It was a day of drama and excitement at the Little Hay Ladies Invitation Day.

The pairs better-ball Stableford competition produced excellent scores – however these were outshone by two sparkling individual achievements.

Little Hay’s Nicola Goddard shot a hole in one on the 157-yard eighth hole, while Ashridge’s Julie Ivelaw-Chapman saw her second shot on the 304-yard sixth run up onto the green and drop into the hole for an eagle two.

The overall winners of the competition were Jean Dove and Ivelaw-Chapman with 50 Stableford points, ahead of runners-up Dawn Rose and Anne Seaford with 47 points and third-placed Chris Woodcock and Pam Swaham with 46 points.
