Whalley Ladies annual Open Turkey Shoot was held in extremely bitter and blustery conditions.

Once again the competition was well supported with a good turnout of ladies.

She hoped that all those taking part had enjoyed the day and the unique seasonal decor in the club house along with the excellent food , prepared and served by the in house catering staff .

The winning team was J. Crump , J. Owen and Y. Sanderson from Greenmount Golf Club with 36 points; second on a card-play off were J. Duckworth, P. Woodhouse and P. Caple with 35 from Accrington G.C. and third were A. Prior , K. Thompson and M. Bland of Whalley G.C. with 35 .
