Despite poor weather conditions at Ross Golf Club, only one of the Ladies Competitions in January had to be cancelled. The course, although muddy, has remained open throughout the winter and the work carried out over the past two years putting in extra drainage on the greens, has paid off, as there was not a temporary green in sight. A real credit to the greens staff who work tirelessly to keep the course playable.
The first competition of the new year saw 49 ladies competing in a nine hole Texas Scramble on January 7th. The winners on the front nine were Nadia Stirling, Ellie Teasdale and Ruth Kirchmeier with 29.5. The winners on the back nine were Christine Baldwin, Amanda Marshall and Sally Fycun with 29.8.
On January 21st, 46 ladies swapped muddy conditions for a welcome frosty sunny day to play in a nine hole Greensomes competition. In first place were Pat Johnson and Diane Martin with 19 points, closely followed in second place by Dinah Johson and Lois Price with 17 points. On January 28th, 42 ladies played in a nine hole Four Ball Better Ball competition. Pat Johnson and Lois Price were in joint first place with Ruth Kirchmeier and Nadia Stirling, both pairs scoring 19 points. Erika Atkins and Sheila Curtis shared joint third place with Amanda Marshall and Linda McCoy, and Sally Fycun and Ellie Teasdale who all scored 18 points.
On a brighter note, the snowdrops are out, the days are gradually lengthening and it won’t be long before the daffodils will be lining the fairways again.
