Springing into action at Park

BURGHLEY Park Golf Club Ladies’ captain Jan Devlin held her first competition of the year – Spring is in the Air – on Tuesday.

She had planned to hold the competition over two days, with an 18 hole competition on Sunday and both 18 and 9 hole competitions on Tuesday but Sunday’s weather forced a change of plans.

Sunday’s golf was cancelled but on Tuesday 54 ladies enjoyed a fun game of golf (organised by Elspeth Irvine and Jan Devlin) in near perfect golfing conditions.

The 9 hole competition was won by the team of Dorothy Pridmore, Eileen Smith and Barbara Allen with 40 points.

They were closely followed by runners-up Kay Parker, Judy Holt and Ann White on 39 points.

Winners of the 18 hole competition were Chris Clarke, Chris Wright and Wendy Higgs with an impressive 83 points and runners-up were Penny Campbell, Karen Stroud and Anne Hughes with 76 points on countback.
