Th e ladies’ field was split on Tuesday with the main contingent traveling to Belmont in Grahamstown to play against the Belmont ladies in the annual “picture match”.The format was a better-ball matchplay and won by the Belmont team 7-5. So the “picture” will once again adorn the walls in the Belmont clubhouse for the following year.

The balance of the ladies section played a 2-to-count Stableford alliance in 3-balls in Port Alfred. The afternoon was warm to hot at first but subjected to very strong breezes.

Sandy Fryer, Donné Piguet and Sue Roll carded a winning 79 points to edge Jenny Adair, Elfie Krummery and Margie Reid into the runners-up slot on a count-out.

There were no 2-clubs.

Kim Gardner’s drive was closest to the pin for two on Top Carpets’ 6th as was Bridget McNelis’ on Rosehill Driving Range’s 8th. Nobody hit the green on Wimpy’s 11th and it was once again Kim Gardner who was closest to the pin “for two” on Kekkel and Kraai’s 13th.

The longest drive competition was held on the 2nd fairway and struck by Donné Piguet.

The competition on the 19th November will be an Individual Stableford sponsored by Viv Jordan.
