With the ground still saturated, the course continues to play long and the scores largely reflected this. Coming out on top this week were Claire Bottom, Alison Groom and Ann Hincks who accumulated a very creditable 60 points in the conditions. Runners up with 58 points were Kate Hammond, Rachel Miller and Margaret Norris.
Congratulations to Jane Ackling, Pat Haslam and Sue Overton who won this week's Texas Scramble with a creditable net 61.2, particularly considering the course conditions. The largely unchanging group of ladies who continue to defy the elements week on week are to be applauded - well done to all who played.
Out of the sun the winds were icy, making the round a test of endurance above all else. Arguably, the scores reflected this with winners Kate Hammond, Pat Haslam, Carol Smalley and Kerry Variava accumulating 65 points (+1 over 16 holes). In second with 63 points were Julie Bowler, Alison Groom, Rachel Miller and Julie Wells with 63 and finally in third, Jane Ackling, Sylvia Armson, Jayne Harris and Angela Lane secured 60 points. All prizes will be presented at the Annual Dinner on the 19th December. Well done ladies!!
