The Senior Ladies 9 Hole Winter League is a pairs competition starting in October and finishing in March.

The competition’s climax is the final played on Friday 12th April in chilly but dry Spring conditions between Jude McManus & Linda Houston and Sharon Easton Pollock & Carolyn Fox. We were pleased that the final was played after weeks of rain but thankfully after a dry sunny day the course was fine. Though a bit wet in places it was in fairly good condition with some speedy greens!

Sharon and Carolyn got off to a flying start and won the first two holes but Jude and Linda fought back and won the 3rd and 4th.  The next three holes were closely fought with all being halved in pars. All the players played some great golf and were level going down the 8th where Linda, Sharon & Carolyn had a shot. With a tricky temporary green Linda managed to negotiate the slope and bumps and won the hole with a  five, Jude & Linda went into the 9th being 1 up. All to play for on the 9th with a putting battle between Jude and Carolyn with both scoring a 5 and halving the hole This gave Jude & Linda a 1up win.

Well done to all four players for reaching the final and making it a very enjoyable competition for me as the referee with very few decisions to make!

Result. Jude McManus & Linda Houston Won (1up) against Sharon Easton Pollock & Carolyn Fox
