There is weather and then there is County Championship weather – in its bucketfulls!!
Today, 64 women from across the county participated in the Division 2 Championship (HI 20.1 – 36.0) in the most incredible changing weather. One moment almost sunshine, the next monsoon type rain followed by thunder and lightning!!! At one point the weather stopped play for what felt like an eternity.
And as if this was not enough to contend with, the pin positions on the wonderful Corhampton greens were very tricky.
However each competitor valiantly completed their round and everyone deserved a prize for this alone!
Winning the Mrs H Evans Candlestick in Division 1 section, with a very respectable 34 points was Cookie Bridgeman from Royal Winchester Golf Club, followed by Anne Luetchford from Corhampton Golf Club and Sarah Densham from Alresford Golf Club with 30 points each, and Jo Canning from Blacknest in 4th place with 29 points and Frances Berriman from Blackmoor with 28 points.
In the Division 2 section local Corhampton player Judy Andrews scored 33 points and won the Di Stock Candlestick, with Jackie Richards from Corhampton Golf Club in runner up with 30 points on countback with Annie Atherton from Hayling Island GC and Gill Cooper from Corhampton, and Barbara Hobbs from Lee-On-The-Solent on 29 points.
Local knowledge paid off and congratulations to all our prize winners.
