Nene Park Ladies held a Three-Ball Alliance competition at Orton Meadows last week which raised over £300 for the lady captains charity, the Stroke Association. Pictured is the winning team with lady captain Jocelyn Faris. From the left are Barbara Bird, Barbara Newell, Jocelyn Faris and Rebecca Core.

Greetham Valley’s Ellie Haughton was third with 76-5=71.

The gross prize went to Esme Hamilton from Notts Ladies Golf Club with 75 and Haughton finished runner-up with her 76.

In the nine-hole competition, Peterborough Milton’s Emily Grace Horsted was first with 20 points. And that was a great effort by the 12 year-old seeing as she’s only been playing seriously for the last year and only got her official handicap a couple of months ago.
