NEWTON Green Golf Club Ladies Section held its AGM. Before the meeting outgoing captain, Carolyn Cocksedge, presented a cheque to Autism Anglia Trustee Gill Norton for �864, monies raised during her year. Lady members have also held a Pink Day which raised �178 for the Breast Cancer Campaign Golf Club Challenge.

Pat Walsh was elected as ladies' captain for the coming year and her chosen charity is St Nicholas Hospice. Jill Symonds was elected vice-captain. The golfer of the year trophy was presented to Glenys Grove and Debbie Howlett who tied for the honour. The section also presented a trophy for the most improved high handicap player to junior member Alice Barlow.

The next morning spirits were not dampened by the weather when Pat Walsh held her captain's drive in. Lady members dressed in their best bling, looking ready for a trip to Ladies' Day at Newmarket rather than the golf course.

Winners of the Better Ball competition were Jennie Leech and Dorothy Rattray Allan, 26pts; Cynthia Chapman and Sue Lockwood, 25 pts; Glenys Grove and Janet Sparks, 24 pts. Nearest the pin was won by Debbie Howlett. Susan Sills guessed the length of the captain's drive of 102 yds.
