Fifty six Lady members competed for the MacMillan Charity Stableford Competition on the 4 th May. The course was in magnificent condition for the annual competition which was again sponsored by Vincent Mone and Son who have been associated with the charity for many years. Scores on the day ranged from the excellent to the instantly forgettable but those who did not feature among the prizes had the consolation of playing in brilliant sunshine.

Ann Mone, on behalf of the sponsors organised the display of a wide array of stunning Rose Gold Tipperary Crystal jewellery which she presented to the grateful prize-winners at an evening function in a packed clubhouse.

Ann expressed delight in her speech, that so many of the prizes went, on the day, to her close friends. A full list of category prize-winners is set out below but the top places were contested between Sheila Hughes in third place with 37 points, Ann McElroy in second on 39 and the ever popular June Humphries who secured top spot with a magnificent 40 points. Both Ann and June received a one shot handicap cut for their efforts.
