THE WOMEN of Tar­bert Golf Club braved high winds and heavy rain over the week­end of July 29 and 30 to par­tic­i­pate in their club cham­pi­onship.

The win­ner of the 36-hole club cham­pi­onship, played over two days, was Seona Martin with a gross 174 over the 36 holes. Seona’s gross score of 88 on the Satur­day was par­tic­u­larly im­pres­sive, given the wild and wet con­di­tions.

He­len Sam­borek won the Hand­i­cap Cup, play­ing steadily over the 36 holes, with a spec­tac­u­lar pitch on the Sun­day onto the 16th green, hit­ting the flag pole and land­ing in the hole for a par.

Sheena Fer­gu­son came sec­ond in the cham­pi­onship, with Angela Ver­nel sec­ond in the hand­i­cap com­pe­ti­tion.
