The annual Mothers & Daughters’ Open Foursomes returns to Royal Mid-Surrey this April with the tournament aiming for a record level of entries.
Held at the Richmond venue for the last 56 years, the annual Mothers & Daughters’ Open Foursomes this April is open to female pairings from across the UK and remains one of the country’s longest-running events for lady golfers, having been first played in 1932.
The 27-hole medal event is played on Royal Mid-Surrey’s historic 5,446 yard, par-71 Pam Barton Course, named after the legendary British and US Amateur champion and club member who won the same title with her mother in 1936.
It will be the 87th staging of an event that has seen several multiple winners, including Tracey and Amelia Williamson from Royal Cromer Golf Club who claimed their fourth successive Mothers and Daughters’ title last year with a three-shot victory in south-west London.
“It’s a pity we can’t return to defend the title due to another commitment before Amelia goes off to take up a four-year golf scholarship at Florida State University,” said Tracey.
“We loved playing in the event. It’s so much fun and a really enjoyable day where you meet lots of other people and spend the whole day together playing without any real pressure. So often we go to events where the talented girls play, but the mothers only watch them.”
