Royal Lytham & St Annes Golf Club again allowed the Lancashire Girls' Family Greensomes to be played on their excellent 9 hole Short Course. A full field of girls with dads, mothers, brothers etc as their partners played some excellent golf to produce some amazingly low scores on a pleasant October day. Liyana and Imtiaz Laheri (Pleasington) were the winners with Grange Park's Melissa and Stephen Ball finishing in second place.
This is the last event on the junior calendar for 2017. A 'Thank you' Presentation was made to CJO Sue Griffiths for her organisation of junior events during the year and to Liz Robinson who is finishing as Hart Common Organiser after many years. She will become LLCGA Vice Captain in 2018 and County Captain the following year.
We look forward to seeing you all again at our training sessions and again at our competitions in 2018. You can access them on the Junior Calendar that will be updated regularly.
