Keeping abreast of what is happening in the ‘Ladies’ world of golf can be tough – the sporting world, tends to be geared towards men. Here, we shout back, keep you up-to-date with the latest news among the Ladies section of Walton Hall Golf Club and give tips and information on other golfing gossip relevant to women.

NEW SEASON WELL UNDERWAY …
With six competitions now under our belt, the season is off to a good start with the course – particularly the greens – improving by the week. While the Fixtures List states the winners of each competition, a word here about the runners-up. 13th May saw new member Jackie Smith (currently Lady Vice Captain at Poulton Park Golf Cup) come second in the Ladies Challenge Cup. Meanwhile, Marjorie Cross posted her best score ever at Walton, coming second on 6th May in the battle for the WBC Leisure Trophy with a net 76, just being pipped to the winning slot by Helen Johnson who posted a net 75.
But the real heroine of the six competitions to date is Marie Sims who has so far notched up FIVE placings: 1 first, 2 second and 2 third. Well done Marie!!!

MEDAL WINNERS COMPETITION & STABLEFORD
Saturday 24th September brought more fine weather and the opportunity to run two competitions: the Medal Winners Competition for all those who had won medals during the course of the season and a Stableford Competition for those who had not. Lil King and Helen Johnson maintained their winning streak, with Helen Johnson winning this time (gross 92, net 81) and Lil coming a close second. In the Stableford Competition Debbie Walker picked up her first win of the season with 30 points, and Debbie Hall came second with 28 points.

TRANTER TROPHY & PUTTING COMPETITION
More fine weather for the Walton Ladies so it was possible to complete the competition for the Tranter Trophy which had been abandoned earlier in the season due to torrential rain. Winner this year was Lil King with 31 points (shown left), with Helen Johnson coming second with 30 points. It was a double-whammy for Lil this year, for she also won the Putting Competition

BRIDGEWATER ROSEBOWL & MEDAL 11
Finally some good weather! And excellent course conditions! All combining to give some terrific scores. Jill Hopwood (shown left) won – so keeps the trophy – with a gross 85 (net 71) and Carol Chadwick came second with a score that would normally have won, with a gross 82 (net 73). Let’s hope the same standard continues for the remainder of the season.

JEAN WARBURTON TROPY & MEDAL 10
Something of a gap in updates but summer holidays and inclement weather have resulted in a major re-scheduling of competitions, so well done to those who braved the weather on 2nd September when the rains commenced tumbling down on the second hole, got heavier thereafter, and left all players drenched by the 18th. The winner was Jill Hopwood with a gross 95 (net 81), with Carol Chadwick coming second with a gross 91 (net 82). The competition on 10th September is for the Bridgewater Rosebowl. Jill won this last year, so can she maintain her winning streak and keep the title?
