This was the first time this event has been staged, and it was decided, by a narrow majority to make it a handicap competition. The format proved excellent for attracting some higher handicap players. Substitutes were allowed, and Reigate were pleased they could give each team member a break during the day, but it also meant there would have been no problems should someone have become unavailable at the last minute. The overall winners were Sydenham.
Reigate team – Sally , Sue, Lorna and Judy (plus Freda as substitute) came 2nd, with Cheam 3rd. A very fine lunch was provided by the gentlemen of Southwick (gentlemen of Reigate, please note!).
It is intended that the Ladies’ GC Day will now become an annual event.
