There can be no better place to be on a crisp, bright but chilly autumnal morning than the glorious North Hants GC, especially if your role was to welcome the 73 women players from across the county of Hampshire, in the warm and plush surroundings of the very comfortable clubhouse.
Bobble hats were a necessity first thing and the only trace of the very early morning storm was a few puddles in bunkers. Surprisingly some women were still bravely wearing shorts and skorts – I salute you! Despite a serious 4 car accident on the A3 all players arrived to play and were more than eager to take on the many challenges of the excellent North Hants course. The sun shone, the wind picked up, the clouds burst from time to time and conditions were tough, however the current President of HLG, Chris Quinn from Hockley GC, showed that when the going gets tough the tough gets going. Playing to her handicap Chris recorded a special 77 gross and 73 nett score. This was enough for Chris to win both the Overall Best Gross prize and Overall Best Nett prizes, Chris has a great future in golf after this scoring!!
The Autumn Meeting also awards an Aggregate Gross trophy and an Aggregate Nett trophy, based on the scores at this Autumn Meeting and also the “Spring” medal round during the County Championships in May the same year. This year Kerry Smith from Waterlooville GC won the Aggregate Gross Trophy with a score of 156 and Jane Palmgren from Stoneham GC won the Aggregate Nett Trophy with a score of 154.
