DevonGolf Ladies‘ Silver Meeting -16th July 2018 at Yelverton Golf Club
It was a dry day with a bit of cloud cover and a little shower of dampness in the middle, which didn’t do much to improve the playing conditions! There was a packed field of 62 entrants with the first pairing from Yelverton teeing off at 8.45 and the last, from Torquay, at just after 12.30. An accident between Tavistock and Yelverton meant the road was blocked and diversions were in place, necessitating a little juggling with the tee timings, but all worked out in the end.
The field was divided into two divisions, +-13 and 14-20. We soon realised there were some decent scores being recorded despite the very dry conditions, the best of the day being Keeley Clarke (0), from Torquay, the defending holder of the Stella Temple Memorial Cup. By 5pm all were back in the clubhouse and we were able to hold prize giving at 5.30pm. Unfortunately Yelverton’ Lady Captain, who had volunteered to play at the last minute when an entrant had withdrawn through injury, was injured herself and unable to be at the presentation. However, our County Captain, Chris Longden, stepped into the fray and warmlywelcomed everyone to Yelverton Golf Club before presenting the prizes. Her Captain’s Prize, for the best nett score on 6 selected hidden holes, was won by Charlotte Dommett (Torquay).
There were 3 Two’s: 6th – Lesley Pascoe (Stover), Alison West (Portmore), 12th and Denise Ann Evans (RND).
