West of England Harper Salver 2018

After an hour’s delay due to fog, this prestigious event got underway, with fifty ladies and teenage girls playing two rounds at Bath Golf Club.


The quality of the field was excellent with 11 having a handicap better than scratch and over half the field with a handicap better than 3.  The course was in beautiful condition and the rough and the greens providing their own challenges as expected.


The sun came out before the first round finished and the cool conditions gave way to hot summer sunshine.   This continued for the rest of the day making the golf more of a physical challenge for the competitors.


Lunchtime was necessarily shortened to try and catch up on the morning’s lost hour as many of the competitors had a long drive home. This gave them only a 25-30minute break before they were back on the course in the heat.


Caitlin Whitehead from Carus Green GC was the winner of the Harper Salver with scores of  72 and 72  matching our competition record of 144.  Second was Ebonie Lewis of Long Ashton with 145 and then Katherine O’Connor of West Byfleet with 146.  Emily Brennan of Trentham  came fourth with 148 and Jade Guest of Gog Magog was fifth with 149.


Caley McGinty of Knowle won the Best Gross a.m. Prize with 71 and Ella Hammond-Baveystock of Wentworth won Best Gross p.m. with 70.


First nett prize and winner of the Costeloe Cup was Hannah Golding of Brocton Hall GC with 142, second was Ella Griffiths of The Vale Resort and third on countback was Megan Vineall of Newport also with 144.


The Harper Salver and Costeloe Cup were presented to the winners by Diney Costeloe, a local author who generously sponsors this championship.
