Sunshine and showers greeted the ladies who played in the Stableford competition for the Lady Captain’s Rosebowl at Kenwick Park Golf Club.

Congratulations are due to 22-year-old Cheryl Gilliatt, who played well to score 38 points to win the trophy.

She finished ahead of Andrea Smggasgale (9), who totted up 34 points and Pam Westhorp (20), who scored 32.

Jane Briggs (22) won the bronze division, scoring 32 ahead of Pam Hayward (22) with 27 and Sue Burkitt (28) who scored 26.

In the Copper Division, a count back on 27 points declared Christine Goldsbrough (32) first, ahead of runner-up Sue Letby. Wendy Beaumont won the prize for the longest drive at the sixth hole and Ann Walker was nearest the pin at the 12fth hole.

On Sunday, teams of four played in the mixed competition, with two scores to count at each hole and on two pre-selected holes, the team doubled up their scores.

The formidable team of John Rysdale, Wendy Beaumont, Spencer and Donna Wood scored a massive 99 points to win. Ron Irwin, Val Pattinson, Sean Howsam and Nathan Price were the runners-up with 97. Matt Powell, Julie Harvey, Mike and Lesley Burton came third with 96. Graham Jacklin, Karl Koslow, Bob and Jane Briggs took the fourth prize with 93.

Ron Irwin won the men’s prize for nearest the pin at the eighth hole and Carol James was nearest for the ladies at the second. Freda Cooper was the only person to score a two and won two dozen balls for her birdie. The Long Putt competition raised over £100 for the Lady Captain’s charity and was won by Karl Koslow.

Members have thanked Lady Captain Penny, her husband John and team of helpers at the halfway house, who provided refreshments for all the golfers who took part over the weekend.

Those ladies with the energy left played an 18-hole medal on the following Tuesday.

Sue Burkitt won with 104 - 28 = 76. A count back on 77 gave second place to Julia Labbett with 94 - 17 = 77 ahead of Sue Sykes 90 - 13 = 77.
