Whilst our ladies’ section is not very large, we do have a good number of hardy and skilful players not afraid to battle with the elements, writes Dave Bruce.
Six such players went out last Wednesday to show that they were not going to be beaten. Sadly, despite their best and heroic efforts, four had to give up after varying holes for the warmth of the 19th hole and the kiss of life from the steward!
However, being natural born leaders, and not being aware of what was going on behind them, ladies’ captain Caroline Bond and Helen Kenworthy, who went out first, bravely getting to grips with the very challenging conditions, did manage to finish the 18-hole stableford competition. Caroline was the overall winner, but both were champions for completing their round.
Also on Wednesday, Sandra Walker and Anne Jarvis fought the first round of The Daily Mail Foursomes against a strong pair from Lyme Regis.
The meeting should have been held at Lyme Regis, but was changed to Axe Cliff because of the weather.
It proved to be a very close contest with Sandra and Anne eventually winning on the 18th hole.
Well done to all four ladies for battling the very unkind elements.
