Challenge Match - between BDLGA and Cotswold Leagues

for the Bath Aqua Glass Bowl



The annual match between the previous year’s winners of the Bristol & District Ladies Golf Alliance league and the Cotswold & District Ladies Golf Alliance league was held on Wednesday 27th March 2019 at Ross on Wye.  The teams played for ‘The Bath Aqua Challenge Bowl’ which was held in brilliant sunshine and Ross looked spectacular with all its massed wood anemones and wild daffodils flowering in the woodland and the birds singing loudly. The players appreciated the new Sheldon greens and said how well they were playing. The matches were closely fought and the final result went to the last game on the 18th green. The winners were Bristol and Clifton: 8 and 6.

Well done to Suzette Worthington, Alex Saunders, Karen Rix, Jane Bell, Alison Leatt, Ali Vyas and Hilda Morris.

The team Captains Suzette Worthington and Jan Armstrong both commented on how refreshing it was to play different opposition. All the visitors were very grateful for Ross’ generous hospitality and delicious tea especially the cheese scones and rhubarb with ginger crumble cake!!

A special thank you to the Ross Ladies’ Captain, Sally Lawrence, who ensured that everything ran smoothly and was delightful company for the BDLGA Chairman whilst watching the matches.
