The Petersfield Challenge Cup was played at Alton Golf Club recently.

Alton’s golf course was at its spring best, and Alton captain Sally Matthews ably led her team to victory over Petersfield and Hartley Wintney golf clubs.

But even after countback there was nothing to split her team from the Romsey entry, so for the first time in the 30-year history of this team event the trophy was shared.

The event is mixed greensomes, and Petersfield’s lady captain Heidi Oliver, playing with Gary Harfield, took the individual honours with 42 stableford points.
