TWENTY ladies pairs played for the Huntington Cups at Evesham Golf Club and the winners were Jill Cleary and Jean Bevan who came in with an impressive nett 79.

THE RAY Till Trophy attracted a field of 20 and it was Conryn Abbott and Jean Bevan who won the day on countback with a score of -2.

This was a drawn pairs competition using half combined handicap and the format was Greensomes Bogey.

The rain played its part throughout the competition and proved too much for some, while others just enjoyed the challenge of scoring in such wet conditions.

A friendly competition was also played by ladies who did not feature in the main contest and the winners were Angela Budden and Penny Osborne.

The weather again tried to weaken players’ spirits as it continued to drizzle throughout the event, but most of the golfers were determined to enjoy the occasion knowing they were going to be served a wonderful cooked breakfast and a glass of Bucks Fizz to wash it down with once play had finished.

The green staff again worked tremendously hard to clear standing water from a few of the greens which players to miss a few less putts!

The winners with 74 points were Ian Tate, Penny Osborne and Dinah Wood who each won a fabulously arranged basket of fruit.

Hot on their tail with 72 points and claiming second place on countback were Mel Evans, Ken Hunt and Angela Budden who each won an arrangement of locally grown strawberries and a bunch of asparagus.
