A bright and beautiful day on Wednesday 10th July saw 39 pairs of Ladies take to the course in our Annual Ladies Open. The format was a 4BBB Stableford Competition with Ladies allowed 3/4 of their Handicaps. We were delighted to welcome Ladies from Clubs in Derbyshire, Cheshire and Staffordshire. The Course is in great condition and it was a pleasure to hear the positive comments from our visitors. Our own Ladies have at times struggled to get scores this season. Would our visitors fair any better? Well yes, they certainly did.
The winners with an excellent score of 42 pts were Christine Silvester and Elaine Smith from Izaak Walton GC. Very well played Ladies.
2nd were Pauline Roberts and Sandra Williams from Tytherington GC with a great score of 41pts.
3rd were Alison Smith and Jenny Smale from Whittington Heath GC with 40pts.
4th were Liz Dunkerly and Rosemary Mason from Prestbury GC with 38pts.
5th were Verity Gilbert and Judy Read from Bramhall Park GC with 37pts on a count-back.
6th were Sheila Parkin and Waveney Crosson from Alfreton GC again with 37pts and also on a count-back.
