Veterans’ Championship 2021 – Army GC – Thursday 2nd September

55 ladies played at a very well presented Army Golf Course today.

A two-tee start meant the players got round remarkably quickly. Some found the greens tricky and had ditches apparently appearing out of nowhere, but none of this bothered Jose Kellenberger from Hockley GC who won the Nett trophy in Division 1 with a magnificent 3 under par 70. In her thank you speech she regaled us with her tale of getting lost on her way to the course and going round in circles, so was surprised to start her round on the 10th with a birdie 3.

Deirdre Randall from Hartley Wintney won the scratch trophy beating the Hampshire Vets Captain Sue Gale (Weybrook Park GC) on countback with a gross 84. Second in the nett was Judy Ames (Royal Winchester GC) with a 72, beating Liz Borrow (Blackmoor GC) on countback.

Division 2 was played as a Stableford with 5 players coming in with 35 points. With a back nine of 22, Brenda Mayle from Blacknest GC took home the trophy with Janice Thomas (Sherfield Oaks GC) and Linda Dell (Basingstoke GC) in third. There was also a super seventies prize covering both divisions which was won by Wendy Collens at her home club with 36 points.

A big thank you to Richard Lloyd and his team for looking after us so well, especially the caterers. Also thanks to the starters and the Hampshire referees Jackie Keay and Debbie Steadman.
