Olton Ladies complete the Double
On Saturday 23rd September, four of our Olton Ladies playing at Shirley, beat Ladbrook in the final of the Warwickshire 4somes Knock Out.
Not satisfied with that success, on Monday 25th they picked up another challenge. The final of the Warwickshire League was played at Handsworth when a team of seven Olton Ladies faced last year's winners Kenilworth.
Olton had a great win beating Kenilworth 4-3, tense, exciting with the winning putt on the 18th green of the last game.
