Wintry conditions reduce fields

The ladies field was reduced to 12 last Wednesday when they ventured out on the Attamurra course to play a stableford competition.

The fairways were fairly heavy from the downfalls the previous day and putting was challenging.

Long hitter, Helen McIntyre had all aspect of her game under control to claim the winner’s prize with 38 points, two shots under her handicap, in heavy conditions was no mean feat.

Her game was steady recording 19 points on each nine which also included birdies on the par three holes, the 8 th and 10 th .

Runner up was keen golfer, Vicki Clark with a sound score of 34 points from Janina Morrison with 33 points.

Di O’Donnell was the only ball rundown winner who finished one shot further back with 32 points, while the accurate one, Faye Mainwaring again claimed the pro shot on the downhill par three 8 th hole.

Vicki Clark, who is gradually reducing her handicap scored the prize for the best front nine with 20 points.
