Despite the rain and miserable conditions,104 Ladies, representing 27 clubs across the Midlands, successfully took part in our annual Pairs Open competition.
The winners were Libby Carter and Helen Morrell from Rothley Park with an amazing 43 Stableford points! Narrowly beaten into second place were Ros Dawes and Jane Freeman from Redditch with 42 points, in third place were Glenda Loram and Gill Hayward from Maxstoke and Copt Heath with 41 points. For fourth and fifth place the competition scores were so close that a count back was required resulting in Sharon Dixon and Andrea Kiernan from Redditch narrowly beating Ginny Clifford and Clare Lucy from Harborne each with 39 points.
The best front and back 9s were won respectively by Hilary Dixon and Susan McKenna from Olton and Gail Jeacock and Annie Pendleton from Tadmarton Heath and Feldon Valley.
A monster drive saw Yen Pham from Shirley win the longest drive and Maria Jordan from Fulford Heath secured nearest the pin.
All Ladies were extremely complimentary about our course, facilities and the competition especially as this is one of the few Ladies Opens to be played on a Saturday! They are looking forward to playing in it again next year on 9th September 2017.
