The Ladies were treated to a glass of Pimms when they returned to the clubhouse on Tuesday 27th August, courtesy of Barbara Graham’s hole in one on the 15th. This feat boosted Barbara’s score to 37 points but it was not enough to elevate her into the prizes on a day when scoring was exceptional.

The final of the Presidents Cup took place on Thursday 29th August in good playing conditions. Kath Biddle and Meg Godfrey were the two players contesting the final of this premier scratch match play competition. As expected, both players produced some high quality golf and Kath took a two holes lead in to the back nine. Meg made a fine birdie on the tenth to narrow the gap but Kath then won three holes out of the next five to become the 2013 scratch match play champion.
