Christine and Charlotte Griffith from Walton Heath claimed their second Mothers and Daughters’ title in six years with a two-shot victory at Royal Mid-Surrey Golf Club in south-west London last month.
Held at the Richmond venue for the last 56-years, the 27-hole medal foursomes event 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.
Runners-up in the event last year, Charlotte, 24, playing off a 3-handicap and her mother Christine off 5 produced a strong showing over the closing holes on the historic Pam Barton Course to secure victory over a field of 44 other parings that took part.
“The course played very long this year and it was a question of Charlotte carrying me over the latter stages,” said Christine, who was recovering from a serious cancer operation when the pair last won the event in 2012.
"We didn’t expect to win after coming off the last, but now we’re looking forward to next year which will be our tenth involvement in the event".
“I’d like to congratulate Christine and Charlotte on another outstanding victory and a big ‘thank you’ to all the parings that travelled from across the country to take part in this historic event for women’s golf,” said event organiser Sheila Stirling. “We had a great turn out this year and hope for a similar field of contenders in 2019.”
Royal Mid-Surrey boasts the largest ladies section in England, with more than 320 members. It’s also one of the few clubs with a resident female professional.
