Champions, Again!


Patricia Fernon, Cerys Jenkins, Chris. Harries, Jordan Ryan, County Captain
Annette Brimble, Ffion Vineall, Ellie Willis, Vice Captain Mary Woolard and
Rhiannon Thomas 'flying the flag' for Monmouthshire Ladies!

For the fourth time in five years we are Welsh Ladies' County Champions
following victory in the Championships held at Prestatyn G.C. in North Wales.

This year the format was broadened to include a semi-final stage with the winners
of the South Wales section playing the second placed North Wales team and the
North Wales section winners playing the second placed South Wales team.

Thus, Sunday morning saw us playing the hosts, Denbigh & Flintshire,
in the foursomes and wins for Rhiannon Thomas & Ellie Willis by 4&2 and
Cerys Jenkins & Ffion Vineall by 3&2 meant we went into lunch with a 2 -1 lead.

The afternoon singles brought wins for Rhiannon Thomas and Cerys Jenkins,
both by 5&3, and Ffion Vineall by 2&1 to reach the necessary five points
for an unassailable lead so the remaining games were called in.

Glamorgan beat Mid Wales in the other semi-final so the Final
on Monday was between the South Wales rivals.

The morning foursomes again resulted in a 2 - 1 lunch time lead
following wins for Cerys Jenkins & Ffion Vineall by 3&2
and by 1 hole for Jordan Ryan & Chris. Harries.

The afternoon singles saw wins forRhiannon Thomas by 4&3,
Jordan Ryan (1 hole) and Cerys Jenkins by 4&3,
with Ffion Vineall lying dormi 2 as the remaining games
were called in with our victory assured.

 

Congratulations!
To Patricia Fernon and Chris. Harries on their selection for the
Wales team to compete in the Senior Ladies Home Internationals
Championship at Alyth Golf Club in Scotland on 27th - 29th September.

The Practice Day at the traditional seaside links course was fine and calm,
however, the weather on the competition day, whilst still fine,
featured a very strong wind which made the difficult course even more so!

Winners ~ Again!

For the third time in the last four years we are
Welsh Inter Counties Team Champions
following our success in defeating Denbigh and Flintshire
in the Final, held at St. Mellons Golf Club yesterday.

Wins, both by 2 & 1, for the pairings of Angharad Evans & Lauren Hillier
and Chris. Harries & Jo. Waite in the morning Foursomes for a 2 -1 lead
meant that three wins from the six afternoon singles would clinch the
title for the third time in four years following the wins against Mid Wales
at Ashburnham in 2012 and Royal Porthcawl last year.

In the afternoon singles wins in the first three games, by Lauren Hillier
(2&1), Angharad Evans (also 2&1), and Rhiannon Thomas (6&4) meant that
victory was secured so, despite Chris Harries, Ffion Vineall and Jo. Waite
all being up in the last three games, these were conceded to bring an end
the match for a nominal 5 - 4 win.

A copy of the official Team Sheet can be viewed/downloaded by CLICKING HERE


Flying the Flag at St. Mellons are: (L to R) Mary Woollard, Lauren Hillier, Jo. Waite,
Vice Captain Annette Brimble, County Captain Judith Wenman, Rhiannon Thomas,
Angharad Evans, Ffion Vineall and Chris. Harries.

 

The Dorothy Meacock Foursomes
The Semi finals and Final were played on the same day at Newport Golf Club

The Welsh Inter-Counties Team Championship
match with Glamorgan was played at Newport Golf Club on 30th July
and resulted in a win by 5 games to 4.

We were 1 -2 down after the morning foursomes but three wins and two halves
in the afternoon singles means that, after our halved match with
Carmarthen and Pembrokeshire at Tenby, everything now hangs on the result
of the Glamorgan v Carmarthen/Pembrokeshire match at the end of the month
to decide which county represents the South group in the final at St. Mellons G.C.
A halved match or a Glamorgan win will see us go through,
if Carmarthen/Pembrokeshire win by better than 5 - 4 then they will progress.
The team was: Chris. Harries, Patricia Fernon, Lauren Hillier,
Jessica Evans, Angharad Evans and Rhiannon Thomas.

