There was an impressive turnout of ladies as Louth Golf Club staged a Valentine’s Day competition last week.

A close scrap developed for the other placings with just one point separating the next four positions.

Elaine Blyth took second place on countback with 30 points from third-placed Maureen Barnes who also needed countback to secure third place from Linda West. Annette Taylor completed the top five with 29 points.

Pam Shepherd was nearest-the-pin-in-three on the third hole, and Annette Taylor won the longest putt prize on the 18th.
