Coronation Cups 2018

The Coronation Cups 4 ball better ball competition was held at Newark Golf Club on Monday 4th June with over 90 ladies taking part this year, representing 17 clubs from across the County. We received a warm welcome from the Lady Captain Josie Wake along with two willing gentlemen starters. The weather for the day was overcast, nothing like the recent sunny weather, with many ladies pulling on waterproofs and jumpers to keep out the chill breeze.

Nevertheless some excellent golf was played with great scoring, the winners being Lynne Inman & Claire Wilson from Norwood Park with 46 points, on countback from Pam Hayes & Aileen Kynoch (The Nottinghamshire) in second place. In third with 41 points were Bernie Barton & Alison Harold also from The Nottinghamshire, again on countback from Rina Ozolins & Alison Hartley, both from Newark. Rina was following on from her recent win in the NUGC mixed 4 ball better ball.

The Coronation Cups will be presented to the winners at the County AGM in November. Many thanks to all at Newark Golf Club for hosting the competition and for their support of NCLGA. Thanks also to Julia Warrener for organising the competition and running the day so efficiently.
