2019 was not a kind year for our Championship weatherwise. Originally it was to be played June8/9th but was rained off due to flooded greens on the first day. Subsequently re arranged for July 27/28 the rain came down again, this time players were soaked on both days causing the game to be reduced to 27 holes.
Players stuck with their task and despite the conditions the results of the winners were impressive.
Our Club Champion 2019 ( Clover Cup) is once again Grace Eastment with a gross score of 124. If you look closely at the photo below you'll see from the honours board that Grace has been our champion for 18 of the past 21 years... what an achievement!
Runner up for 2019 was Ann Martin with 132. Congratulations to them both.
Winner of the Rowlinson Lady Trophy for the best nett score was Maria Craven with nett 109, with Ann as runner -up with nett 112.
Winner of the Carrington Bowl ( best score on the Sunday or the following Wednesday ... which we did manage to play on the original dates) was our captain Bridget Hendry, with a nett 70. well done Bridget.
