Two West Norfolk golfers are among the 10 qualifiers of the England Golf Grand Medal Final to find the country’s champion woman medal player.

Essex golfer Nicky George, of Theydon Bois Golf Club, won the East Region final at Thetford Golf Club, Norfolk, with a net score of 69, five-under par.

The other players who won places in the Grand Medal Final, include: Alyson Wise of King’s Lynn GC and Tiffany Mills of Ryston Park GC.

The regional final was contested by players from across England Golf’s East region which covers Bedfordshire, Cambs & Hunts, Essex, Hertfordshire, Norfolk and Suffolk.

All the regional finalists had returned the best four scores at their club in the England Golf Medals during 2015. The successful 10 players will meet qualifiers from five other regional finals at the Grand Medal Final at Frilford Heath in Oxfordshire on Thursday, August 13.

The Grand Final will be a feature of Golf Week, staged by England Golf to create a national grand finale for a host of handicap and team championships.
