Autumn Meeting 2018

The County Autumn Meeting was held at Norwood Park Golf Club on Monday 3rd September, with 35 ladies taking part. One noteable absentee was our President, Maureen Clarke, who unfortunately had a puncture on route and was unable to play. It was a lovely sunny morning to begin the day, with hardly any wind, the course was in good condition, particularly the greens, where we were soon to find out the ground staff had set some very testing pin positions, making things difficult for some of us! Despite this there was still some excellent golf played by the ladies.

Congratulations to the winner of the Challenge Bowl Scratch Trophy, Di Payne with a gross 82 and to the winner of the Challenge Bowl Handicap Trophy, Ellen Sanderson, playing in her first County event, with nett 73 on countback. In second place was Jan Hooley, followed by Gillian Stump in third again on countback. Unfortunately Eithne Williams, also with a nett 73 on countback, missing out on the prizes in fourth place. Charlie Hall with a nett 76, was the Division 2 winner. The home team from Norwood Park were the winners of the Jubilee Shield team trophy with a total of 295.

Full details of today’s winners and the winners of the aggregate competions are listed below. Congratulations to all of the Trophy and Prize winners, Trophies will be presented at our AGM at Beeston Fields Golf Club on Monday 19th November.

Thanks to Julia Warrener and Sue Robinson, who also stepped in as our Starter for this competition, for dealing with the entries and results for the day, also for all their help throughout the season. Thanks to everyone that has entered our competitions this year and even if you have been unsuccessful, I hope you have enjoyed the golf and the company and we look forward to seeing everyone again next season. Your support is much appreciated.

Finally many thanks to all at Norwood Park Golf Club for hosting the event this year and for their support of NCLGA.
