Attendees at the ever-popular IGS UK’s annual golf day broke par as well as records last month.

The Chapter hosted a record 11 teams, including the event’s first ladies team, at Wheatley Golf Club in Doncaster, UK.

After a practice nine holes in the morning, the main event of 18 holes teed off in the afternoon.

The overall winner was ladies team member Carol Alford. Ms Alford, who scored 39 points has a Course Handicap of 24 and achieved a Handicap of 18¾ in the competition.

Ms Alford was also part of the winning team, sponsored by Tensar, which included Ellie Gormley, Wendy Bennett and Christine Kenny-Day. Jonathan Cooke was captain of the second-placed Tensar team.

The scoring for the individual competition was based on the Stableford system, with ¾ handicaps. The team event was scored with the best two scores on holes 1-6, three best scores on holes 7-12 and all four scores for holes 13-18, all added together. The winning team had 102 points.

Event organizer Andy Cracknell, of NAUE Geosynthetics, said: “It was great to see everyone back on the golf course at this annual event and also good to welcome the first ladies team into this competition. I think everyone enjoyed the challenging Wheatley Golf Course and I look forward to welcoming everyone to the 2022 Golf Day, date to be announced.”
