Four Long Sutton lady members were part of the winning Somerset County Seniors team who played against Gloucestershire County Senior Team at The Mendip Spring Golf Club on the 27th June.The weather was hot but there was also a very strong wind, which made conditions quite tricky.
Amandy Head lead the first match out and with her partner from Bath GC, Mandy played some superb golf to win 7/6 . Connie Stolworthy paired up with a Wheathill player and they halved their game on the 18th hole. Angela Baker, Club Captain elect, with her partner from Mendip Spring GC put in a very strong performance to win on the 18th hole. Pat Whitehead, a player known for her strong match play, with her partner from Bath, also won on the 18th hole. Pat's short game was especially effective.
The final result was 4.1/2 to 3.1/2, a great win for Somerset. It has been said before but Long Sutton Ladies are the backbone of County Senior Golf. The County Senior President Caroline Lumley Frank, again from Long Sutton, supported the players throughout the day.
