A VERY successful Ladies Invitation event was held at Whitstable & Seasalter Golf Club.

Guests from 12 different clubs played with Whitstable ladies.

In first place were Margaret Barker and Janet Fright, with a combined 71 points after a countback, with Maz Garlinge and Moira Streetfield also gaining 71 points.

In third place were Jenny Vening and Mary Robinson with 60. The best home player for 18 holes was Garlinge, and Robinson took the prize for the best 18 holes by a visitor.

Helen Foad was nearest the centre line on the second hole and nearest-the-pin-on-the-sixth winner was Janet Henley. Liz Harvey was the best home player on the first nine holes with Lesley Mumford winning on the second nine.

A Ladies Section Autumn Greensomes produced a win by Jackie Witten and Foad with 42 points, second was Sue Maflin and Margaret Annal with 38 points, followed by Chris Chapman and Harvey on 38 points.

In a medal competition Maflin was first with a six-below-par 60 net and a handicap cut, Judy Butcher was second with 68 and Vilma Parrett was third with 70 net.

Finals day for the Club's Annual Knock Competitions was held in dry but cold conditions and was dominated by Pat Bensted, who was in three finals.

She won the Ladies Seasalter Cup against Penny Perkins, and the Stanley Cup mixed with Ted Henderson against rivals Jack Dale and Mary King, but lost the ladies' Jubilee Rosebowl final with Shirley Dalton to the pair of Louise Tucker and Debbie Murray.

Louise Tucker's son Jack Tucker won the Junior Cup over Bradley Packham, last year's winner.

In the men's section Tony Love showed his prowess on the course with a win in the Veteran's cup over David Gower and the major prize of the Club Captain's cup over 36 holes was won by Ronnie Rumball.
