Somerset duo win England Golf Trust Women’s Stableford final

Emelia Pearce and Bina Tomes of Mendip Spring Golf Club in North Somerset, have won the final of the England Golf Trust Women’s Stableford Competition.

After a fabulous day of golf at Kings Norton, the duo from Somerset won by two points with an overall score of 41 in this Four-Ball Better-Ball final.

This year’s tournament was entered by 2371 golfers from 102 clubs and raised more than £7000 for the Trust. “It has been another good year for the tournament,” said Moira Page, Chair of the Trust. “The money we have raised will make a big difference to the lives of young golfers.”

Thirty teams from all over England made it through to the much-anticipated finals day, at King’s Norton Golf Club in the West Midlands – one of the country’s finest parkland venues.

The course had benefited from the summer of unsettled weather which has brought plenty of rain – with lush fairways and superb greens was in excellent condition.

After the win, Bina said: “We only ever played once together before finding we were partnered together in the final through our club qualifying round.  But something clicked on the day with a combination of youth and experience, we both really enjoyed the opportunity to play in the final.”

“Our playing partners Linda Hunt and Kerry Barlow from Newbury & Crookham were great company and made the round for us.”

Her playing partner 15-year-old Emelia, already enjoying a successful year after winning the Mendip Spring Junior Championship and Ladies Championship said: “We’re over the moon to have won and have had such a lovely day.”

Renowned golfer Bridget Jackson MBE presented the cup which she donated to the England Golf Trust along with a crystal bowl each. Winners take the bowls back to their home clubs to commemorate the win. Prizes were also presented to the four pairs of runners up.

The day included afternoon tea for the finalists and goody bag as a memento.
