Two days after a course closure, due to waterlogged fairways and greens following heavy rain, a clear and bright autumnal day dawned for the new Lady Captain tee off at Market Rasen Golf Course.
And beginning her captaincy year was Hefina Brumpton.
New member Joy Purkiss drove her ball closest to the Lady Captain’s ball and won a bottle of champagne.
The main competition of the day consisted of teams of three, with the winning team of Jane Salt, Helen Wilson and Barbara Chard coming out top with a score of 76 points.
In second place were Lynne Patrick, Tilly Lawrence and Wendy Harrison on 72; third were Di Warburton, Sally Scott and Sylvia Mowbray on 70; fourth place, after a countback, were Rosemarie Lawton, Sue Archer and Joy Purkiss, also on 70, and in fifth place were Rosemarie Proudlove, Maz Wilkinson and Rebecca Ross on 65.
