  • Soaring to success - all girls team wins Derbyshire County Championship

    Girl Power secured a fabulous first when our CGC quintet became the only all-girl team to win the Derbyshire County Junior Championship.

    Olivia Barker-Sabido, Lucia Maturi, Olivia Streets, Gabby Auld and Eva Myers claimed a fantastic victory in the handicap final against Breadsall Priory A team at Kedleston Park Golf Club on Sunday.

    The five friends have grown up playing the game together and hold handicap indexes ranging from 4.9 to 15.8.

    We’ve great strength in depth in our junior section and this year organiser John Barker decided to send the girls into the competition on their own rather than entering two mixed teams as in previous years.

    And the departure from the norm paid off handsomely when 14-year-old Gabby showed nerves of steel to hole a 12-foot putt on the last green to secure victory over a very strong Breadsall five.

    It was a fitting end to a thrilling fightback with Chesterfield having trailed in three of the four matches during their early stages.

    Gabby’s victory added to a win for Lucia and a half for Club Junior Captain Olivia Streets…. and the trophy was ours!

    The final triumph followed a quarter final win against Burton and a semi-final victory over Breadsall Priory’s B team.

    Steve Myers, who has done an outstanding job managing the team, said: “They are great golfers but also great friends and it’s been a pleasure to watch them having so much fun.

    “I’m so proud of not only the way they have played, but also how they have conducted themselves throughout the competition especially as they were a lot younger than the majority of the other teams.

    “The challenge of playing older more experienced golfers and ‘beating the boys’ just never daunted them at all.”

  • Scratch team end perfect season on a high

    Congratulations to our Derbyshire Scratch League team who ended the season with a perfect winning record following last night’s victory over Breadsall Priory.

    Managed by John Barker and skippered by Jamie Boler the side needed to beat Breadsall Priory for a 100% record of wins after already securing the Division Three league title in their first season back in competition.

    Wins for Lucas Davis (6&4), John Ward (6&4), Stephen Warne (4&2) and Ben Dawes (WO), were added to by a halved match for Leigh Brusby to secure a resounding 9-1 success.

    It was great to see a number of golf club members on the course supporting the players last night.

    We look forward to next season in Division Two.
