This was the first stand alone U12's match. The teams of 16 boys from Surrey is presented a stern test by taking on the best 8 from Sussex and the best 8 from Hampshire.
This match came with the additional challenge of fielding a team with 6 of the first 7 Surrey U12's away in Scotland at the US Kids. One challenge presents one opportunity for others with Surrey giving debuts to 7 of the 16.
The match was an away fixture at Goodwood Golf Club on the Park Course. So with 7 new boys and a course no one had played before, kit was distributed, team talks were given and the match was underway.
Fears or concerns were soon dispelled with birdies flying in everywhere and golf skills demonstrated throughout the field. The match format was 4 ball better ball, with a point for the front nine, a point for the back nine and two points for the overall match.
Surrey ran out winners 26-6. Informal dining was welcomed, eaten and the boys began their trips home.
Result 26-6 win for Surrey
A final note of thanks to Dean Taylor who ran the day for Surrey