All Square at Tenby

The first of this seasons County Matches took place at the warm (very!)
and breezy links course at Tenby Golf Club on Monday
against a very strong Carmarthen and Pembrokeshire side
that included the three top local members.


The match was a hard fought, exciting, nail biting affair
with the outcome in doubt until the last game on the course.


A win for the pairing of Chris Harries and Jordan Ryan and a halved game
for the Cerys Jenkins/Rhiannon Thomas partnership ensured that
the morning foursomes ended level at one and a half points each.

The conditions for the afternoon singles were very testing
with a combination of an increasing sea breeze and
the rising temperature making a very testing course even more difficult.
However all the ladies played really well and wins for Rhiannon Thomas
and Cerys Jenkins meant that the result hung on the last game
on the course where Jordan Ryan ensured that
the match finished all square by winning at the 16th hole.

Champions!!
~ Again!

For the second time in three years we are Welsh Ladies' County Champions.

In a terrific team effort, with all six players contributing, we successfully overcame the absence of Jessica Evans, Lauren Hillier and Jordan Ryan, all on duty with the Wales Ladies' team, to overcome Mid Wales by 5 - 4 in a very exciting and close match on the links of Royal Porthcawl Golf Club yesterday.

In complete contrast to the weather at Ashburnham on our last meeting, two years ago, yesterday was a fine sunny day, although, as would be expected at Porthcawl, there was a stiff breeze to cool things down a little and make the golf even more challenging.

In the morning foursomes, victories for the pairings of Angharad Evans & Rhiannon Thomas and Danielle Cobley & Chris. Harries meant that we went in to lunch with what turned out to be a crucial 2 - 1 advantage.


In the afternoon singles, Cerys Jenkins had a comfortable 5 & 3 victory over Sharon Roberts and Patricia Fernon overcame Sadie Dewington-Davies 3 & 2 but the other 4 games were all tight, fluctuating affairs, with three of them being decided in favour of Mid Wales on the 17th green. So, eventually, it all came down to the last game on the course as Danielle Cobley and Judith Davies, in front of what was by now a large gallery, teed off on the last hole all square with Mid Wales 3 - 2 up in the afternoon matches. However, Danielle held her nerve to win the hole with a par and the game by 1 up to give us the victory 5 -4.

It is all smiles from Rhiannon Thomas, Angharad Evans, Patricia Fernon,County Captain Judith Wenman, Cerys Jenkins, Danielle Cobley, Jo. Waite & Chris Harries in the evening sunshine at Royal Porthcawl.

County Championships ~ Day 3

The early fog threatened by the weather forcast did not materialise so the Semi Finals went ahead as planned.

The Championship Semi Finals saw comfortable wins, both by 5 & 4, for Defending Champion Jessica Evans over Caroline Cole and current Welsh Under 16 Strokeplay Champion Jordan Ryan over Cerys Jenkins to set up a final between Newport clubmates Jessica and Jordan.

The final turned out to be an extremely pulsating affair and Jessica and Jordan arrived at the 18th tee all square. Jordan played her second shot to the green first and Jessica then hit a wonderful shot over the bunker to inches from the flag. This left Jordan with a longish putt to take the match up the 19th but it just lipped out so Jessica became County Champion for the third time in four years following her previous sucesses at Newport in 2011 and Woodlake Park last year.

Jessica Evans ~ County Champion 2014

The Bronze Division Semi Finals saw Janice Williams of Newport G.C.beat Marian Workman and Eleanor Willis of St. Pierre G.C. overcome Pat Perkins to set up a 'Senior' v 'Junior' Final with Eleanor, who celebrated her 13th birthday during the qualifying round on Wednesday, thoroughly enjoying her very first taste of matchplay golf.

