The mixed foursomes championships played on Sunday over 27 holes of golf is a good test of golf and one where the mixed teams need to complement each others play. Often players find themselves in positions they would not usually encounter. Combining better than the rest was the team of Matt and Nikki Waterworth to win the 2022 mixed foursomes and add their names to the list of winners. Next best was the team of David Reeves and Racheal Hendry for runner up. In the nett event, Keith and Helen Jones came out on top, a half stroke ahead of Mark Hendry and Neta Thouard.
Sponsor for the mixed foursomes championships was the Golf Club.
There is always something of interest which comes out of the mixed event, this year it was an error with some teams playing from the wrong area. Plenty of discussion surrounded the situation and many different interpretations of the rules unsued. It was however settled in the end but disappointing for the teams involved.
Next Saturday id the April monthly medal and putting competition and another chance for players to qualify for the Medal of Medallists later in the year. The day’s stroke event will be sponsored by club member, Richard Reardon and tee off from 11.0 am. The time sheet is on the board.
