Silver & Bronze Championships 2016 – King’s Lynn Golf Club – 16th June

DSC_8080Pippa Holliday reported that 99 ladies from 21 clubs throughout the county played in the competition: 45 in the Silver Division and 54 in the Bronze Division.  62 players entered the Gwen Watts Salver Over 65 competition which ran alongside the Championships.

Fortunately, threats of rain did not materialise and the competition was played in unbroken sunshine on a beautifully presented course. Pippa received tremendous support from King’s Lynn’s Lady President, Pat Simpson, Lady Captain, Maggie Clarkson, and their experienced team of officials. It is thanks to them that the day ran so smoothly. Thanks also to Molly Izzard, Chairman of the Vets Committee. Hospitality at King’s Lynn was of a high standard and lunch was well received by all players. All in all, a most enjoyable day for everyone.

After making a contribution to the Lady Captain’s charity, the raffle raised £203 for Norfolk Junior Girls.
