Bennett and Great­batch too strong

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - SPORT -

WALLY Bennett and her guest Anne Great­batch took the honours at Oak­land Park Golf Club’s Ladies Open re­cently.

In a com­pe­ti­tion played un­der the Stable­ford sys­tem, where com­peti­tors score points ac­cord­ing to the num­ber of shots per hole rather than scores for the to­tal round, Bennett and her in­vited guest proved just too strong for the 37 other com­pet­ing pairs.

Their win­ning score of 46 was three too many for run­ners-up Mary Holmes and guest Val Grif­fith, with an­other club stal­wart Jane Vich and her part­ner Pat Holt a fur­ther point adrift in third.

Holt had the bonus of be­ing the guest to drive near­est to the pin at the 14th, while an­other of the day’s vis­i­tors Anne Rees achieved the long­est drive of the day at the fourth.

San­dra Swanston was the mem­ber near­est to the pin at the sixth, while the mem­ber’s award for length went to Lynn Robin­son for her mon­ster drive at the 16th.

A week ear­lier there was no joy for the home play­ers when the club hosted the Ladies Open, again played us­ing the stable­ford points sys­tem.

Mau­reen Stod­dart and Pamela Holloway from Wexham car­ried off the top prize thanks to a score of 43, with Cas­tle Royal pair­ings Chris Ec­cle­ston and Gail Fuller and Sue Al­lan and Linda Jones both two points adrift in sec­ond and third.

HONOURS: Wally Bennett, Kathy Snow­don and Anne Great­batch at the Ladies Open
