Testing conditions for Winter League contests

Evesham Editorial 13th Nov, 2017   0

IT WAS a day of mixed weather fortunes when Broadway Golf Club ladies competed in round two of their Winter League.

After a dank and dreary start to the morning and with torrential rain forecast, the decision to play the Greensomes match over nine holes was a welcome one among all 20 competing pairs.

Second round winners were Linda Carruthers and Jayne Rose with an excellent 16 points despite the damp conditions.

Achieving a close second were Irene Hawkes and Andi Stedman with 15 points. They shared this score with Julia Fortescue and partner Molly King-Smith and Esther Pettitt and Louise McKee who finished third and fourth respectively on countback.

SIXTY men’s teams competed in the second round of their Winter League and, with a severe drop in temperature and biting wind to contend with, playing conditions were tough.

Despite the cold, the course still played superbly, giving all teams some excellent scoring opportunities in the Betterball contest.

This was ably demonstrated by Chris Davis and David Goodwin who brought in 45 points to win the day.

Sam McPherson and Chris Smith and Paul Whelan and Dereck Buttler finished second and third respectively on countback. In fourth place were Justin Loram and Ian Weatherhead with 44 points.

Both the ladies’ and men’s teams now look forward in anticipation of more favourable weather to play their third round competitions later this month.
