Summer Meeting & Vets 2021

The Summer Meeting took place at Rufford Golf and Country Club on Monday the 5th of July. The weather gods smiled on us and for the most part the competitors had a dry round. Rufford is an attractive parkland course with challenging greens which are quite large and strategically placed bunkers, the course draws you in like a wolf in sheep’s clothing – looks lovely but is difficult or maybe it’s just me! Of note is the signature par 3 17th hole over the water, a daunting tee shot for most of us.

However, this did not stop some extremely good scores being posted. Congratulations go to the winners: The Summer meeting Scratch - Jubilee Bowl was won by Caron Harrison of Sherwood Forest with a score of 76 gross and the Summer meeting Nett - Jubilee Bowl by Lesley Morris of The Nottinghamshire with a score 68. The Vet’s meeting Scratch - Gill Shawcross Trophy also went to Caron Harrison, 76 gross and the Vet’s meeting Nett - Challenge Cup to Lesley Morris, nett 68. The Dorothy Payne Trophy for 70+ was won by Carol Bowles of Ruddington Grange with 32 points.

Once again there was much hard work behind the scenes and thanks must go to Rosemary Lockwood and Sue Robinson for manning the desk all day and administering the competition. Many thanks also go to Rufford for presenting the course in such good order and hosting us for the day. Full results are available for downoad here.
