Rosemary Farrow takes top spot at veterans’ competition in Haverhill

THE East Region Ladies Golf Championship was held at Haverhill at the weekend and Rosemary Farrow from St Neots Golf Club took the top spot in the senior veterans’ competition.

Despite the torrential rain which preceded the tournament, the greens were in good condition and provided a good challenge with little run on the ball.

The top prize went to Sue Lines-Poulton from Thorndon Park in Essex with a gross 81. Stowmarket’s Teresa Wardlow scooped the overall nett prize with a score of 73. Farrow secured her title with a nett 77 and Isobel McClean (Gogs) took first prize in the mid-veterans group with a nett 76. The Junior Veterans prize went to Haverhill’s Pat Kennedy with a nett 76. THE Cambs and Hunts ladies veterans’ team faced a strong Norfolk team in their annual match played at The Links in Newmarket but won 3-1.

Although the match started in the rain, weather conditions improved throughout the afternoon with a welcome sighting of the sun late on.

In the top match Rosemary Farrow (St Neots) and Rosemary Hay (Menzies) had a solid 3&2 win.

Menzies’ Grace Eastment and Geraldine Fleming (St Ives) had a comfortable 6&4 win and captain Liz Smith (Ely City) and Jenny Jarvis (Royston) clinched the match when they recorded a 5&4 win.

The final pairing of Glynis Anderson (Menzies) and Greta Barclay (Ely City) lost their match 1down.

MEMBERS of Ramsey Golf Club will be playing for the RAF Trophy on Saturday, August 4 – and are hoping for a Lancaster Bomber and Spitfire flypast to celebrate their big charity day.

The popular four ball better ball competition; which attracts the biggest field of entries of any of the club’s competitions, will be used to raise money for Help the Heores this year – and the The Battle of Britain Memorial Flight committee have agreed to the flypast from the two second world war aircraft, subject to aircraft availability and weather conditions.

The display line will be north north east to south south west, passing over the club house, roughly following Bury Brook, and exiting 600 yards beyond the B1040 at Bury. The flypast is due for 1pm and will last for just a minute.
