Our Autumn Meeting 4BBB for the Renee Shipman Trophy was held on 6th September at Market Harborough Golf Club on a hot late summer’s day.
Umbrellas for shade and plenty of liquids were the order of the day. We also had to contend with bullocks on the 9th green, a lone swan waddling across the first fairway as we were starting and a red kite riding a thermal over the 4th green. The swan seemed very confident that it wouldn’t get hit! The joys of country life!
A good score of 43 by Annette O’Meara and Di Thornton of Charnwood Forest GC secured 1st place and the Renee Shipman Trophy
Other placings were
2nd Julia Dunkley & Ruth Palmer of Kibworth with 40 points (on count back)
3rd Julia Booth & Ann Martin of Charnwood Forest with 40 points (on count back)
4th Marian Overlunde & Sarah Bowler of Lingdale with 39 points
5th Julia Holley & Trish Formoy of Kibworth with 38 points
As there were three sets of winners in attendance at the end of the day it was decided to make a presentation to those present. The other prizes will be posted and the trophy will be presented to the winners at a later date.
Many thanks to Market Harborough Golf Club for making us so welcome and to the committee for their hard work in making the day run smoothly.
Thank you to all the ladies who supported this event in what has been another very difficult year. It was a pleasure to see you all.
