23 Long Sutton ladies invited along a guest for a fun better ball competition followed by a 2 course meal on the first Wednesday in May. This event has always proved popular and this year was no different, involving players from 15 different golf clubs, from as far afield as Oxford and Radlett joining those from Somerset, Dorset and Devon. Unfortunately the weather forecast was for rain and although there were some showers early on, everyone had dried out by the time they returned to the Clubhouse.
The course was in excellent condition with good scores being posted. Mandy Head partnering Claire Walker from Mendip Spring GC, were the overall winners with a grand total of 43 points, including a very impressive 25 points on the back 9. The rest of the field were tightly packed together with count back deciding the 2nd and 4th positions.
Nearest the pin’s on the 7th hole were won by Ros Williams and Annya Pattern, with Angela Body winning on the 17th. There were just two 2s, both on the 17th, by Mandy Head and Angela Body.
Sarah thanked the Long Sutton staff for all their hard work in ensuring that the day went well and thanked all those who had taken part for coming and making it an enjoyable day for all.
