Julia, who is the ladies’ county president, and county chairman Tracey helped their team to a total of 81 points in the am-am competition to win on countback over teams from Leicestershire and Rutland, and Hertfordshire.

They snatched the win by virtue of their back nine of 42 points, with all four players contributing well to the total.

County president-elect Les said: “We were in danger of having some bad holes, but we holed some crucial putts and as a team gelled nicely.”
