Mothers and Daughters Foursomes Preview
Mothers and Daughters partnerships from all over England will congregate at Royal Mid Surrey Golf Club, in Richmond, on Saturday, April 18 to contest a unique foursomes event in the amateur golfing calendar.
Since 1932 mothers and daughters have been getting together to do battle at this historic competition, originally played at Ranelagh by the Veteran Ladies Golfing Association, it  moved to Royal Mid Surrey in 1962 when the organisers decided it should become open.
Since then it has attracted the crème of the amateur game, with some legendary players competing with their mothers or daughters, including Pam Barton, Angela Uzielli, Vivien Saunders, Jill Thornhill, Linda Bayman, Liz Boatman, Angela Bonallack and current England international, Alex Peters, to name but a few!
Last year, victory last year saw youngest competitor ever to win the trophy, 13-year- old Amelia Williamson with her mother Tracey from Norfolk.  She followed in the footsteps of a couple of 14-year-olds, England international Alex Peters and Charlotte Barrow of Hampshire.
 This year Tracey and Amelia will be back to defend their title but they will have stern competition from 2013 winners Glenna and Harriet Beasley from Woburn, 6 and 5 handicaps respectively, who were unable to play.  

The Beasleys, daughter and granddaughter of Sir Michael Bonallack, come from a rich golfing heritage and Glenna had already lifted the mothers and daughters trophy with her mother Lady Angela Bonallack in 1979 and 2000
