As part of the Nevill Centenary celebrations, the club hosted an exhibition match with Dame Laura Davies, Charley Hull, Trish Johnson and Becky Brewerton. The Solheim Cup players are photographed with Jo Hamer, Lady Captain and Club Captain, John Oliver. With 23 Solheim Cup appearances between them, the four European Tour stars helped Nevill GC celebrate their Centenary in style. There was a great crowd watching as they played a 9 hole better ball match off the men’s competition tees with both teams finishing 3 under par. As a decider, they then played a ‘sudden death’ bunker shot play-off at the 18th. Trish Johnson put her ball to just 18 inches resulting in Trish and Dame Laura triumphing over teenage sensation Charley Hull and Becky Brewerton.
It was a brilliant day, lots of banter, lots of fun and amazing golf, no doubt one of the highlights of their Centenary Year!
