Samantha Stanbridge wins the County Cup
Congratulations to Samantha Stanbridge who won the County Cup 2019
This cup is opened to the second division category & is played on the same day as the Women’s County Championship semis & Final day.
Samantha Stanbridge (Chalgrave Manor) won her semi-finals 5&4 against Debbie Newnham-Davies (Bedford & County). Sue Cribb (Bedfordshire) won her semi-finals on the 18th Hole against Julia Thompson (The Bedford). In the final, Samantha continued her form with another comfortable win. Commiserations to Sue but there was no stopping the big hitting Sam. Samantha has only been playing a year and she started the week on a handicap of 23 but after her steady round of 72 played on the Thursday in 2nd division spring meeting, Sam now plays off 19. Her excellent and steady play over the last couple of months saw her handicap cut under the exceptional scoring reductions (ESR).
Thank you to Bedford & County for hosting the event. The course was in excellent conditions and thank you to everyone at the club for the hospitality shown to all. Thank you to everyone who came to support the event. Thank you to Joan Cocksedge for refereeing the match. Congratulations to all finalists.
BLCGA County President Claudine Tate presented the prizes.
