NEW lady captain Lynda Hunter drove into office at Wilpshire Golf Club recently on a glorious spring day.

Nine teams entered for a nine-hole stableford competition, where two out of three scores counted on each hole.

The winners were Jane Plum, Glenda Astley and Joyce Newton with 38 points, ahead of runners-up Alison Bainbridge, Doreen Tattersal and Hilary Lyles with 34.

• TEXAS came to Langho on Sunday when Mytton Fold Golf Club held their Texas Scramble as their final event over the 16-hole winter course.

Captain-elect Peter Main was true to the Texas roots of the competition and carried out the fastest draw in the west, resulting in several teams being drawn out in the wilds.

The shotgun start was again in accordance with the American theme and wagons rolled at 10-30 a.m.

When wagons circled not long after High Noon, it was the trio of Abbie Clegg, Gary Aldred and the masked Richard Greaves who had massacred the field with a net score or 49.46, over a full point clear of second-placed Martin Holden, Peter Main and Paul Conchie.

Third in the results shoot out were the team of Allison Nuttall, Steve Rusyn and Nigel Fairhurst.

The Civil War Battle of Langho war re-enacted on Saturday when the playoff final for the Winter Mixed Pairs was held.

The leading pairs of the two winter leagues met to decide the overall champions.

A healthy battle was promised as Hazel Sellars and Frank Havard were drawn against the ‘league of death’ winners Jean Havard and Chris Hughes.

After 16 holes there was no blood on the fairways or greens, but Hazel and Frank remained unscathed (well, Hazel at least) and took the win.
