Pam Clare and Joan Young travelled to Peterborough Milton Golf Club to take part in the Area Final of the R&A Coronation Foursomes on Saturday.


Competition was tough with 79 teams taking part and the format of playing alternate shots adding to the difficulty.

The Boston pair made a great start to the competition scoring 4pts on the 1st hole and continued to build on this throughout the front nine finishing on par with 18 points.

On the back 9 they continued to play well but some bunker trouble on a couple of holes affected their score and they finished with 13 points to record a very creditable score of 31 points.
