It was a beautiful day and conditions on the course were excellent. Everyone had an enjoyable day’s golf, no-one had their handicap adjusted, and a fun day was had by all.
The match against South Pembs was played at Milford last Thursday and was played in near perfect conditions and was very friendly, ending up all square with both sides winning three matches.
AFTER last week’s most excellent captain’s day, for which Pat Evans would like to thank everyone and concerned, the ladies had a more relaxed week.
Last Tuesday, eleven ladies played their weekly tournament in glorious sunshine and the winner was Jackie Skelhorn with 39 points, the runner-up was Cheryl Eva with 33 points. There was only one two recorded and the winner was Jackie, with a two on hole ten so she claimed the roll-over kitty.
Last Sunday, eighteen ladies played, again in perfect weather conditions in the West Wales Commemorative Plate Foursomes which is a pair’s competition. The winners were Barbara Phillips and Liz Durward with 76.5 nett, and the runners-up were Denise Kimber and Enid De Wolf with a 77.5 nett.
