AUTUMN MEETING DIV 1
MONDAY 25th SEPTEMBER, 2017
Army Golf Club
(18-hole medal for players with handicaps + to 20)
(Aggregate trophies are in respect of Championship morning, Salver, Bowl or Bronze Championship score plus Autumn Mtg score)
82 ladies managed to find the course tucked away in the woods in Aldershot for the Autumn Meeting.
As in previous years 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 Brokenhurst Manor Golf Club in May.
Overnight rain meant the course was playing long and head green keeper Phil and his team had done a great job in the early hours making it playable.
Army’s Eilean Cunningham took the best nett score for the day’s play on 73. Meanwhile, Kerry Smith, fresh from her week playing in the National Finals at Felixstowe Ferry GC, managed the treble with best meeting gross 75 and scooping both the aggregate gross 147 and aggregate Nett with 150. Kerry now plays off +2 (was +1 back in May) and has enjoyed a very good 2017 season.
Our thanks go to Army GC for hosting this end of season event and all there who helped start, marshall, water and feed everyone. A very fine meal was provided by Alan and Noreen in the kitchen as the photo shows including an interesting arrangement using pineapples and lettuce! Very colourful.
Next year’s event will be on Friday 5th October 2018 at Stoneham GC.
