Much to the relief of Colne’s Lady Captain Pamela O’Connor, the weather stayed fine for the ladies to enjoy her day.

Janet Ferguson reduced her handicap by three shots with a great round of 101-30-71 to win the event, with Freda Lester four shots behind (96-21-75), pipping Carol Robinson’s 105-29-76 into third place.

Nearest the line on the 3rd was won by Ann Waddington, and on the 5th Stella Kitson, with Linda Ryder nearest the pin in two on the 18th. A surprise prize for lowest nett for 30-36 handicappers was won by Enid Duerden.

Joan Finley won the Stableford competition on a card play-off from Anne Black, with both ladies scoring 37 points. Eva Pinder took third place two shots behind.

Colne Ladies’ Bronze team, represented by Bronze Team captain Anne Graham, Stella Kitson, Linda Ryder, Eileen Foulds and Carol Robinson, qualified for the East Division final, to be played at Lytham Green against Pleasington, when they beat Walmsley 4-1 at Bury Golf Club.
