ENMORE Park Golf Club was an exciting place to be last weekend when they hosted their Bubbles and Balls Event, which saw more than 50 women taking up the challenge to try golf.

All of the participants were new to golf and trying out their putting, chipping and distance golf skills on the expansive practice and putting areas.

The weather was kind and it was amazing that nobody got wet and the strong wind did not hamper the skills and the enjoyment of the occasion.

There was a chipping competition over the three two-hour sessions the winners of which were Jenny Hill, Belinda Middleton and Gemma O’ Toole.

Enmore is looking forward to welcoming many of the women back to the coaching programmes to be held in May and June.

If anyone who would like to be part of the new to golf coaching programme, contact manager@enmore park.co.uk.

This whole event was made possible by the excellent contribution and support of Enmore’s women member volunteers, who ensured there was plenty of activity and fun, all supported by PGA professional Nigel Wixon.

On Wednesday, despite the inclement weather the Ladies Section played the Lambert Cup which was won by Stephanie Bristow with 32 points.

The Ladies nine-hole qualifier was won by Rosemary Harris – congratulations to all who braved the awful weather conditions.

n THE Final of the Edward Cup was played at Enmore Park on Sunday.

After competition throughout the winter, the mixed foursomes knock-out final saw Jackie Woodman and Iain Bowdige beat Judith Sperring and Paul ‘Sniper’ Henson.

Enmore’s Avalon League Seniors team played last year’s fellow finalists, Worlebury, in an away fixture last Wednesday.

Club captain, Paul Martin, and Rob Fear took the first match, although Enmore’s Neil Whisler and Chris Marsh lost the second.

Steve James and Bob Kippen won the third game but Keith Miller and debutant Howard Mathers’ defeat in the fourth saw the scores level.

Meantime, Worlebury’s Keri Allchurch and Gary Freeman were seeing their lead slip through their fingers.

They could only stand and watch as Enmore’s team captain, Mike Rossiter, partnered by Martyn Westbury, made a five-foot putt on the 18th green to salvage a half, having been two down with two to play.

The match result was 2½-2½.

On Thursday, Enmore host Tall Pines.