In the Final Janice quickly went three holes up but Eleanor showed maturity beyond her years to claw her way back into the game and had levelled by the 13th hole. She then proceded to win the next three to win Bronze Championship Final by 3 & 2.

The Tenby 36 hole Scratch Competition
was held on Sunday, the 13th of April, and seven of the Monmouthshire Ladies/Girls were among the 32 who played the two rounds on the challenging links course.

In the morning round Angharad Evans did very well to score a Nett 75, one under the Competition Standard Scratch which was 76 on the par 75 course, whilst both Rhiannon Thomas and Lauren Hillier matched the CSS with Nett 76.


In Lauren's case this was also her gross score, as she plays off scratch, and she went on to match that score in the afternoon round and secure overall second place in the competition (and a voucher for £125) behind current Welsh Ladies Champion and International, Becky Harries of Haverfordwest, with another current Welsh International, Chloe Williams of Wrexham, in third place.

R.I.P.

With great sadness we learn of the death on Wednesday 21st August of
Miss Pat Roberts M.B.E., Vice President of the County Association.

The following tribute was given by Jill Edwards M.B.E.
former President of the Ladies Golf Union at Pat's Funeral

MARGARET PATRICIA ROBERTS M.B.E

1921 – 2013

We are here to celebrate the long, successful and rewarding life of our friend Pat.  Born in Haverfordwest from a golfing family (her father was a scratch golfer). 

Her sister Joan, who died last year aged 102 was also a golfer and represented Denbighshire County for over 30 years and played for Wales in the Home International Matches with Pat in 1955.

During the war Pat was in the ATS and drove military lorries up and down the country, stopping at bad B&Bs on the long journeys  over poor roads.  She talked about lorries with great glee and continued to enjoy driving all her life, albeit in smaller vehicles.

Pat moved to Newport in 1947 where she met Iris Burge and became her foursomes partner for the Monmouthshire County Team.  Pat went to live with Iris and her husband Graham in Llanhennock and worked with Graham at Searle & Burge, solicitors.  Pat lived with Iris and Graham for many years.  After both Graham and later Iris died Pat moved to her home in Caerleon, left to her by Iris.

Pat was a very proud Godmother to Nichola Burge and enjoyed the friendship and support of June and Ian Burge and their family until her recent death.

I feel sure you will have many happy memories of time spent with Pat who filled her life with playing golf and afterwards with the administration of the game in Wales.  She approached both with great expertise and dedication and many of us will have experiences a little fear if we didn't match Pat's exacting standards.

Pat was a great golfer, won Championships and played golf at all levels.  Pat loved Newport Golf club and was proud of its course and traditions.  She won the Club Championship 25 times and represented Newport in League and Welsh Team Club matches for many years.

Pat won the Monmouthshire County Championship 18 times and represented the County for many years as player, Captain, President and Life Vice President.

Pat was Welsh Champion four times and represented Wales in the Home International matches from 1948 until 1970.   She also played in three European Team events and at the first Welsh Amateur Team Championships in 1964.  I travelled to Paris as a supporter.  During a visit to see Pat in hospital in June, I told her of my imminent visit to Paris to watch the 2013 Vagliano Trophy Match.  She laughed with me as I reminded her of the fun we had had together in 1964 on the golf course but also as Pat drove Iris Burge's car through the street of Paris on the wrong side of the road.  Happy recollections of nearly 50 years ago.

