WHAT a difference a week makes.
Farmers and golfers alike were crying out for rain last week and our prayers were answered.
However, to have the skies open up on the lady golfers, as they did last Thursday complete with thunder and lightning, was not quite expected.
Casual water was an understatement and there was no way out but to wade through it and soldier on.
But to have your ball float back to you on the greens after putting was too much for some.
Several ladies pulled out and those that battled on had varying results in their games.
It was a case of “She who dares wins” must have been the motto for one player, Margery Stevens, who won with an excellent score of 40 points on such a dismal day.
Runner-up with 35 points was Teresa MacPherson.
The limit marker was Aileen Jones with 28 points.
Nearest the pin No 2 Teresa MacPherson, No 5 Jane Wilson, No 12 Jo DiLoreto and No 15 Fiona Buswell.
Best third shot No. 4 Fiona Buswell, closest chip No 6 Aileen Jones and best second shot No 17 Shirley Pascoe.
Long putt No, 9 Shirley Pascoe and No 18 Kathie Meldrum.
Handicap break to Margery Stevens 26-25.
The day was sponsored by Sandra and Jim Armstrong.
