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