Pat was also Captain of the Welsh Team, Vice Captain of the Great Britain and Ireland 1966 and 1968 Curtis Cup Teams and the 1971 Vagliano Trophy Team.  Pat was also Manager of the Commonwealth Team in Canada 1967, which was won by GB&I.  Towards the end of her playing career Pat became Chairman of the Welsh Ladies' Golf Union and took on her role as Honorary Secretary of the Welsh Union in 1970 having retired from International golf.  Pat loved her role as Honorary Secretary and her attention to detail ensured the smooth running of the Championships and general administration of ladies' golf in Wales for over 20 years.  Pat was President from 1993 to 1999 and was made a Member of the Order of the British Empire (MBE) in 1993 for services to golf in Wales.  So richly deserved.  Pat is also  a member of the Welsh Sports Hall of Fame.
Pat continued her long association with Newport Golf Club as Captain of the Ladies' Section in 1954 and 1964.  She was awarded Life Membership in 1970 and elected as Life Vice President of the Club in 2003.  Pat became Treasurer of the Ladies' section in 1990 and was very pleased to be involved with the 2003 Centenary Year when she was made Life Vice President.

On a personal note, I have known Pat for over 50 years.  We played for opposing County Teams but together for Wales in Home International Matches and European Team Championships.  Pat attended my wedding and some special birthdays and we enjoyed her 90th birthday in the beautiful home of June and Ian Burge.

We had great fun together and both enjoyed a love of good food and wine.

My final words are from Tegwen Matthews, current successful Curtis Cup Captain from Cardiff, now living in South Africa who on hearing of Pat's death wrote:

“Rest in Peace Pat Roberts.  Welsh Golfing Legend whose commitment and dedication to Welsh Golf was immeasurable – a very, very special lady”.

Reminders
Buggies:
May only be used in certain Competitions when supported by a current Doctor's Medical Certificate.
Please note that they may
NOT be used in the County Championships.

Measuring devices
The Golf Union of Wales have decided that the use of distance measuring devices [DMDs]
will be permitted in all GUW Championships and Events.
It was therefore decided at the County Meeting held at The Parc G.C. on 7th February that Monmouthshire Ladies should follow suit and allow DMDs in County Competitions subject to the following regulation:

A player may obtain distance information by using a device that measures distance only. If, during a stipulated round, a player uses a distance measuring device that is designed to gauge or measure other conditions that might affect her play (eg gradient, windspeed, temperature etc) the player is in breach of Rule 14-3 for which the penalty is disqualification, regardless of whether any such additional function is actually used.



12/4/13

The Golf Union of Wales have instituted a new Championship this year ~ The Welsh Mid Amateur Championship. It is aimed at those aged 30 or above with a handicap of 15 or less and is to be staged alongside the Welsh Amateur Closed Championship at Nefyn on 19th & 20th of May with a practice on 18th May. Entries close on Monday 22nd April.

County Championships

The County Championships were held in the traditional  slot of Easter week although the overnight frost and the bitter Easterly wind made it seem more like Christmas than Easter.  However 40 entrants in each of the two divisions braved the cold for the Stroke play Qualifiers,  with the Bronze Division being held at Monmouth Golf Club and the Silver Division at Woodlake Park.  The 16 best gross scores at Monmouth then joined their silver division colleagues at Woodlake Park Golf Club for the match play stages.

At Monmouth the best Nett Score and the Coronation Medal was won by Sarah Payne of Newport Golf Club with Joan Bool of Bryn Meadows second. Beryl Young of St. Pierre Golf Club achieved the best gross score and led the sixteen qualifiers to Woodlake Park as top seed.  The sixteen included two  members of the County Junior Squad and both were destined to make a mark.

 In the first round, at the bottom of the draw, Sophie Madsen of St. Mellons Golf Club, six weeks before her 14th birthday, beat the number 2 seed Sarah Payne by 2 & 1 to move into the quarter final where she then lost by 3 & 2 to Patricia John of Newport Golf Club.  Patricia then beat Sue Edwards of  Monmouth Golf Club by 3 & 2 to get to the Final.

 At the top of the draw, top seed Beryl Young reached the Semi Final with wins by 4 & 2 over Claire Bartlett of Pontnewydd Golf Club and by 2 up over Janice Williams of Newport Golf Club.  In the Semi Final Beryl came up against the other Junior, 14 year old  Rhian Morgan of St. Pierre Golf Club, and it was Rhian who came out on top with a 3 & 2 win.  Rhian then kept up her good form to beat Patricia by 5 & 4  and become Bronze Division Champion.

