Ladies’ Section - The ground was definitely crisp and white though not necessarily even on Wednesday for the Ladies NQ Stableford competition.

But, in spite of temporary greens, several ladies turned in very respectable scores.Tricia Swindell continued her winning streak and had a well earned win in the Silver Division with 37 points, followed closely by Mona Carter who also mastered the unusually frosty conditions and came in second with 36 points.

In Bronze 1 Division, Catherine Doherty came out tops with 33 points, while Lesley Oxenham was second with 32 points (c/b). Bronze 2 Division winner was Susan Hyde with 28 points, while second and third places were decided on c/b with Di Wall pipping Maureen Tollemarche to the post, both on 27 points.
