Student Success - Golf

On the 12 August, I competed in the England Golf National Women’s Medal Final at Woodhall Spa Golf Club on the Hotchkin course. I had qualified for this from a regional event in early June at Stanton on the Wolds which I won.  

In the evening of the 11 August, a gala dinner was held at the club to celebrate women’s golf week. It was here that I was presented with the trophy for winning my qualifying event. All of the participants in the final were given a free night in the Petwood Hotel with breakfast on the morning of the event and lunch following their round of golf. 

The Hotchkin course is known to be one of the most difficult in the country. I had not played the course before and so was feeling a little apprehensive, especially as it is well known for having 143 bunkers. However, I soon relaxed and enjoyed the challenge of playing a new course. I played 7 under my handicap which was good enough to win the final.
