Club hosts prestigious national championship


Lindrick hosted England’s top event in ladies’ golf — the English Women’s Amateur Championship.

It was won by one of the youngest winners in its history.

A total of 120 of the country’s best women golfers, all with handicaps of five or less, competed on Lindrick’s newly redesigned course

They included those who were on duty with England when they won the European Championships the previous week.

Following the first two days of play, the top 40 contested two rounds and 15-year-old Lily May Humphries, from Stoke by Nayland, won by one shot.

She led on all three days of the championship and finished one over par with 289.

Lindrick was well represented.

Fourteen-year-old Mia Eales Smith narrowly missed the cut while Nicola Slater, 17, was 19th with a 307 score.
