Our matches were on their way by 11.40am this morning, and keenly contested throughout. All competitors fought hard for their match and the quality of golf played today was fantastic.

The top half of the draw saw No 1 seed, Louise Martin, having a challenging match against Ann Sewell who played steady, consistent golf. Ann eventually came out tops, winning on the 18th green. Reigning champion Alyssa Henderson took on our treasurer, Una Cooper in a great tussle which ended in a 3&2 victory for Alyssa.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

In the bottom half of the draw, Jenny Sewell played some great golf against Jill McNicoll and clinched the game with a birdie on the 17th. We observed a well contested match between Ellie Bent and Dawn Young where it could’ve gone either way, but Ellie closed the match out on the 19th.

The best net score was Tina Bracken-Chalmers with a net 75.  In second place was Una Cooper with a net 76 and third was Mary Richardson with a net 77 (bih).

Many thanks to The Glen Golf Club for hosting the competition, to the golf staff for their help during the day, to the bar and catering team for looking after us so well and to the Glen members who helped ball spot at the 1st and 13th- your help was much appreciated! A special mention to the Greens Team who, despite the recent weather, had the course in fantastic condition. Your hard work did not go unnoticed among our members.

We look forward to playing our Championship Matchplay on Saturday 27th April, and both Championship and Handicap Quaich on Sunday 28th April and Monday 6th May. Congratulations to all those who qualified for the Matchplay competitions.
