ROBIN HOOD PAIR WIN FIRST ALLIANCE
The first of this season's Alliances was played at Wishaw Golf Club on Sunday November 5th. 19 Warwickshire clubs were represented and while many of us drove to the venue under skies filled with rainbows, the breeze blew away the rain and we were left with a chilly, but bright, early winter's day.
The greens were challenging and the water features tricky but all the ladies appear to have enjoyed themselves during the day with friendly banter and a few good laughs. Not least at the County Captain, Margaret SHEEPY in her penultimate duty of office, requesting that the bell on the 11th be removed - having hit it and ricochetted into the ditch (her ball that is!)
An excellent score of 36 points saw the Robin Hood pairing of Louis SHARP and Jennifer ARCHIBALD taking the overall win, with Julia NEWMAN and Beverley GRIMSHAW of The Warwickshire pipping Atherstone to second over the back 9, with 33 points.
£47 was raised through the Ball Sweep on the day which will go towards the County Juniors
The next Winter Alliance will be at Moor Hall on Monday December 4th
