Last Wednesday week was the 2nd round in the 2024 Single Matchplay Knockout and, unlike the previous week, we were blessed with perfect conditions. 

With matches completed against Kathy Parker, Lisa Marsh, Mary Hogan and Sue Skelton, it was Fiona Smart, Jennifer Fagan, Fay Gimenez and Leigh Robertson who were through to the next round held last Friday.

This penultimate round of the Singles Matchplay involved only A Graders this year with the results being Jennifer Fagan d Fiona Smart and Leigh Robertson d Fay Gimenez. Commiserations to Fiona and Fay, but well done on reaching the semi-finals. Congratulations and good luck to Jennifer and Leigh who will play off in the Championship round this Wednesday, vying for a place on the Nikki Irwin Salver.

Wednesday’s competition round was a 4BBB Irish Stableford and our ladies were a sea of green and orange. The winners were Gail Scobie, Joy Williams, Gillian Holst and Darrie Nightingale (76 c/b) beating Jill L Brown, Ann Schuhmacher, Jane Bonner and Lynne M White (76). Balls to 73.

Wednesday’s Nine-Hole winner in a field of 10 ladies was Jo Scott with another fantastic score (24pts). Shannon Stokes was the runner up (16pts) and Lynne Alford won the NTP.

We only had 18 ladies in our Friday Single Stableford competition, possibly due to early morning showers. The winner was Lisa Marsh (35pts c/b) who edged out Jane Anderson (35pts) by a whisker.

Balls to 30pts c/b.
