Eighteen holes will be played each day beginning at 8 a.m. Friday and Saturday and 7:30 a.m. Sunday at the par-72, 6,230-yard course. After her recent first top 20 finish in just three starts, Roseanne will be hoping to do well. Her Mum Alison and sister and fellow County squad member Annabel are visiting at the moment so she will have lots of support.
Good luck Roseanne!

County squad member Alexandra Bushby (Strathmore) has been selected to represent her old school, Glenalmond, in the prestigious Halford Hewitt tournament played on the Royal Cinque Ports Golf Club in Kent. The Halford Hewitt has been described by the golf writer Nick Tremayne as 'the greatest of all truly amateur tournaments'. Founded in 1924 it is competed for today by the old boys and girls of 64 English and Scottish public schools which each field five foursomes pairs, making 640 competitors in all. The sheer size of the "field" - plus the hundreds of supporters who routinely turn up - is part of what makes the "Hewitt" a unique sporting event. The tournament has a rich history, frequently pits average golfers against famous internationals, and produces moments of golfing pressure simply not experienced by amateur players elsewhere. Alex believes she is the only girl taking part in this year's competition which takes place from 29th March to 1st April - everyone at P & K wishes Alex the very best of luck!
