June 2009 The Bournemouth Open Championship had good support from the Ladies but we did not do as well this year. Keith and Pauline beat Jill and Steve on countback for 5th place in the Mixed Greensomes. Stacey andf Julie were 2nd in the Ladies Greensomes. Sheila and Mick were 4th in the Mixed Foursomes.
Tuesday 23 September 2008The Low Bronze County Autumn Meeting was postponed to this date due to heavy rain. Pauline and Lesley entered with Pauline gaining 2nd best nett.
Thursday 11 September 2008 Pam and Sheila went to .... for the regional final of the Ping competition. Alas their 33 points did not bring them into the prizes.
Wednesday 10 September 2008 Stacey and Lin went to play at Petersfield in the Desert Springs Classic trying to get through to the final in Spain. Alas their 30 points were not enough.
Monday 8 September 2008 The Silver County Autumn Meeting was held at Lyme Regis Golf Club with an entry of over 80. Cheryl and Roz entered. The weather was warm but rather windy so high up on this cliff top golf course which made conditions difficult and sent the CSS up to 74. Unfortunately Roz had a nightmare on the second hole and !!!!!! The two winners came in with nett 70 scores and Cheryl had a nett 71 so was third but as you can only win one prize Cheryl was awarded 2nd best nett. We both enjoyed the day and the company of our playing partners.
Sunday 31 August 2008Roz and Mike won the best front 9 with 22 Stableford points and came 4th overall in the Centenary Mixed Open at Stoneham Golf Club.
