Lewis Hackett, Billy Wright and Sam Done represented Kenwick Park in the 2014 Lincolnshire County Trials.

This 36 hole event was held on a very windy day at Market Rasen. Sam Done shot the best round of the day scoring an outstanding 38 points in the afternoon to claim victory.

Kenwick’s junior coaching programme is clearly paying dividends with head coach Paul Spence deserving a great deal of credit for Sam’s ever growing stature within the county’s set up.

The A team took on the B team in their annual match. After enjoying a full English breakfast, the 28 players taking part keenly contested all seven matches.

Ashton Turner and Sam Done won their match 6 and 4 after playing the first 14 holes in seven under par. Chris Hunt and Chris Winney won a point back for the B team with a 3 and 2 victory. Eventually the A team won with a 4.5 to 2.5 result.

The Kenwick ladies played an individual stableford in very windy conditions for the first trophy competition of this year.

Julie Harvey (12) won the silver division trophy with 35 points. Ladies Captain Birdie Dawson (9) was runner-up with 31.

In the bronze division, Jo Herring (29) was victorious with 35 and Rose Stevenson (36) was second with 34.

Welcome wall to wall sunshine greeted the ladies playing the March medal. It was a tussle between sisters Sue Fisher (14) and Birdie Dawson (9) in the silver division with Sue winning with a net score of 79 on a countback from Birdie who took the second overall prize.

Sarah Durrant was delighted to win the bronze division with a score of 112 - 31 = 81.
