LADIES OPEN - MAY 12th 2015
Tuesday was a bright but rather blustery day which made the golf challenging at times but didn't put off the 164 Ladies who took part in this year's Ladies Open. There was a fantastic atmosphere all day from 7.30am to 8.30 pm with the shop, reception and clubhouse, as well as the course, buzzing with Ladies from all over the region. Twenty-eight different Clubs were represented, Ladies travelling from Nottinghamshire, Lincolnshire, Leicestershire, Staffordshire, Cambridgeshire, and South Yorkshire clubs - far too many to name individually. The scores were very close with several placings having to be decided on countback. The 7 leading teams tee times spread relatively evenly through from the 8.50am team (5th) from Boston to 14.40pm team (6th) from Burghley and NenePark. The winners from Woodhall Spa and Kenwick Park set off at 14.30pm and came in with a score of 82, beating the leaders in the clubhouse from Spalding and Woodhall Spa (who'd held the lead for one and a half hours), by just 1 shot.

My thanks to all those Newark Ladies and some Gents, who helped with Reception, on the Course, in the Halfway House and Shop, with the scores and Results, not to mention the Catering and Bar staff, all of whom ensured that the day ran smoothly.
