Our Solheim Cup event took place on Tuesday 10th April and Thursday 12th April. The competition was organised in two rounds based on the Solheim Cup Matchplay event. Twenty four ladies formed the two teams: Team USA and Team Europe. For the third consecutive year Team USA won with 12 points to Europe's 6. On the final day everyone sat down to lunch together which was followed by tea and cakes iced with the USA and Europe flags. There was also a raffle which raised £77.50 for the club charities Dorothy House and Frome Fair. Thanks go to all those who helped organise the event, but special thanks go to our Club Captain Neil McGuiness, who kindly gifted bottles of wine for us to share.

Twenty two ladies formed the two teams and played a 9-hole stableford. this was followed by lunch where additional lady members joined in, making it a very enjoyable day for us all. The individual winners were:
1st Pat Jones (16 pts) 2nd Audrey Holland (15 pts ocb) 3rd Kate Chadwick (15 pts)
For the second consecutive year, the trophy went to the Captain's side with a total of 126 pts to the Vice Captain's 114 pts.
