Toft Golf Club’s lady captain Sandra Wildmore was thrilled by the support shown to a fundraising Fourball Better Ball Stableford she held at the club.

Twenty-eight players supported the event and, following her strict instructions, were dressed in a flower power theme with prizes for best costume and extra points for not losing the pink ball each pair were gifted.

Toft ladies’ customary competitiveness produced outstanding totals for the top trio while a raffle raised £150 for The Bourne Butterfield Day Centre.

Results: 1st Helen Roscoe and Margaret Dair 45 points; 2nd Jean Parsons and Judith Childs 44c/b; 3rd Dianne Clayton and Maureen Paulson 44. Nearest the pin on 3rd - Karen Parsonage; Nearest the pin on 13th - Lisa Gauci (who also scored an eagle on the 14th). Nearest line on 12th - Helen Roscoe; Two’s competition - Pam Dickenson; Best Flowery Costume - Lorraine Robinson.

l Toft ladies away league match against Lincoln was a nail-biting contest won by the home team 3.5-.5 but three games could so nearly have gone the other way.

Although disappointed to have lost, team captain Mairead Scott was pleased that the team had done enough to stay in division one. The final league fixtures, pitting Toft against Spalding, and Lincoln against Stoke Rochford will determine which club will progress to the finals.

Results: Mairead Scott and Cathy Lee halved; Lorraine Robinson and Mandy Lees lost on the last hole; Helen Roscoe and Judith Childs lost 4&3; Margaret Dair and Sandra Wildmore lost on last hole.

l The Rosemary Williams Rosebowl was won by Lorraine Robinson (86-15=71) with Sandra Wildmore (94-22=72) second on countback, ahead of Hayley Hunt (91-19=72)

The President’s Putter competition was won by Alison Ravenhill on 43 points.
