Lady golfers get­ting into the fes­tive spirit

Mansfield Courier - - Courier Sport - By LINDA TERRY

PREPA­RA­TIONS are well un­der way for a crazy day for our Christ­mas cel­e­bra­tion event this week.

Santa is primed, the dec­o­ra­tions are pre­pared, a lit­tle bit of fancy cook­ing is be­ing un­der­taken and plans are afoot for a fun, laugh­ter-filled 14 holes of golf on Wed­nes­day for nearly 40 ladies.

Wed­nes­day golf was a Sum­mer Cup stable­ford round, and a good field of 19 ladies took part.

Win­ning with a lovely 36 points was Louise Calvert-Jones and run­ner up Donna Sedg­man with 35.

Line balls went to Gayle Wells, Lyn Hol­land and Sam Bai­ley all with 34, Mil­lie Cum­ming and Meg Broom­field with 33 and Norma Fri­day and Lyn Poul­son both with 30 points.

Thurs­day’s 9-hole Ge­orge Walker was won by Nicki Cooper with 16 points.

On Satur­day it was a par round, and four girls came in with -4, but the money, on a count-back, went to Donna Sedg­man.

Run­ner up was An­drea Mars­den. Mar­ion Sargeant and Sam Bai­ley were the other two in the mix with -4.

Sam Bai­ley also picked up the near­est the pins on the third and 16th.

On Fri­day it was the fi­nal home and away round for our 4BBB sum­mer pen­nant and it was a highly an­tic­i­pated clash for Mans­field against Bright with the win­ner to go through to the fi­nal against Ju­bilee next week.

Con­fi­dence was high af­ter our great win the pre­vi­ous week, but sadly it was not to be.

The pair­ing of Gayle Wells and Linda Terry came out strongly and de­spite a great fight back from four down by the Bright pair and some stress­ful mo­ments, they were able to hold on to the lead through­out the match to win 2/1.

Our other pairs also had tough bat­tles, but Lyn Hol­land and Les­ley An­der­son were just pipped to lose on the 18th and Nicki Cooper and Lyn Poul­son

lost on the 16th, re­sult­ing in the 1-2 loss for the team.

So it is off to Myrtle­ford next week to play off for third and fourth place while Bright gets to take on Ju­bilee for the crown.

Well done to all the girls who’ve taken part this year, how­ever, and we cer­tainly had a lot of fun with the Bright girls in this friendly for­mat of pen­nant.

Our Christ­mas pre­sen­ta­tion this week will also in­clude the ladies Pre­mier League pre­sen­ta­tion and Player of the Year count down.

Win­ners of the Pre­mier League for 2020 were the Squirters team of Donna Sedg­man, Gayle Wells and Sue Parsons – great ef­fort girls.
