WALMLEY LADIES WIN FEBRUARY ALLIANCE
Virtually a full house of 22 clubs played in the February Alliance at Stonebridge Golf Club on Wednesday 7th. A beautiful clear day, blue skies but barely above freezing - thankfully the breeze was relatively mild.
The first few teams had to put up with some interesting bounces before the frost finally melted, but then the later pairs found it getting colder as the afternoon wore on.
A few teams were penalised 2 shots for getting 'lost' and playing the wrong hole - a lesson for all of us to be aware of which tee we are playing off..... following a team is not foolproof neither is teeing off just because everyone else has!
Anyway there were some very good scores and as often happens it was the last pairing that set the cat among the pidgeons once again - however they didn't quite make it loosing out on the back 9 to the pair who had been patiently waiting in the club house.
Winners: Jen LAVERY & Joanne BOYES of Walmley GC - 39 points (Pictured L to R with County President Caroline LASSEN)
Runners up: Margaret MANDER and Julie BAKER of Forest of Arden G & CC - 39 points (Pictured L to R with County President Caroline LASSEN)
