Rushmore Ladies scoop Wiltshire Handicap Cup
RUSHMORE Golf Club Ladies have won the Wiltshire Handicap Cup.
Team captain Georgette Purches guided the team through an incredibly difficult draw to take the title at Bowood Golf Club against a strong North Wilts Team.
The win was all the more remarkable because four of the five matches won were played away from home.
In the final Jo Woodget led the team off knowing she was giving five shots to her opponent.
In a closely contested game she lost on the 17th but this setback was quickly reversed as Jane Homer and Annie Noble won their matches to take a 2-1 lead.
The in-form Linda Lewis’ short game helped her to a win on 17 that gave the team victory.
Jaqui Pethen agreed to half the match with her opponent on 17 when the result became academic.
The victorious team are pictured above.
