After the Golf competition, the opportunity was taken to celebrate the 90th birthday of one of our senior Ladies. Those that stayed afterwards were treated to a slice of a specially made birthday cake and a glass of wine (all at an acceptable ‘social distance’ of course).
Ladies Club Championship
The most prestigious competition in the Ladies calendar is the Ladies Club Championship and this was played over the weekend of the 8th and 9th August with a round of golf on both days. Once again, we were blessed with good weather.
Twenty-four ladies took part and the current Club Champion, Anna Clark, retained the title with a gross score of 157 for the two rounds. The nett Trophy was won by Jo Pearson. This is a great achievement by both players and the congratulations of the Ladies Section are well deserved.
