This week 19 ladies took part in the competition for the Moore Cup, writes Andrea Milton.

The Moore Cup was given to the ladies section by former club member Mrs Moore and is played as a stroke play competition.

This is combined with a medal competition on the same day. After recent rain the course was very wet underfoot but the day was mostly dry with a light breeze.

The winner of the Moore Cup, and medal 12, was Ros Eaton, with a nett 66.

With a great par on the eighth, another on the 12th, plus a birdie two on 11, she was well on her way.
