Meadows GC Open 2018

29 April 2018, Meadows

There were 12 entrants for this year's open tournament, with a handicap range from -3 to 7. Janice Duguid was competing in her first GC tournament and Andrea and David Widdison had made the journey North from their home club Ripon Spa. The contestants were ranked within two blocks and play had not long started before it became clear that form is no respecter of handicaps, Lorna Dewar (5) defeating David Widdison (-1) and Robert Darling (3) defeating James Hopgood (-3), in their respective blocks. The block play was followed by cross-ties, with the semi-final pairings of L. Dewar v. J Hopgood and R Darling v. D. Widdison. Lorna and David prevailed and progressed through to an entertaining best-of-three final. The contestants were very evenly matched but it was Lorna who held her nerve and deservedly won the trophy.
