Kingsdown Golf Club

Kingsdown Team wins County Cup Day at Kingsdown!

24 teams competed with 21 clubs being represented in teams of 4.  In addition there were 3 x teams of referees.  The day kicked off with bacon rolls, tea and coffee in the Bar and Dining Room with a Shotgun start at 9am.  A beautiful day for golf, everyone came in happy with glowing remarks about the state of the course with one of the referees commenting that "this is the best course in Wiltshire at the moment". 

There were 3 x Nearest the Pins, two won by Sarah Gee, the current Wiltshire Ladies County Champion, the other one by member Phil Hodges.

Everyone enjoyed varied Sandwiches & Chips and a presentation on England Golf's 'Plans for the Future' and reports on their area of responsibility from the directors of Wiltshire Golf.  A good day enjoyed by all .. and by winning the event it will return here to Kingsdown Golf Club in 2020.

Well done to Captain, Gary Gale-Sides, Jan Scott, Robin Thornton & Shane Lyon - did local knowledge help at all??!!

Big thanks must go to Lynn Thornton and Scott Talbert for organising an extremely efficient and most enjoyable day.
