2017 LADIES OPEN (Wed 26th April)

May 8, 2017

Another huge success for our Ladies section for this event with 48 players on the field.  We had Ladies playing from Seckford, St.Clements, Cretingham, Woodbridge, Stowmarket,  Southwold,  Felixstowe Ferry, Rushmere, Fynn Valley, Thorpeness, Bradfield College Berkshire, Waldringfield, Gorleston and Ipswich.

It was a cold day but all the ladies went out in good spirits and when the hail came down they played on regardless. (That’s hail on the green, not blossom!!)

A massive ‘Thank You’ to Michael, our greenkeeper, who does a superb job and to all of our ladies that volunteered their time and talents to contribute to all the various tasks. Well Done!

The results of the day were as follows:-

OVERALL WINNERS with a score of 51 –  Margaret Upton & Kim Wome (Cretingham GC)


SECOND PLACE  –  Jean Haste & Kate Simmonds (Woodbridge GC) with 48 points

THIRD PLACE – Jill London & Jill Self (Seckford GC) with 45 points, on countback beating Carolyn Youngs and Birgitta Bostrum (Thorpeness GC)
