Sunday 6th May – Juby CupOn a glorious sun drenched Sunday this week, the ladies of Bury St Edmunds Golf Club welcomed the start of their golfing year. Over 60 ladies took part in the annual Juby Cup, an individual stableford competition. This early May competition is a significant date in the ladies golfing calendar so is often well supported.
The competition was won by the defending champion, Clare Charlwood with an impressive 39 points. Starting on the 11th hole, Clare didn’t have the best of starts with only 3 points from the first 4 holes.
However, when the morning dew lifted and her swing got going Clare returned an impressive score of 25 stableford points on the first 9 holes of the course – a great day’s golf! Clare was in form over the weekend with winning the National Golf Club Challenge in aid of Help For Heroes competition the day before with 38 stableford points.
Ladies Captain for 2018 Hannah Clark added “What more could I ask for! The Juby Cup marks the start of our golfing season, and all players had a lovely afternoon in the warm Spring sunshine.”
A popular event, this year 112 ladies from 20 clubs over 4 counties took part in the Ladies Open Day. A team format with prizes for nearest the pins and nearest the curved line.
The winning team was Maureen Hagen, Marion Hough, Cherry Eales and Rosemary Borland from Ely City GC with an impressive 116 points. Maureen Hagen of the winning team said the team were shocked but delighted to have won.
The prizes, presented by the 2018 Lady Captain Hannah Clark were Bury St Edmunds hampers, filled with produce from the local area including Maynards House juices, Butterworths tea and Harriet’s condiments. Hannah said “this is always such a popular event on our Ladies calendar and once again we were delighted to have a full field of players. A lot of organisation goes into the day and I couldn’t have done it without the support of Sandra and my Ladies Committee – a real team effort”.
