Sandra Holman, 2nd Team Manager
Sandra is excited about her new role within the SCLGA. She’s held most posts on committee and brings with her a wealth of experience having been most recently County Captain from 2015-2017, and past Captain until 2018.
The 2nd Team is in a strong position to carry on with it’s winning ways after the excellent stewardship of Tessa Stockwell. Sandra derives huge enjoyment from the Junior section of the County and is keen to include as many up and coming youngsters in the squad. As she says, “The Juniors are the future of the County and 2nd Team match practice is the best place for them to acquire etiquette, and earn their place in the 1st Team”.
Players with handicaps of 5-10 will be most welcome to email me here if they think they’d be suitable for the 2nd Team.
What is the Stovold Trophy?
Pat Stovold is a past Captain and past President of Surrey County Ladies Golf Association. Her support of the seniors, ladies and development of juniors has been crucial to the success of Surrey County Golf. As a means of encouraging talented, young golfers in Surrey to County 1st Team standard, Pat introduced the Stovold Trophy to the South Region golfing calendar in 1997. Sussex also sees the 2nd Team as the best place to introduce juniors to the team and it is expected that there will be at least 1 junior in the games. The 6 a-side matches are played against Hampshire, Kent, Middlesex and Surrey with foursomes in the morning and singles after lunch.
