On Monday 24th March a team of 20 members accepted the challenge of playing some of the best County Lady Veteran players over the Leek course as part of a series of warm up events before the forthcoming season. The Ladies were selected from all over the County and were thrilled to receive their County uniforms from their Captain Sue Simmons and their Vice Captain our very own Jenny Cordon.
“We all know how fortunate we are at Leek with the condition of our course and in particularly our greens but for this prestigious match it was fantastic. Lincoln Boulton and the Greens staff have done an amazing job over the winter and continue to exceed our expectations” said the Club Captain Dave Gallimore. Sue Simmons, the Lady Captain who is a member from Sandwell remarked on how good the condition was and went on to say that our course at the moment, is better than the likes of Little Aston and Whittington Heath.
The match itself was a good battle played in the best of sporting traditions with the Gentlemen winning by a score of 6.5 to 3.5 with many games reaching their climax on the 18th green. As always at Leek the Gentlemen offered wonderful hospitality to the Ladies.
Club Vice Captain, Trevor Eccleston who organised the match would like to thank everybody who represented Leek Golf Club during their respective matches and would also like to thank the Ladies of the County Veterans Team for making the social side of these friendly matches such a positive experience for everyone involved.
