Hunts Veterans played their annual match against Essex at Bourn Golf Club.

In the top match Mo Poole (Bourn) and Geraldine Fleming (St Ives) had a closely fought match against Trish Wilson and Sue Lines-Poulton. The match was all square at the half-way stage but the Essex pair gradually pulled ahead to win 3 & 2. In the second match Grace Eastment (The Cambridgeshire) and Kay Osborne (Brampton Park) played against Mandy Rix and Philipa Deman. They put up a brave battle but just lost out finishing 2 down.

The third match between Tina Broadley (Ely City) and Helen Verrechia (Bourn), making her debut, and Joan Smith and Toni Brookwell, the Cambs and Hunts pair played some excellent golf to take and early lead and maintain that level of play to run out comfortable 7 & 5 winners.

In the final match Rosemary Farrow (St Neots) and Sue Hill (Girton) played against Julie Race and Judy Pryke. This was another evenly contested match with the Essex pair clinching the match 1 up on the final hole. The overall match result was a 3 -1victory to Essex.
