2017 Inter-County Foursomes

 Well done to the Norfolk County Golf Team

Ten of the best ( Simon Clarke, Iain Yule, Gile Evans, Toby Briggs, Josh Weeds, Warren Bates, Tom Beasley, Richard Wilson, Thomas Nudd, Dylan Green ) Captained by County Captain Kevin Webb ) took on the might of eight other Counties (Essex, Leicestershire & Rutland, Lincolnshire, Berks/Bucks & Oxfordshire, Northamptonshire, Suffolk, Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire) in this annual 72 hole foursomes matchplay event held at Seacroft GC on  the east coast of Lincolnshire. 

Counties traditionally bring along their very best available players with teams typically totalling a combined handicap of only 2 or 3 so the contest is fierce. Our team compared favourably with this and so the battle was joined.

Day one was a very windy, very wet 36 holes of triangular foursomes matchplay. Our morning round started  well with plenty of points in the bag. The afternoon, tainted by some atrocious weather conditions saw us hanging on for the most part hoping for better things to come. 

Day two got off to a sunny, breezy start with the team all pulling together and leaving us well up the leader board. The afternoon was a tense affair with all counties clearly saving their best efforts to the last with some wonderful golf being played by everyone. Our team took to the challenge thriving on the cut and thrust of the competition. 

Finally the tournament was over, Essex were crowned Champions with Leicestershire & Rutland taking second spot and Norfolk third.  A superb effort from our team seeing off the other competitors and making the County proud.

A fantastic weekend showcasing the ability of the golfers within this County, we look forward to a successful season ahead.
