Lambourne ladies taste glory with victory at the Midlands Festival 2018!
Our Midlands Festival event took place this week as we made our return to Walmley Golf Club on Wednesday morning for the second successive year. A strong field of 64 ladies gathered from all areas of the country to enjoy a great two days in the Midlands and compete for three places at our Yonex Tour Championship at The Buckinghamshire Golf Club in September
Jackie Edwards & Anne-Marie Gilbert (Lambourne) went wire-to-wire and led the event from start to finish with 39 points on the first afternoon at Walmley and then a superb 41 points at Robin Hood to take the title with a brilliant overall score of 80 points. Helen Lowe & Melanie Edge (Scraptoft) took second place with scores of 38 and 40 points to finish with 78, narrowly beating Ann and Jill Pittard (Hearsall) who returned two scores of 35 and 41 points to finish on 76 points in third. All three pairings were delighted to finish in the top three and qualify for the Yonex Tour Championship in September. Well played ladies!
