Kristina Matthews of Brett Vale had an outstanding round to win the Sybil Green Cup for the best scratch score at Bungay & Waveney Valley Golf Club.  She had only 1 birdie (on the tricky 9th hole) but her consistent ‘tee to green’ play allowed her to play 6 shots below her handicap.  Abbie Symonds of Ipswich GC, a past winner of this event on several occasions had to settle for 2nd place, closely followed by Mariette Robbertse of BsE.

The Division 1 net prize went to Amanda Little of Ufford Park.  With 3 birdies on her scorecard her handicap should continue to drop.  Last year Amanda was 4 shots higher and playing in Division 2.

The huge and magnificent Challenge Shield for the lowest 3 gross scores from the same club went to Bury St Edmunds for the second consecutive year.

Congratulations to Mariette Robbertse, Bianca Theeruth and Elizabeth Bezance with a gross total of 249.

A big thank you to Frances Danielsen and Di Hegarty for being in charge on the day (so I could play) and to Bungay GC and everyone involved in helping to make the event such a success.

Next year the Division 1 Meeting will be at Thorpeness on Saturday 28th September 2024.
