The last game of the year was played by the Ladies’ section today. A fun 9 hole Christmas Bring and Win (Drawn) Competition in which 36 ladies took part.
Some of the ladies dressed in festive sparkle brought a smile and a sharp reminder that it’s only a week to go to the big day!
The weather held for us, quite mild and not too wet underfoot. Going off both the front and back nine, it enabled everyone to finish within a short period.
In first place on the front nine and winning on countback was Theresa Williamson and Sarah Brook with 16 pts, followed in second, with the same number of points by their playing partners Chris Kernohan and Diane Allen.
On the back nine top spot was taken by Liz Barrett and Jenny Steele with 16pts closely followed by Carol Hartley and Vikki Kindle with 14 pts.
Margaret May presented a prize to the overall winners of the competition (on countback), Theresa May and Sarah Brook.
A hot cup of tea and mince pies followed after which the ladies chose their “Secret Santa” gifts.
Congratulations Ladies, have a fantastic Christmas and New Year wishing all our shots to be good ones!!