In the Silver Division Stroke play Qualifying round at Woodlake Park,  the best gross and number one seed for the Match play stages was Welsh International Jessica Evans of Newport Golf Club with Danielle Cobley of Pontnewydd Golf Club second.  Carolyn Pritchard of Llanwern Golf Club won the prize for best Nett , with Jane Paske of Woodlake Park second and Welsh Senior International Christine Harries from Llanwern Golf Club, won the prize for the best Gross score by a Senior Lady.

The match play event saw the Semi final stage reached by 3 past Champions:
Jessica Evans who beat County Selector Catherine Nutley of Dewstow Golf Club by 4 & 3 and Welsh Senior International Patricia Fernon,  also of Dewstow Golf Club by 2 up;
Cerys Jenkins of Bryn Meadow Golf Club who beat Caroline Cole of Monmouthshire Golf Club and Carolyn Pritchard of Llanwern Golf Club by 5 & 3;
and Danielle Cobley who beat Jessica Gabriel of Pontypool Golf Club by 5 & 4 and Rhiannon Thomas of St. Pierre Golf Club by 2 up.
They were joined by 15 year old Jordan Ryan of Newport Golf Club who had done excellently by beating Jo. Waite of St. Mellons Golf Club by 5 & 3 and Chris Harries by 5 & 4.
Both Semi Final matches ended in 2 & 1 wins, for Jessica over Jordan and Danielle over Cerys.  That was also the score in the final with Jessica clinching victory to become Champion for the second time in 3 years.
However Danielle also had something to celebrate ~ it was her 21st birthday!

The Barbara Francis Memorial Trophy for the best performance at the Championships by a girl in the County Junior Squad was won by Rhian Morgan

The Paton Cup, awarded to the club with the four best Nett scores in the Stroke play Stages of the Championship was won by Newport Golf Club with the  scores of Jessica Evans, Jordan Ryan, Sarah Payne and Emma Miller being the ones to count.

We are the Champions!

L to R: Cerys Jenkins, Rhiannon Thomas, Chris Harries,Jessica Evans, Angharad Evans, Lauren Hillier, Ann Booth [Captain] & Patricia Fernon flying the flag for Monmouthshire.

Sunday, 23rd September at Ashburnham was a cold, very wet and extremely windy day but, never the less, it turned out to be 'Red Letter' day for Monmouthshire Ladies Golf as we beat last years winners, Mid Wales, to become the Welsh Ladies' County Champions for the first time!

In the morning Foursomes, the pairing of Lauren Hillier and Angharad Evans got the first point on the board with a 3 & 1 win but the other two games were lost to leave the lunchtime score 2 - 1 to Mid Wales.

The rain stopped for a short while during the afternoon singles but then came back with a vengeance together with a near gale force wind off the sea. However, as they had done in the last round against Glamorgan, the Monmouthshire ladies coped better with the elements than their Mid Wales opponents as the first four games produced wins by 6 & 4 for Lauren Hillier, by 7 & 6 for Jessica Evans, by 7 & 6 for Rhiannon Thomas and by 4 & 2 for Chris Harries to achieve the magic, winning, 5 point mark, so the final two games were conceded to allow the ladies to escape what were by now the worse conditions of the day and return to the comfort of the Clubhouse.

Despite the dark clouds at Ashburnham, with three of the winning team still teenagers, two in their twenties and two Welsh Ladies' Senior Internationals, the future looks bright for
Monmouthshire Ladies Golf!

 

5/9/12

After the storms on the previous afternoon, Friday [13th!!] turned out to be a much better day with warm sunshine after a rather chilly 7.15 a.m. start and some excellent golf was played on a course that had stood up remarkably well to the weather.

In the Silver Division the results of the unfinished second round matches saw all four of the top seeds win their games with Jessica Evans winning against Rhiannon Thomas, Cerys Jenkins overcoming County Captain Ann Booth, Danielle Cobley beating Jo. Waite and Lauren Hillier winning against Patricia Fernon.

