Women

Open­ing day for the women drew a good crowd of 32 play­ers. The 2014 club cap­tain Bev Lamb wel­comed ev­ery­one back and in­tro­duced two new nine hole mem­bers. Nan­cye Payze hit the first ball to get the sea­son un­der­way. The com­pe­ti­tion was " skins" which cre­ated great in­ter­est in the club­house at the end of play. Any­one with a "four-pointer" stable­ford look good for some win­nings. Joce Downs, Nan­cye Payze, Bev Lamb, Sue Han­cock and Lynn Ryan were the lucky golfers! On Satur­day, round one of the Sum­mer Cup was played in con­di­tions not con­du­sive to Sum­mer golf, al­though they did im­prove dur­ing the round.
