7-Day – October Medal – 1st Pat Ward and 2nd Lin Goodey

Team Alliance - With only 3 players in this team and Rogie having to use her score twice, she rose to the challenge and led her team members to victory. Congratulations to Rogie, Barbara Baldwin and Kay Baker who made such an excellent team.

Our Medal Final was played this week. All winners of monthly medals were eligible to enter this competition. Emma Wood who usually plays in our 7-day competitions, took a day off work to play and it was great that she did. Emma wins the Kathy Dale Trophy with a nett 71. Great result. She will be presented with her trophy at the Ladies AGM on 3rd November. 2nd place (hot on the heels of her Hole in One) is Lin Goodey, with nett 75. And 3rd place is Rogie Taylor with nett 76.

The winner of the Autumn Medal with a fabulous nett 68 is Sally Weekes, cutting her handicap by 2 strokes. In 2nd place, also with a fabulous nett 68, is Katy Cook who has likewise had a 2 stroke handicap cut. “My first ever sub 100 score” said Katy. A real celebration! 3rd place goes to Angela Chatterton with nett 69 and in 4th place with nett 71 is Mary Harrison. With such excellent scores our top 4 golfers had scores under nett par and have had their handicaps cut. Congratulations to each of them.

Kathy Dale, Ladies' Captain
