Broome Park Ladies Open
16th June 2014
After a 2 year lapse, the ladies of Broome Park Golf Club successfully staged their Ladies Open again this year. 17 teams participated drawn from clubs as far away as Moor Park in Hertfordshire.
The teams of three competed in a Texas Scramble, with nearest the pin on the 2nd won by Finola Paul – Chestfield and the straightest drive on the 16th won by Nikki Brown from Sittingbourne. Scores for the Texas Scramble were very close. The winners from Eltham Warren carded a net 64 with runners up from Chestfield Golf Club on 65. Third place went to another team from Chestfield with a net 68 which was won on countback from St. Augustines.
Although the weather was a little damp to start with, it didn’t dampen the enjoyment of the whole day. After a two course lunch held in the Mansion House, the raffle which was held for the Lady Captain’s charity was drawn. The total proceeds of £230 going to the ‘The East Kent Pilgrims Hospice’. Prize giving followed with the lucky winners going home with a wonderful variety of picnic hampers, picnic mats, cooler boxes and chairs.
A memorable day which the organisers hope to repeat again next year.
