St Austell Ladies Golf Section
We have a very strong Ladies Section at St.Austell. The Ladies have their own committee responsible for running all aspects of ladies’ golf. The Ladies have a representative on the Club’s Management Committee.
The ladies have a full programme of competitions throughout the year, in addition to league matches, friendly and vets matches and play for several trophies.
Our League programme came to an end on Monday with a home victory over West Cornwall which maintained our 100% record on our own links.
Unfortunately, our away form has not been good enough so overall we have been unable to challenge for promotion but have maintained a solid mid table position. On the day we welcomed new member Julie Hutton into the team but, despite receiving 7 shots, she was unable to overcome her opponent but Sue and long time member Jackie, making her first start of the season, soon gave us the lead with 5&4 and 2&1 victories respectively.
The Shilson Bowl was presented in 1920 by Mrs Shilson for a singles matchplay knockout tournament. The winner this year was Lucy Lund beating Liz Murphy in the final, having previously played Caryl Gould & Sylvia Rawle.
The Claret Cup ( a large glass jug) was presented by Gill Harper in 1993 for a Foursomes Matchplay Competition. This years winners were Sue Batchelor and Wendy Huxtable beating some other strong pairings of Annie & Lucy Lund in the final, Tracey Peers & Jane White in the Semi Final, and earlier Jackie Nile and Trudy Metherell, Wendy Edwards and Rosemary Mitchell. Well done.
