Herts County Ladies G.A. & Patt Ladd’s hole in one…

Rickmansworth Ladies entered two teams for the Herts County Ladies G.A. 9 Hole Competition at Chorleywood Golf Club. There were twenty teams of three from golf clubs around Hertfordshire from both private and public clubs.

The weather was hot and sunny and we were fortunate our two teams were off first which avoided any delays. The course was in good condition but the rough was ROUGH and the fairways narrow so no way was it an easy 9 holes.

Great excitement on the 3rd Pat Ladd got a hole in one. As the drive was over gorse and bracken we did not actually see the ball go into the hole just heard the ball spotter clapping. Pat gave a generous donation to the Chorleywood Captain’s Charity and received a small token as a reminder of a brilliant shot.

Our team of Pat Ladd, Joan McLaughlin and June Poppleton had equal points with the 3rd place winners but lost on count back. We were delighted with this result. Sherril Bryden, Allison Knowles and Ann Loughman also had a very good game.

The day ended with afternoon tea and prize giving to the background of Andy Murray going out of Wimbledon!
