Annabell Fuller has had two quite incredible weeks in her career, firstly she won the English Amateur Strokeplay championship at Burnham and Berrow


Not content enough with that title, she went on and took part in the British Amateur Championships at West Lancs Golf Club. She performed heroically once again and finished runner-up.  Please click on the following to read a full report of the event.

Roehampton Club was also represented by Issy Simpson and Sammy Fuller in both events. Both played admirably and gave their very best. Issy qualified as joint leader after the medal rounds of the British Amateur, just getting pipped, losing 1 down in the first round of the matchplay to defending champion Emily Toy.

Sammy Fuller finished runner up in the second Rose Series event played at Moor Park. Many of you will have read about the Justin Rose Ladies’ Series, not least because of the fire that ultimately put paid to the final of the event being played at Wentworth. This has been a great series to rise the profile and support Ladies’ golf.

What an amazing group of golfers representing Roehampton Club. Wishing you all the best year when you all return to university in the USA.

The AIG Women’s British Open Championship from Royal Troon had a wonderfully exciting final day with a remarkably composed performance from Sophie Popov from Germany ranked outside the top 300 going on to win by 2 shots at 7 under par.

More down to earth news now!

The 4BBB 9 hole knock out is into its concluding stages having reached the quarter finals with Val Patten and Sue Latham, Susan Major and Fiona Hockless, Jane Peel and Cathy Staveley, Gill Evamy and Annette Timms, eft standing. I look forward to the results. The eclectic competition is also nearing its completion date so put in those last-minute cards.

A few of us had an enjoyable introduction to Croquet organised by Caroline Dewar If anyone else is interested, please contact her as several golfing ladies who also play croquet are keen to encourage participation in a social, fun and competitive game.
