The course was in magnificent order, the greens were smooth and extremely fast which lead to fierce competition between over 85 competitors.

Lynne Brown finished just one point behing the winner and claimed top prize in Section B while Louise MacDonell took the gross prize. Julia Moore’s first place also earned her a trip to Massereene as winner of the Mary Peters Trust competition, which was run alongside the rescheduled Captain’s Day.

At the evening prize-giving, the Lady Captain Daphne Bailie welcomed the Lady President, Lady Vice Captain, Past Captains & Presidents and ladies.

“I enjoyed my first lady Captain’s day but I’m sorry it all turned out so wet and you all had to run from thunder and lightning,” she said. “Thank you to everyone for the gifts, cards and flowers which all made it really special for me. The Charity donations raised £538 which went to my chosen charity Diabetes UK.

Christine McCullough was the winner of Section A.
