Both the nine-hole and 18-hole competitions were well attended even if skipper Gwenda Pocock and the rest of the field had to deal with strong winds as well as the rain.

They were still able to produce some excellent scores with the new fairway drainage installed earlier this year keeping the course in excellent condition.

The overall winner on the day, as well as the division one competition, was Eng Kessler. Division two was won by Maggie Nagle and division three by Jill Bainbridge.

June Douglas took the honours in the nine-hole competition.

A spokesman for the club said: "The ladies were all pleased to get back out of the rain after their golf and all sat down to an excellent lunch and award ceremony in the warm and dry of the clubhouse.

"We have already attracted a number of new lady members this year and we offer a wide variety of golfing opportunities including both internal competitions and ones against other clubs."
