The Ladies Club Championships were played on Saturday 11th June with some ladies participating in the 36 Hole Scratch Competition and a further eight other ladies joining in the afternoon Nett competition which were both medal format.
The weather, as always for the Ladies Club Championships, was variable with Un forecast rain which caught a lot of us out in shorts. However, this was short-lived and a lot of the competition was played in lovely sunshine. Certainly, an improvement in past years!
The first three ladies, Kerri Coulter, Anne Hollman-Bunn and Laura Lawrence played at 8:36 with varying success and returned to the Clubhouse to join the other ladies for lunch as heroes. Unfortunately, a recurring injury meant that Laura had to withdraw from the afternoon competition. Many thanks to the Bar Staff for looking after us so well and ensuring that the food was served on time.
The Nett competition started at 13:24 in high handicap order with Keely Tattersfield and Anne Wakelam leading the field followed by Carolyn Fox, Jude McManus, Linda Houston, Angela Smith, Pauline Cooke, Kate Thompson, Kerri Coulter, Laura Lawrence and Anne Hollman-Bunn. All were seen off the first tee by Club Chairman John Kelly.
Everyone thought the course was in immaculate condition and our thanks go to Mark Cunningham and his team for presenting the course so well as always.
I am pleased to announce that the Ladies Club Champion 2022 is Anne Hollman-Bunn with scores of 84 and 86 and runner-up Kerri Coulter with scores of 90 and 99. Congratulations to both on the result and playing 36 holes in one day! Laura Lawrence, although injured, completed the course with 98.
The Ladies Nett Champion 2022 is Linda Houston with a score of 66 and the Ladies Net Championship runner-up on countback BB9 with 69 is Pauline Cooke. Congratulations to you both on an excellent round.
