The Kent Women's 1st Team played the English Women’s County Finals at Stoneham Golf Club (near Southampton in Hampshire) from Friday 16 to Sunday 18 September 2022.
Our Team qualified by winning the South Region County Match Week (CMW) at Burhill (link to https://www.kentgolf.org/news.php?newsitem=747) in June this year. The last time the Kent Team qualified for the English Womens' County Finals was in 2013 (Wilmslow, Cheshire).
Four of the original team who played at Burhill were unable to be at Stoneham due to already having departed for college in the USA as well as an injury. However, we were able to field some more 'mature' players with experience and, with a great team spirit, everyone played their hearts out trying to bring in points for Kent.
Kent had two very close matches losing to Essex (the ultimate winners) and Nottinghamshire by a narrow margin of 3/2. On the last morning Kent were victorious over Cheshire.
Stoneham proved to be a very hilly and challenging course, especially being set up at well over 6,000 yards long. However the weather was very kind to us and everyone had a fantastic time gaining lots of experience and having lots of fun along the way.
