Dartmouth Golf Club

Ladies’ section

It has been a very busy golfing ­period for the ladies of Dartmouth Golf Club.

The team comprising Lorna Elliott, Geraldine Sedgebeer, Alison White and Jan Cousins recently played at Stover for the Western Morning News Rosebowl, finishing the competition in third place.

The league team travelled to Dawlish Warren, meanwhile, and played in what it seemed the most barren golf course on the planet. That did not deter them, though, with the team winning to give them a secure place in the semi-finals, which will be played in September.

The regular Tuesday spot saw nine ladies competing for the Neasham and the new White Salver – and you could not have asked for a more ­perfect day to play golf.

The winner in the silver division was Marilyn Lucas (16) on 35 points; second, after having her handicap cut by three shots in recent weeks, was Tina Scanlan (13) on 34 points.

The winner of the Neasham Salver this year was Jenny Wiltshire (29) with 34 points.

The ladies were out there again on Thursday playing a friendly match against Bovey Tracy. Perhaps too much golf had been played for one week, with Dartmouth losing four matches, with the team of Chris ‘I can putt now’ Mayer and Tina Scanlan being Dartmouth’s only winners.
