Mail On Sunday Finals — El Rompido, Spain — November 20-23

A GROUP of 21 Bude members braved a very wet and windy, early morning drive to Bristol Airport on the club’s first leg of their journey to Spain for the Mail On Sunday Finals.

The next three days were to provide some exciting, tense and disappointing moments for all the players, caddies and supporters present.

In the semi-finals, the Bude girls were drawn against the ladies from Chelmsford.

Played in the very best of spirits, Bude dominated the match as they convincingly won 4.5-0.5.

In the final, Bude took on a very strong team from Leigh Golf Club, Warrington.

Despite some very close games, the trophy eventually went to Leigh with a 4-1 victory.

The whole week was an amazing experience for all the team and supporters and although not bringing the trophy back to Cornwall, they very firmly planted Bude on the golfing map and provided the Bude and North Cornwall Ladies Section with so many unforgettable moments.

Many thanks were expressed to all the teams sponsors and supporters back at home and for all the fantastic messages received throughout the week.

Cornwall Team Championship Quarter-Final v Bude at St Enodoc — Sunday, November 27

LAUNCESTON’S Cornwall Team Championship team travelled to St Enodoc for a quarter-final tie against seaside neighbours, Bude.

After the morning forursomes, Launceston were 3-1 down, but Peter Dennis won the ninth man singles match to give them hope.

With Richard Jasper winning the first match in the afternoon and with victories in the middle order from John Harrison, Alan Creber and Chris Turner and a halved match between Jamie Barton and Lawrie Bridges, everything came down to the final match.

Unfortunately for the team, Gavin Wallis was unlucky to lose on the last hole in almost pitch dark as the evening drew in.

The team wished Bude all the best in the semi-finals.
