Ladies Interclub Final 2017

Interclub17aThe final of the Ladies Interclub was held at Wollaton Park on 11th September between last year’s winners, Retford and Trent Lock. It was an extremely windy cold day with a few sharp downpours which made conditions very testing for both teams. Nevertheless, some excellent golf was played in a match which was very close right to the end.

The first match featured Jean Stones and Jan Peters for Trent Lock playing against Debbie Rose and Keran Hutchinson from Retford. The match was all square until the 17th where Retford found a very wet bunker off the tee and lost the hole to go one down. A half on the 18th resulted in a win for Trent Lock 1-up. The second match was played by Tracey Krupa and Billie Major from Trent Lock against Pat Fox and Belinda Briggs from Retford. A very solid putt on the 16th green took Retford to 3-up and the match finished with halves on 17 and 18 giving Retford an overall win for the day of 2-up.

Congratulations to both teams for making the final and for battling the elements at Wollaton in an exciting final. The Interclub Trophy returns to Retford for another year.

Our thanks go to Wollaton Park for hosting the final and for looking after us so well during the day. Thanks also to President Maureen Clarke and to Lyndsay Carruthers for refereeing and to past president Joan Underwood for acting as starter.
