Ping and a HOLE in ONE
The ladies played their first Ping 4BBB on Tuesday in pretty wet conditions. 10 teams entered with Lady Captain, Yvonne and Gwyn winning with 40 points.
The top 50 stableford scores in England go through to the Grand Final and the next best 50 scores go through to the Plate Final. Both of these will be held at Gainsborough Golf Club on the 4th and 5th of September so good luck to Yvonne and Gwyn.
To make it an even more special day Liz Gardner scored a HOLE in ONE on the sixth hole during the competition.
Well done Liz, who later treated all the ladies to a glass if fizz in celebration.

Captain's Prize to the Ladies
A grey day was brightened considerably by the great humour of the Ladies playing for the Captain's Prize on Tuesday.
Olwen Davies deservedly won the nearest the pin on the 6th, only a couple of feet from the pin.
Pam Butler won the 9-hole Stableford that was played on the same day.
In 3rd place was Sue Kendrick on a card play-off with 94-19=75. Second was the Lady President, Valerie Hornsby, with the best gross of the day, 90-19=71.
However, the overall winner was Helen Thomson with a 96-27=69. It was particularly impressive as Helen only received her first handicap earlier this year and is rapidly improving. Many congratulations to Helen.
The Captain would like to thank all the Ladies who took part for making it a great day!

OLwen and Liz 's great run in the above competition came to an end on Thursday.
They had been successful by getting through into the 5th round but were finally beaten by two very steady players from Lytham.
Well done to both of you for getting so far in the competition.
