It was a beautiful day at Alresford Golf Club for this year’s Division 1 Autumn Meeting and the course was in excellent condition for one of the final events in our 2015 calendar.
This is always a very popular event and 2015 was no exception with 101 ladies taking part. As in previous year’s there were plenty of nett and gross prizes on offer for three divisions, plus trophies for the meeting’s best scratch and nett scores. In addition, competitors also play for trophies for the best aggregate nett and scratch scores after adding the scores from the Championship rounds played at Meon Valley in May.
Despite the perfect weather conditions, Alresford still gave our competitors a tough challenge evident in the fact that the CSS went up to 74. The best gross score of the day was 71 posted by Kerry Smith from Waterlooville and by home grown talent Kelly Travers. It was tremendously tight but countback dictated that Kelly would be presented with the Meeting Scratch Coasters this season. Other strong gross scores came from Diane Oram (Basingstoke) and Deirdre Randall (Hartley Wintney). In May at the County Championship Kelly had also had a great round and the two scores together provided her with an aggregate nett total of 146, good enough to also bestow upon her the Aggregate Nett Cup.
It was a nervous wait in the clubhouse for Pat Geary from Royal Winchester who carded an excellent nett 70. She would have to wait for 39 more ladies to complete their rounds before finally learning that she would be this year’s winner of the Meeting Nett Salver.
The last trophy of the day, the Aggregate Scratch Porringer was retained by last year’s winner Kerry Smith in spectacular style. A hole in one on the second paving the way to an aggregate gross score of 145.
