Jane and Belinda win captains' day
JANE Lowton and Belinda Stow won Gill Cronin’s Ladies Captains’ Day at Rushmore Golf Club recently, despite being robbed of their third member by a last minute withdrawal.
Jane Homer, Anne Pettigrew and Val Turner took second place in the bowmaker format, with proceeds going to Wheels for the World, who provide refurbished wheelchairs to underdeveloped countries. Cronin has raised £1,500 so far this year.
Individual prize winners were Dianna Foster-Williams and Homer, with Estelle Wickwar winning the chipping and putting competition.
A well-attended Rushmore Mixed Open saw a win for local pair Beryl Griffiths and Mark Stranger who took the first prize with a score of 35 points. In second place were Claire Bird and Jeff Evans from Ashley Wood, beating Canford’s Pamela Cutler and Richard Avery by a single point.
The winners paid tribute to Jaime Acton and his new green keeping team who have made substantial improvements to the course over the summer.
