Ladies Double C Cup Draw
The draw for the Ladies Double C Cup has been made. Check the draw sheet for match-ups and, most importantly, play-by dates for each round.
Scoring for the April Monthly Medal reflected the conditions which were cloudy and damp underfoot so the going was soft and the balls weren’t running. The winner was Lia Donath with a net 74 and the runner-up was Harriet Carr with a net 75.
The CSS increased by 3 to 74 and this was a reduction only round for handicap purposes.
Also, there was one result in the Ladies Singles Challenge Cup – Alison beat Inge in a first round match.
Despite early damp conditions Martin Pirie struck form with some very steady and accurate golf to win the April Medal with a net 64, 4 ahead of John Morris with a fine 65. One further behind were Nigel Marsh and Julian Ratnage.
CSS was one less than SSS at 69. Men’s handicap list…
