At the recent Ladies Club Championships at Shifnal Golf Club, Alex Peters reigned supreme with a 144 gross. At the same event, her mother Ann was awarded the Mary Turner Figurine for the best nett score of 152.
Moor Hall GC (Sutton Coldfield) Head Professional Cameron Clark shot a new course record of 63 (-7) playing in the August Medal at the club on August 14th.
In late August the Staverton Park GC Ladies Captain, Sam Harding and Vice Captain Denise Aitchison played round seven of the Daily Mail Foursomes National competition, comfortably beating their opponents from Porters Park GC 6&5.
The ladies now travel to Marriott St Pierre in Chepstow for the finals event in October, where the last 16 pairs out of an entry of over 3000 compete for the trophy.
It can be said that the lucky matching dresses strike again!
And following the club’s Presidents Day qualifier, both Sam and Denise’s handicap index reduced to a matching 15.8! They both agreed “It was a sign!”
Good luck in the finals ladies. A little bird tells me there’s some new kit shopping to be done!
