Unfortunately a cancelled flight left our pair from La Moye stranded in Jersey the night before and forced them to fly in that morning, missing the competition all together. Thank you Juanita and Gina for persevering and to Jane Baker from North Hants who generously led them round the course for 9 holes.
Indeed the North Hants ladies, led by captain Kate Pinto, were wonderful as ball spotters and starters and our own County Referee Di Stock did a wonderful job keeping the field moving and doing most of the preparation for the day.
The course was in tremendous condition and the greens true and fast as described by those who mastered them. Others found lots of sand and with the sun shining most of the time for some it was as if at the beach!
A wonderful start to the season with warm hospitality laid on by the north Hampshire club and staff.
Congratulations to Diane Oram (Basingstoke) and Kerry Smith (Waterlooville) who retained their title as Gross Champions with a score of 77, and to Yvonne de Mellow and Debbie Tapply (Rowlands Castle) who were crowned Handicap Champions with a net score of 73.5.
