OLTON WINNERS OF FIRST BRONZE CHAMPIONSHIP
On a glorious day, Monday 4th July the first ever Ladies Bronze Division Team Championship took place at Coventry Golf Club. With wall to wall sunshine and a fantastic course to play on, 13 Warwickshire Club Teams of 4 players each competed for this Championship. Rules stated it was to be a Stableford Format with the top points score of three from each Team to count.
Excitement if not some trepidation from players in this inaurgural tournament, where Bronze Division players in most cases, were playing in this Team format for the first time. As the scores started coming in, there were some tired and slightly disappointed faces on show, as it seemed that shots into the greens either stopped on the apron rather than running on to the green or if the shots hit the putting surface, then they ran on and on!! Lovely course in great condition but the greens got the better of many players today.
As usual, some players did manage to conquer the greens with the best Individual score being 35 points, with only a few others in the 30's. The CSS however was raised to 78, Reduction only!!
WELL DONE LADIES !! Gill Creed, Annette Bucknall, Ray Davies and Di Corless
