The Fathers & Daughters Open Foursomes
Saturday 1st September 2018

The Fathers & Daughters Foursomes competition was launched in September 2011 to fill a gap in the market.
Barbara Round,  a former secretary of the ladies’ section at Tadmarton, has played on a number of occasions in the national Mothers & Daughters championship with her daughter Sam, the former Oxfordshire Ladies’ champion. She felt there was nothing in particular for dads and their daughters so suggested a new competition to be held at Tadmarton.
The 27-hole foursomes competition has proved a great success attracting players from all across the country with handicaps ranging from +3 to 36. Some of our regular pairs travel from as far as Lancashire and West Sussex!
