The Ladies’ Club Championship
Royston Ladies competed in their annual Club Championship Competition over the weekend, playing 36 holes in glorious weather over the 2 days for the Championship Trophy and the Bronze Trophy [dependent on handicap]. Whilst it was very challenging, it was also wonderful to see some of our new members participating and enjoying getting involved in the event.
Following the competition the ladies were treated to cake, biscuits and Prosecco, which was kindly donated by our Chef Julie and the Lady Captain Sue Bidwell - who sadly had to pull out after the First Round.
Our overnight leaders, Tracey Parsons and Chris Dewhurst, were both unable to retain their lead into the final round.
