June 10 The Anniversary Competition
Chorley Golf Club SS 71 CSS 72 for both competitions.
The Anniversary Competition, celebrating 44 years of the Lancashire Girls' Golf Association was played in warm sunshine. There was a full field and we were pleased to welcome new players.
The long spell of dry weather made it difficult to stop the ball on the greens.
Emily James led the field and returned an excellent 76 gross that included the only 2 of the day when she eagled the 10th hole. Courtney Willis and Courtney Crolla had the best nett scores until the winners came in at the end when Liyana Laheri played the last 9 holes in level par to record a 69 nett.
Winner: Liyana Laheri 69 nett. Gross Prize: Emily James 76. 2nd Nett: Lucy Moss 70 nett. 3rd Nett: Melissa Ball 71 nett.
There were some excellent Stableford scores with 7 players scoring more than 36 points. Again it was the last player in who took first prize when Jenny Murphy scored 44 points.
Winner: Jenny Murphy 44 points. Second: Claudia Hastings 42 points.
April 22 The Spring Meeting.
The Spring Meeting was held at Formby Ladies' GC in typical April but rather cold conditions. There was a bumper entry and it was a pleasure to
welcome several girls to their first LGGA competition. The Friendship Cup, donated by some of the girls' fathers, was presented for the first time. The stroke play nett scores together with the Autumn Meeting scores go towards the Rose Bowl trophy. After the Spring Meeting Presentation Mrs Dinah Vaux, County Captain 2017 presented the winners of last year's LGGA competitions with their trophies.
