Excellent news this week for both our men's and ladies' teams.

Firstly, on Sunday 14th August Bath 1st played their final match away against Saltford and won 3-2.

Pete Forster & Richard Longhurst won 2up

Simon Harris & Stefano Maio won 5&4

Nigel Crichton & Jim Brown lost 1 down

Andy Cottle & Spencer Sinden won 3&1

Kelvin Green & Martin Cashnella lost 3&2

Now with all games completed Bath 1st team are division 3 champions and promoted into the second division! Congratulations and very well played by all who have contributed this season.

Our Lady Captain, Alison Rushgrove, is also very proud and delighted to tell you that last Friday Bath GC Ladies – Veronica Creed, Paula McLaurin, Michelle Green, Linda Hill, Stephanie Anderson, Jill Carter and Jo Joliffe – resoundingly beat Lansdown GC Ladies 6:1 to go through to the final of the Somerset Ladies County Golf Association interclub knock-out, the Rogers Cup.

They were supported by Mags Ashman-Marr, Pip Donnithorne, Stephanie Moorfoot and Anita Bye who all acted as caddies for the match. There was a tremendous amount of team spirit and camaraderie and we felt instinctively that it was going to be our day. That does not mean it was easy! There was a fearsome wind and the conditions were tough. The girls had to play some great golf and remain focused and determined until the game was won. Our opposition were going for a hat-trick of Rogers Cup wins so certainly did not want Bath Ladies to get in their way! But get in their way we did – you can see from the photograph just how pleased we were.

Bath Ladies will face Mendip Spring GC Ladies in the final which will be played at Farrington Golf Club on Sunday 4th September.

Bath Golf Club Ladies beat Mendip Spring Golf Club Ladies at Farrington Park in a very tight and exciting final to win the prestigious Rogers Cup. The Rogers Cup is the Somerset County inter-club knock out competition played over the summer months. This year Bath went through the rounds beating Burnham & Berrow GC, Clevedon GC and Lansdown GC to reach the final. It was a Bath Golf Club member, Mrs Rogers, who originally bequeathed the Cup and Bath first won it in 1930. 2016 sees the Cup coming home for the eighth time in its history.
