The challenge of the lush grass, changeable weather and a black and white marker post all added to the excitement of the competition today, which was hotly contested by a smiley group of ladies (miserable faces were threatened with a couple of extra penalty shots on their score.....). Honours went again to Mo Monk, in a rich seam of form, who won with a net 76 on count back from Angela Atkinson, who was delighted to be in the prizes at an Alderley major for the first time since joining. Third prize went to Liz McGuire who with a net 77, squeezed in front of Karen Pennington and Tracy Smith on a card play off. Julie Ricketts won the nearest the pins on the 4th/13th with Tracy Smith getting closest on the 6th/13th. Despite offering two goes to get on those holes a good proportion of the ladies were honest enough to admit that the green appeared rather elusive! Winner of the nine hole stableford competition was Helen Edwards who played nine with a dodgy hand (no more orange juice for you!!!) Thanks to Julie Ricketts and Sue Kendrick for organising the competition and for all the nice cards and good wishes I received from everyone.
