County President's Day 2019

Presidents 2019aCounty President’s Day 2019 was played at Wollaton Park Golf Club on Monday 7 October, to raise funds for the NCLGA County Teams. The weather forecast was horrendous but fortunately it did not turn out as predicted. The drizzle dried up and most competitors were able to play without getting wet. Sadly, the rain did come back later for the players near the end of the field. The format was a four-ball Stableford Am Am with 2 scores to count, 90% handicap. There were prizes for nearest the pin on all five short holes, a Putting Competition over 6 holes, a prize draw for free four balls, and a raffle. At the half-way house the players enjoyed a little break to have a drink and eat delicious cakes. After play, a buffet meal and sweet were enjoyed in the dining-room.

The prize-winners were:
First Place: Jean Stones, Zandra Alexander, Pam Orton, and Jane Morton from Coxmoor Golf Club with 83 points winning on the back nine with 47 points.
Second Place: Caroline Hart, Lily Hurley, Cheryl Slade, and Jane Burgin from Wollaton Park Golf Club with 83 points with a back nine of 42 points.
