34 Senior lady golfers took part in their annual County Championship event on Monday (8th October) at West Herts Golf Club, located in Croxley Green, on the outskirts of Watford. Unlike the Men's Seniors, who start Senior 'life' at 55, the Ladies' start at the tender age of 50.
48 hours prior on the Saturday had been one of the most miserable days of the year weather wise, wet cold and windy, so it was a pleasant surprise that the day was blessed with calm, benign and moderate temperatures.
Jackie Foster, fresh from representing England Seniors at the Home International matches played at Burnham & Berrow, Somerset, the previous week, returned the best gross score of the day with a steady round of gross 76 (+3) and would regain the trophy she last one in 2015.
Moira Sleeman of Sandy Lodge returned the best nett score on the day of 71 (-2) to win the Tatham Cup, while Rita Davidson also of Sandy Lodge won the Veteran's Trophy (for 65's and over) with best gross score of 83 (+10).
The CSS on the day was 73 against a par and SSS of 73.
West Herts were, as always, excellent hosts and a good day was had by all. Next year's event will be at Verulam GC in St. Albans and is scheduled for the corresponding date, Monday 7th October 2019.
