The day of the annual Ladies Pairs Open, Saturday 19th September dawned; a beautiful magical, misty, sunny morning. OGC looked simply stunning and received many compliments on the day. 96 ladies took part in a 3/4 handicap betterball pairs competiton and the winners were Yen Pham from Shirley and Sharon McIntosh from Harborne.

The day also raised £702 for the Lady President's Charity - the RNIB Pears Centre in Coventry. Our members excelled themselves with their generous donations - the raffle table looked amazing. Our dapper starters on the day (Frank Carter, Dave Bennett and Martin Butlin) also swelled the funds by challenging each fourball for a £1 sweep each to all land their first drives on the fairway - the successful 4 fourballs each received a bottle of bubbly. A big thank you to all involved.
