The Senior Ladies 9 Hole Winter League is a pairs match play competition for Ladies over 55, played over 9 holes with 90% handicap allowance starting in October.
The climax of the competition is the final which was played on Monday 20th March 2023 in relatively good weather conditions between Debbie Degge and Helena Kilgariff versus Linda Houston and Jude McManus.
Jude and Linda went two up after the first two holes but a magnificent birdie by Debbie on the 3rd pulled it back to one up. It was nip and tuck with Debbie and Helena winning the 6th and 7th. So, it was all square going into the 8th.
Jude and Linda won the 8th so we were looking at possibly extending the match if Debbie and Helena could win the 9th. Helena, unfortunately, had a put that lipped out on the 9th so the match was secured by Jude and Linda winning by one shot.
Well done to Jude, Linda, Debbie and Helena for reaching the final and making it a very competitive match.
Grateful thanks to John Kelly for refereeing the final.
