Wiltshire Ladies Victorious over the Royal Navy Ladies!

Wiltshire & Royal Navy Teams

Wiltshire County Ladies vs Royal Navy Ladies Golf team was a new fixture in the calendar this year. The format was 4 x foursomes matches in the morning followed by 8 singles matches in the afternoon, all off scratch. The Wiltshire team knew they would have a tough match on their hands as the RN Ladies are the 2022 UK Armed Forces Champions and the current Royal Navy Sports Team of the year.

The morning foursome matches were very closely contested with some exceptional golf being played, but the match was all tied at the lunchtime break.
