Lincolnshire Ladies Past Captains - Thursday 25th July
On the warmest day of the year so far, 96 ladies representing hundreds of years of Lincolnshire Past Captains from clubs all over Lincolnshire, attended the annual event to play for the individual trophy and team shield.
Despite cakes and drinks at the half way house, and additional water provided around the course, some of the ladies found the temperatures in excess of 35 degrees too much and had to retire. The scores favoured the ladies who played early and had local knowledge.
