Twenty-four ladies with “blood line” grandchildren competed in the “Grannies Salver” event won by Sylvia Dell with an impressive nett 66 four years after the birth of the first of her four grandchildren, though she is step-grandmother to ten others.

Sylvia is pictured receiving the Salver from Ladies Vice Captain Oonagh Russell, who was runner-up with a nett 73, a shot clear of Rosalind Miles.

A competition for non-grannies was won by Stephanie Howlett, pipping Carolyn Chamberlain on countback after both finished with nett 78, a shot clear of Michelle Plummer, while a nine-hole competition was won by Jane Parry with 23 points, three clear of Val J Smith and Virginia Gillett.
