HEAVY rainfall and standing water on the greens has somewhat limited the Market Rasen and District Ladies section competition programme recently. However, several matches have taken place.

The league A team against Normanby Hall match was lost 3–1, but they the A team went on to play Elsham and won 3–1.

The B league team beat Seacroft 3–1 and then lost 3 1/2 - 1/2 to Waltham Windmill.

Unfortunately, the A team lost their fourth round match in the Mail on Sunday competition to Immingham 3–2 after an excellent run.

Due to a down pour on the day, the St George’s fantasy away day had to be cancelled, but – with the ladies having arrived dressed suitably in red and white - quick thinking from Jenny Brundle led to an improvised indoor putting competition, which proved very competitive and great fun.

Some found it difficult to judge the borrow and putting line on the carpet, but not so Jackie Parker, who scored 120 points to be named putting champion.

The Dring Trophy Competition was played on May 2, with the ladies delighted to be back playing golf in sunny weather on the course looking lush and green.

The winner was Mel Gregory, with a nett score of 71. In second place, following a count back on the last nine holes, was Josie Bridgwater, with a nett score of 76, and Rosemarie Lawton was in third place, also with a nett score of 76.

The best gross score in the bronze division of the day went to Glenys Cairney with 108 (nett 75) and the best gross silver division score was returned by Bridget Holmes with 87 (nett 75).