This brought the Championships back on schedule with the semi-finals bringing together four previous Champions ~ 2011 Champion, Jessica Evans playing 2009 Champion Cerys Jenkins in game 1 with 2010 Champion Danielle Cobley and Lauren Hillier [who had been Champion several times as Lauren Diggle] in game 2.

Again the games went with the seeding to bring Jessica Evans and Lauren Hillier together for the Final. There Lauren, who plays off +1, regained the trophy, remarkably just ten weeks after giving birth to son Milo.

In the Bronze Division the unfinished second round games saw the following results:
Janet Cavaciuti beat Pauline Forbes
Linda Young beat Beryl Young
Rosemary Ford beat Noelyn Allen
Ruth Stafford beat Chris Jones

In the Semi- finals County Junior Organiser Janet Cavaciuti just pipped Linda Young with the last putt of the game and Rosemary Ford beat Ruth Stafford to book her place in the Bronze Final which is to be played at St. Mellons on Tuesday with a Tee time of 9.00 a.m.

The Paton Cup for the best team at the Championships based on the four best Nett scores in either division in the qualifying rounds was won for the second year running by Dewstow, with the quartet of Catherine Nutley, Patricia Fernon, Deborah Hudson and Kate Stevens and a total of 303.

Reminders
Buggies:
May only be used in certain Competitions when supported by a current Doctor's Medical Certificate.
Please note that they may
NOT be used in the County Championships.

Measuring devices
The Golf Union of Wales have decided that the use of distance measuring devices [DMDs]
will be permitted in all GUW Championships and Events.
It was therefore decided at the County Meeting held at The Parc G.C. on 7th February that Monmouthshire Ladies should follow suit and allow DMDs in County Competitions subject to the following regulation:

A player may obtain distance information by using a device that measures distance only. If, during a stipulated round, a player uses a distance measuring device that is designed to gauge or measure other conditions that might affect her play (eg gradient, windspeed, temperature etc) the player is in breach of Rule 14-3 for which the penalty is disqualification, regardless of whether any such additional function is actually used.

Lena Davidson

As most probably know, Lena Davidson has retired as County Secretary after serving for twenty years on the County Committee, the last ten of them as Secretary.

To mark the occasion Libby Hutchings organised a 'surprise' retirement party for her at Llanwern Golf Club on 16th November. This was very well attended by ladies, and some gentlemen, from many of the County Clubs. Lena said she was quite overwhealmed by the support and felt very humble. She would like to thank all who came and, in particular, Libby for organising the event and Les Dodd, Secretary at Pontypool Golf Club, for the lovely poem he recited for her..

The County Luncheon
was held at Dewstow G.C. on 30th August with the rather disppointing number of 36 ladies attending, 26 of them from the home club. The Captain thanked those who did come for supporting the Lunch event, and everyone was delightfully entertained by Bethan Keeble who gave a piano recital. Bethan, who is studying music at Cardiff university with the aim of becoming a professional musician also uses her music for therapy. Her principal instrument is the Oboe but her recital at the lunch showed that she could also play a mean piano.

Congratulations:

To Christine Harries of Llanwern Golf Club who is the Welsh Senior Ladies Champion for 2011 after clinching the title at Abergele Golf Club in North Wales. Chris carded rounds of 76 & 78 against the course par of 74 to finish on + 6 and win by one shot from Jane Rees of Hendon in a field that included former Curtis Cup player Vikki Thomas. She has also been selected to play for Wales in the Senior Ladies Home International Matches at Tramor Golf Club in Ireland.

To Chris Rossiter and Roberta Budd of Newport Golf Club, who, having won the Regional Final of The Coronation Foursomes held at Cradoc Golf Club with 39 points, qualified for the National Final of the event which was held over the Eden Course at St. Andrews where they gained a very creditable fourth place with 31 points.
