Thirteen ladies from the Warwick Golf Club travelled to Clifton on Wednesday to play the Clifton Open Day.

Congratulations go to Sam Hinze who won the overall gross.

The Warwick ladies club finished third in the 2021 Zone One Open Day Pennants 2021 behind winners City and runners up Pittsworth.

Meanwhile back at the Warwick Club, the Ladies enjoyed perfect conditions out on the course on the first day of Spring.

Vicki Bennett was paying more attention to her golf ball than to the beautiful Spring conditions.

She put her head down, kept her eye on the back of the ball and won the Danny Lyons Sports Store Single Stableford with a great score of 35 points.

She also secured the pro pin on the fifth to wrap up a great day.

Hot on her heels was the ever consistent former one armed bandit, Di Johnston returning 34 points to secure the first ball in the rundown.

Other to score a ball were Kath Devereux (30) and Tub Ingall (28).

Helen Daley scored 22 points to secure a win in the nine hole comepitition.

Roslyn Darton (17) was the runner up. Great to see Ros Darton back on the course and fairly chuffed to be playing again. Welcome back.

This event was played in two divisions.

In Division One Annice Payne returned a winning score of 71 nett.

Runner up was Melanie McLennan, who continued her consistent form returning 75 nett.

In Tub Ingall was successful in securing the Division Two prize after edging out Anne Lyons in a countback after each carded 71 nett.

Yvonne Pennington won the Division Two putting with 31 putts.

Balls in the rundown went to Molly Scotney (76), Liz Cockram (77), Gwen Mills (78) c/b, Marg Adcock (78).

Molly, Kath Devereux, Trish Roberts and Liz all grabbed a share of the pro pin on the ninth hole.

A good field teed off in the nine hole competition.

Taking the line honours with an awesome 17 points was the Ladies hard working Captain Roslyn Darton earning herself a Sam Eaves Pro Shop voucher.

Good to see Ros’ preinjury form making a welcome return.

Joely Singleton with 16 points was the runner up and won a pro shop credit.

Great to have Joely back among the group.
