Warwickshire Vets Ladies Golf Association Singles Championship (9th August 2021)

4 ladies from Olton Golf Club entered the WVLGA Singles Championship this year which took place at Leamington and County Golf Club.  The event had been due to take place in June but had to be rescheduled from its original venue of Copt Heath Golf Club due to freak storms rendering the course unplayable on the day.  44 ladies from a mixture of clubs in Warwickshire competed for the trophies and the course presented a stern challenge for all the golfers, but the ladies of Olton performed well achieving the following results:

WVLGA Championship – Overall Gross Trophy          WVLGA Championship – Overall Nett Trophy

5th Glenda Loram                                                          2nd Glenda Loram
8th Hilary Dixon                                                             6th Wendy McIntyre

9th Elizabeth Smith                                                       12th Elizabeth Smith
13th Wendy McIntyre                                                    24th Hilary Dixon  

Huge congratulations go to Glenda Loram for winning the WVLGA Championship Division One Trophy, with a Nett 72 score, 3 shots ahead of the second place lady.  Glenda has recently joined the ladies of OGC so it is lovely to see her doing so well in a Warwickshire Vets event.
