RAF Men And Army Women Win Inter Services Golf Titles

Both teams retained the championships they won in 2019 – the last time the competition was held.

The RAF men's and Army women's teams have retained their Inter Services golf titles at the first championships in two years.

The action took place at Saunton Golf Club in Devon.

It was a bad week for the Navy who were beaten by their rivals in every event.

That meant a final day shootout between the RAF and the Army – with the Air Force winning the men's tournament but losing in the women's event.

Speaking about his team's victory, RAF men's team captain, Sergeant Cameron Kinvig, said: "Everyone's played really well.

"All matches have been really, really tight which is good to see.

"It shows the quality of service sport and obviously, [we're] ecstatic to get across the line this year."

For the Army women, it was a great opportunity to be back on the course and raising the profile of the service sport.

"After COVID-19, we've not been able to play for quite a while," said team captain Staff Sergeant Zoe Burrell-Knipe.

"It's just nice to be back on the golf course to start with.

"It's a great advertisement for ladies' golf, that there is no one runaway team. It was close throughout for everybody."

The championship returns to Enville in the West Midlands next year.
