Market Rasen Golf Club’s ladies’ section held their ever-popular Invitation Day last Wednesday.

The large field of 92 players prompted a two-tee start, and after a complete day of rain on the previous day, the sun shone all day for the ladies.

Market Rasen member Joy Purkiss and her guest from Seacroft GC, Liz Emmerson, won with a fantastic score of 44 points.

Carol Mann and Diane Humphries finished as runners-up with 43 points on countback from Jenny Holborn and Lesley Burton.

The next two places were also separated by countback, all with 43 points as Bridget Holmes and Freda Cooper took fourth place ahead of Fran Pullen and Judy Wildon.

Two’s were scored by Julia Sales, Sue Newton, Pam Westhorpe, Jane Salt, Stella Goldstein, Joan Wilkinson and Judy Wildon while the longest drive prizes went to Sue Borthwick in the Silver Division, and Liz Emmerson for the Bronze Division.

Nearest-the-pin on the 18th hole were Lesley Burton (guest) and Helen Wilson (member).
