Carol Redpath cruised past the rest of the field to take top prize in the biggest day of the Dunmurry Ladies’ calendar.
It was Fionnuala McGrady’s Lady Captain’s Day, which was thoroughly enjoyed by over 80 competitors. Even a few showers couldn’t dampen the spirits with plenty of beautiful prizes to play for.
Carol won the best of those with four shots to spare after carding 41 points. That was well clear of runner-up Hilary Ferguson, who came in with 37 points.
The gross prize went to Elaine McConnell for her score of 21 gross points.
Lady Captain Fionnuala was kept busy, meeting and greeting the competitors while the refreshment tent at the ninth hole proved very popular with Joanne at hand to serve up tea, coffee and refreshing bubbly. This was much appreciated by all the golfers.
After the evening drinks reception, Lady Captain introduced her family and friends and explained how they had influenced her in her love of golf and the many friends she had made through the sport.
She thanked all the ladies for their support and also sent special praise to her committee, office staff, bar and catering staff, Justin and all the green staff, John and Matt in the pro shop and also to Anne Walby and her team for the beautiful flower arrangements throughout the club.
After the meal, Lady Captain, along with handicap secretary Margaret, announced the winners of her beautiful handbags and purses.
Accepting her prize, the winner Carol thanked the Lady Captain for the beautiful bag and her playing partners for their encouragement throughout the round. She also thanked the Lady Captain on behalf of all the prize-winners.
Throughout the evening, entertainment was provided by Finbar from Newcastle.
This lively music got the ladies to the dance floor for even more exercise!
