The Observer Ladies’ Final was played at Rishton Golf Club on Sunday 20th September.
The Knock-out Competition which started in April is played between 7 local Golf Clubs and Mrs Sally Blenkinship (Whalley) and Mrs Pat Caple (Accrington) were the Finalists.
The first 9 holes were very close and both ladies played excellent golf but the eventual winner was Mrs Pat Caple. As Runner-up Sally won the Mabel Stone Trophy and a voucher from Marks & Spencers. Mrs Hazel Sellers (Whalley) was one of the losing Semi-Fianlists and Hazel and her partner Mrs Jean Havard were 2nd in the Subsidiary Competition.
9 Whalley Ladies entered the Competition at the beginning of the season – Sally Blenkinship, Margaret Calvert, Janet Halfpenny, Ann Hudson, Allison Nuttall, Linda Rhodes, Hazel Sellers, Karen Thompson and Joan Whittaker. Many thanks to those ladies representing Whalley Golf Club, hopefully more Lady members will enter next year.
Congratulations to Sally and the rest of the “Girls”.
