A team of golfers from Abbey Hill Golf Club are celebrating after getting their hands on the Whiteweebs Golf Jubilee Shield.

Lizanne Muller, Jackie Boon, Rachael Freer and Team Captain Josie Patrick battled through the Home Counties East Region, with victories against Trent Park, Royal Epping and Batchwood Hall B along the way, as well as success over Rose Hill in the national semi-final.

Hosted by the National Association of Public and Proprietary Golf Clubs and Courses, the Whitewebbs Golden Jubilee Shield pits ladies teams of four from all over the country against each other in a straight knock-out style format.

Led by Lizanne who had the highest overall individual score of 37 points, the Abbey Hill team were able to come out on top against fellow finalists Easthampstead C by a commanding margin of 23 points to take the title.

Andrew Scholey, General Manager at Abbey Hill, said: “We’re all so proud of what Lizanne, Jackie, Rachael and Josie have achieved.

“Abbey Hill hasn’t won the Jubilee Shield since 1990, so to win this prestigious competition once again shows just how strong the ladies section is here at the moment.”
