Mixed weather doesn’t stop the ladies of March Meadows

The March Meadows Ladies have enjoyed a mixed bag in terms of weather over the past several weeks.

The March Meadows Ladies have enjoyed a mixed bag in terms of weather over the past several weeks.

On May 24, the ladies played a Pin and Spoon competition and the qualification for Lee Budden. Christine McGovern was low gross winner. Corinne Floyd and Wendy Klyne tied for runner-up. Low nets were shot by Lorraine Oliver, Sam Jones, Sylvia Lingren, and Margaret Lavigne. Chip-ins were carded by Corinne Floyd on number six, Christine McGovern on number 17 and Margaret Lavigne on number 18.

May 31 saw a day of perfect golf weather. Low gross winner for the day was Sam Jones. Sylvia Lingren was one stroke off for runner-up. Veronica Clarkson and Lorraine Oliver shot low nets. Christine McGovern was KP (closest to the pin on number one) winner of the day.

The regular golf day was cancelled due to a slight downpour on June 7, so the ladies had a lot of catching up on June 14. The ladies played a Pin and Spoon competition, Dorothy Franklin, Beat the Champ, Putting Cup and both the first round of par day and the start of Summer Eclectic.

Sam Jones was low gross winner for the day and Phyllis Logan shot runner-up. Low net winners were Veronica Clarkson, Lorraine Lawrence, Marion Zboyovsky, Irene Pearse and Sylvia Lingren. Lynn Girard shot the only birdie of the day on number two. Three chip-ins were carded: Lynn Girard on number 2, Lorraine Lawrence on number 8, and Norma O’Connell on number 11. KP for the day was won by Phyllis Logan.

Apart from the 18-hole division, there is a group of nine-hole ladies which anyone is welcome to join in with, you need not be a member.
