Teams came from far and wide to play in the Ladies Open AmAm Competition at Retford Golf Club on 28th April. A fine day, a well-manicured course and a good field led to some high scoring.

In first place, with 86 points, was a team from Stanton-on-the-Wolds: Jan Hooley, Pat Husdon, Cath Burnside and Jackie Richards. In second place, with 83 points, were Monica Harris (Newark), Jayne Cooper (Whittington Hall) and Carol Simpson and Teresa Burgoyne (Horsley Lodge) in third place. Fourth place went to a team from Mickleover with 82 points, fifth place to a team from Charnwood Forest with 80 points and sixth place to Burghley Park with 79 points.
