AUTUMN MEETING DIV 2 2015
MONDAY, 21 SEPTEMBER
AT OAK PARK GC
(18-hole medal for players with handicaps 21-36)
(Aggregate trophies are in respect of Championship Week plus Autumn Mtg Div 2 scores)
The Autumnal weather was grey and slightly damp to start with but the predicted rain did eventually persist and unfortunately most ladies had a rather wet round. However, 38 ladies found a very welcoming Oak Park GC nestled on the Surrey/Hampshire border and Lady Captain Ali Miller and her ladies were wonderful hosts.
The course was in lovely condition with reports of tricky greens in tough and challenging conditions. Indeed the rain took its toll increasing the CSS for the day to 74 resulting in reductions only. However, a wonderful meal welcomed the soggy players back into the clubhouse and congratulations to you all for struggling round and completing your rounds in awful conditions.
Prizes were awarded to Rowena Persaud from South Winchester for the best gross score and to Jean Ahern from Gosport & Stokes Bay for the best nett. Meanwhile Lorraine Finney from Basingstoke and Rachel Pelly were valiant runners up of the gross and nett competitions respectively.
There were also 2 trophies to be won for the best aggregate nett and gross scores when the Autumn Meeting score is added to the Bronze Championship score held in May at Meon Valley. This year one player took both trophies managing to put to together two good rounds 4 months apart. This is a great achievement so congratulations to Meon Valley’s Eileen Ware on her combined gross of 209 and nett 157.
Thanks go to all at Oak Park for helping the day go so well and see you all at Blacknest in 2016.
