With a prize table brimming with chocolates and flowers, it took more than wind and rain to dampen the enthusiasm of the ladies section of Leighton Buzzard golf club.
Over 30 of them turned out for a special pre-Easter competition, playing in groups of three with the best two scores counting at each hole.
And the spirit and enthusiasm paid off for Ladies Captain Oonagh Russell, Vice Captain Barbara Rickard and colleague Vicky Pratt when they carded 62 points to top the table by a single shot.
Runners-up with 61 points were Sandra Bellis, Norma Stevens-Hack and Joanna Cox, with Judith Harper, Jill Nutkins and Lesley Bednarek third with 56 points.
The best front nine was carded by Avril Simpson, Gill Chehade and Carmen White-Lawes with 29 points, with Anne Tilbury, Jill McDougall and Val Brown carding the best back nine total with 33 points.
Nick Tingey and Ian Farrant have qualified for Saturday’s Captain’s Cup final, carding 43 points to beat John Brawn and Eddie Edwards to complete the line-up.
