On Wednesday 18th November, 13 ladies ventured out in the warm weather to play a social Stableford round of golf.
For those that had great round, I’m sorry that the scores could not be added to help your handicap but hopefully you can repeat the score when we are able to play formal competitions again.
Winner on the day was Charmaine Aplin with a wonderful 41 points followed by Jenny Drury with a great 38 points.
They were followed by Ann Semple with 35, Bernie Gatehouse and Jo Cullen with 34, Pauline Walkom and Mel Johnson with 33, Di Krutli, Tonya Merritt and Jo Pickhaver with 28 and Susy Schebella with 27. Marie Kingsbury with 16 and Di Millwood with 11 played 9 holes.
