The Ladies section B team of Market Rasen Golf Club Ltd have had a successful season winning the Division 4 North League.

A delegation of Lady members attended the AGM of the Lincolnshire Ladies County Golf Association at Woodhall Spa and were presented with a framed picture as winners of their league. The B team has now been promoted to Division 3.

This year the Marshall Trophy was won by Ruth Anyan and Jane Salt with 33 points and they elected the Lincolnshire air ambulance as their chosen charity to which proceeds from the competition and the three putt fund were donated.

In second place was Rosemarie Proudlove and Sue Archer with 32 points; third place went to Aileen Sellars and Rosemarie Lawton on 31 points.

The Daily Mail foursomes is a National competition and each club sends a couple to represent the club in the initial knock out rounds. Next year Di Warburton and Rosemarie Proudlove will be the Market Rasen Club’s representative team having won the club competition.

In second place were Rosemarie Lawton and Jackie Parker, while third place was claimed by Sue Archer and Chris Bean.

The final qualifying Stableford of the season was won by Sue Archer (22) on 37 points, with Rosemarie Lawton (24) in second place on 34 points and Jenny Holborn (18) in third on 33 points.

Aileen Sellars has come up with lots of fun ideas for social winter golf.

The Fairway Golf competition went down very well and several Ladies preferred the idea of teeing up on the fairway rather than tackling carries over heather and bracken from the designated Ladies Tees.

Mas Wilkinson (36) won the competition with 53 points. Jackie Parker (27) took second with 48 points and Glenys Cairney (29) third with 47 points.

Cupboards were raided to find costumes for the Witches Brew competition and there was certainly some interesting golfing attire on display.

The winning team was Sue Archer, Jenny Holborn and Sue Borthwick with 76 points and they each received a goody bag full of tricks and treats.

In second place was the team of Bridget Holmes, Sue Would and Josie Bridgwater on 75 points and in third were Judy Philips, Sheilah Mitchell and Helen Grinham on 67 points.

For the “Pick your poison” competition, ladies had to elect nine scoring holes before they set off on their round; unsurprisingly no one chose the challenging 10th.

The winner was Sue Downes with a creditable 20 points over nine holes (back four, 10 points).

In second, also with a good score of 20 points was Rosemarie Lawton (back four, nine points) and third was Di Warburton on 19 points (back four, 11 points).

Winning the 18-hole competition was Di Warburton with 33 points (back four, 11 points).

In second was Ronnie Sullivan on 33 points (back nine, 19 points) and in third was Sheilah Mitchell also on 33 points (back nine, 16 points).
