Busy few weeks for Orchardleigh ladies
The Ladies’ Section at Orchardleigh Golf Club have had a busy few weeks playing in various competitions and matches.
At the end of May the ladies competed in the Vincent Cup which is played over two consecutive Sundays as a qualifying medal competition.
On the first Sunday, Sue Sweet came in with the best score on a nett seventy six and Sarah Hynds was closely behind with seventy seven. On the second day of play Sarah Hynds came in with a nett seventy four and was one ahead of Sue Sweet on seventy five. They both had an aggregate of one hundred and fifty one but Sarah Hynds won the Vincent Cup on countback. Diana Bullock and Anne Regler both came in with seventy five on the second round but their first round games were not good enough to match the winner.
In early June a good number of ladies played in the Ping 4BBB but the excellent winning score of forty six stableford points was achieved by the pairing of Ann James and Sue Marshall. The runners-up were Mel Sutherland and Jan Light with forty four points.
On Thursday, 23rd June the Val Stringer competition was played. The teams of three are drawn to play together with the two best scores to count. There was some fantastic play that day as the winning team made up of the Lady Captain, Anne Carpenter, Vice-Captain Loes de Kleuver and Sonia Probert came in with an astounding score of ninety nine points. Sonia Probert had the best individual score of forty five points and other ladies also brought in scores of over forty points.
The Keysell Cup was won by Sue Marshall with forty two points and Loes de Kleuver was runner-up with thirty eight points. Then on Thursday, 7th July the Macey Cup and Pudney Pitcher were played. Although the competition is played in unison, the Macey Cup is for the over 70s and the Pudney Pitcher for those aged 69 and under. A total of twenty four ladies took part overall and again there was some high scoring with Pat Jones bringing in a brilliant forty five stableford points to win the Macey Cup with the runner-up being Lin Handley on forty three points.
The Pudney Pitcher was won by Lorraine Collings with forty points and the runner-up was Gail Painter on thirty nine points.
