It couldn’t have been closer or more tense. After 5 matches were completed on a drizzly day at Ingestre, Mickleover were in the lead 3-2.
We waited nervously for the last 2 matches to come down the 18th Fairway only to find that both were in deadlock. So 4 very courageous ladies had no choice but to start on the 1st again in sudden-death play offs.
Newcastle had to win both matches to seal victory. The first play off was won by Newcastle on the 2nd hole so now we were all square. After what seemed like an eternity the second play off returned. Fortunately for us, Newcastle’s lady had kept her cool and won on the 1st.
It was a match to remember and could easily have gone either way. Much credit to all 4 ladies who had to play the extra holes and on whose play the result rested.
Many thanks to the lovely Mickleover ladies who tested us to the end and Ingestre for allowing us to play on their lovely course which was in fantastic condition.
