Wow, what a week for the ladies teams. 3 consecutive wins commencing with-
Thursday, Friendly match,
Alderley vs Ringway at home. Well, what happened to the weather, blue skies and sunshine. Gone are the winter boots, coats and woolly jumpers and out come the summer shoes and polo shirts..
Two previous days of sunshine had firmed up the course and the greens were running faster.
With the match complete the players came in for sandwiches and delicious home made cakes following which Alderley were declared 2/1 winners
Everybody agreed it had been a lovely day and Ringway are looking forward to the return match.
Friday, 9 Hole League
Away at Ashton on Mersey.
It was a 5.30 start and the temperature had certainly dropped. Ashton is a well kept course with some tricky holes and the river Mersey running alongsde the course.
Each team comprised 3 pairs if ladies, but with Ashton having few lady members, my partner and I found ourselves up against a pair with one player with a handicap of 4. My initial thought was that someone had missed off a number before the 4, but then came the shocking realisation that she did in fact play off 4.
Anyway, never say die, after all we did get shots!
It was a close match with one loss and one win, but with all the Stableford scores needing to be added together to decide the winner, it fell to LC and her partner who came in with a good score to give Alderley the overall win.
Friday, Bell Cup away at Styal, report below.
I would just like to say WELL DONE to all the ladies and long may this success story continue.
