In May, Rhos-on-Sea Golf Club started their journey in the British Mixed Team Knockout Chamionships. The team, consisting of 5 couples, played in a greensome format. First off was an away fixture against Mold GC. A win there led to a home match against Vale Royal GC. Getting into our stride, we visited Portal GC which proved a challenge, but still came away with a win. The fourth round was a home match against Bakewell GC. This win secured our place in the regional finals which was against Belton Park GC at home. Three games of this hard fought match saw 3 teams going to extra holes, but the victory was ours, ensuring a place in the British Finals.

Rhos-on-Sea travelled to The Oxforshire Golf Club on 27th September to do battle against the other three regional winners. Our semi final was against Brickenden Golf Club and here we took our first loss, 3-2. We  weren’t quite finished, as on the second day there was a play off for 3rd and 4th position against Scarborough GC. One pair had to go to the 20th hole to give us a 3-2 win and 3rd place. Brickeden GC went on to beat Brampton Park GC 3-2, securing victory.
