Simdouth ladies show stoicism in the rain
Nineteen players ventured out on to the course on Wednesday to contest the Moore Cup.
Nineteen players ventured out on to the course on Wednesday to contest the Moore Cup, despite MET office forecasts of seriously wet weather- and they were right.
At least four of those intrepid ladies came back to shelter in the clubhouse after just a few holes, but others completed the round although there were another five 'no returns'. Those who did complete the full round must be congratulated on their stoicism!
CSS went up to 72 and there were no 2s, so another roll-over. The seventh proved to be the highest over par at three per cent over and the 11th had the best scores of the day.
Played as a Medal competition it also included the EWGA Medal, Gertie Skinner qualifier, Eclectic and putting.
