On a beautiful warm early Autumn day 60 ladies from 19 different clubs played in the Autumn Bowmaker on Wednesday at Mannings Heath. One of our last events of the season, it has become a very popular format – teams of three, best two stableford scores to count.
Thank you to the club for hosting the event, Lady Captain Lesley-Anne Collins-Powell and the ball spotters strategically placed on the five most difficult holes!
The highlight of the day was a Hole in One for Poo Adam (Lady Captain at Royal Ashdown Forest) who decided that the long carry of the 5th Punchbowl merited her driver. As she walked to the green wondering where her ball had gone, team mates Jan Hobden and Julia Thompson were delighted to find her ball in the hole!
