The Retford ladies bronze league consisting of 7 ladies in the team, with handicaps ranging from 19 to 38, are halfway through the season with 3 matches left to play. The team so far has narrowly won the 2 home matches against Southwell and Sherwood and lost heavily away from home at Norwood. The weather took its toll with heavy rain closing the course for our away match at Southwell on June 12 which will now be rescheduled for 29th August. So it’s hotting up for the promotion race to get back into the A division in the Ladies Notts Bronze league.
42 ladies played in the Lady Captain’s away day at Ashby Decoy last Tuesday. Despite a worrying weather forecast the conditions were calm and fine and all ladies remained dry. The winners were Lynda Moore - 1st division. Jean Cooper - 2nd division and Cynthia Herrington - 3rd division. The team prize went to Sue Boyes, Lin Tongue and Joan Birtles. Nearest the pin was Jean Cooper. The event concluded with meal in the clubhouse where Lady Captain, Helen Dean, presented the prizes and thanked all the ladies for supporting the event.”
“The Coronation Foursomes” played by the ladies on August 6th was won by Abi Kennedy and Jacky Walsh finishing a close second were Geraldine Matthews and Jean Brunt.
A nice win and a welcome to Retford Golf Club for Abi , one of our newest members and our youngest at age 24.”
