The Redwood competition was set up almost 30 years ago by John and Pam Redwood who were founder members of LSGC. The Redwood trophy was first presented to the Seniors in 1994 and won by the Ladies Section two years later in 1996. Since then a tremendous tussle is fought out annually between the two sections and has become an important part of their golfing calendar. This year was no different and on 13 July seventeen fourballs competed in round one which resulted in the scores all square at 8 1/2 to 8 1/2.
The scene was set for a nail biting round two on 22 September with fourteen teams participating. The seniors took an early lead when after 5 matches completed they were 3 1/2 to 1 1/2. Early optimism on the part of the seniors was soon quashed when 8 out of the remaining 9 matches went the way of the ladies who triumphed by 9 1/2 to 4 1/2 and overall, over the two rounds by 18 to 13.
Later the trophy was presented to Lady Captain Aideen Roche by Steve Uzzell, Senior’s Captain.
Both sections look forward to doing battle again in 2023.
