On a somewhat miserable May Bank Holiday Monday with wet and windy conditions (what a surprise!), Greetham Valley’s Ladies took to the Lakes course to compete in the first qualifying round of the Peugeot Coronation Foursomes. This is a competition where you have to really trust your partner and not get upset if they inadvertently put you in a bunker or behind a tree for your shot. The conditions really affected the scoring, fortunately Greetham Valley is a very quick draining course and doesn’t hold the water like some but the constant rain took it’s toll.
Former Ladies’ President Beryl Crosland and her partner Rena Lister took the win with thirty three points. Kay Ropson and Liz Taylor were second with thirty points and Val Guy and Valda Austin were third with twenty eight.
Beryl and Rena will now go forward to the next round at Spalding Golf Club when they hope for much bettter weather.
The Ladies’ League team have got off to a fine start to the year under team captain Annie McCulloch, winning their first match against Spalding by four games to nil. At the weekend they played their second game in quite rough weather conditions against Belton Woods and won by three and a half to a half. They will play Belton Woods away on May 20th when they hope to keep up their winning ways to push for a climb up the Lincolnshire League.
Sophie Beardsall and Emma Tipping took part in the County Championships recently; Sophie lost in the quarter finals but they are both delighted to have been selected for the Lincolnshire County Team for County Week in June.
