WELCOME TO ISLE OF MAN GOLF
Grant Thorton Isle of Man Ladies Close Golf Championships
This Sunday sees the start of the Grant Thorton Isle of Man Ladies Closed Golf Championships held at Douglas Golf Club starting at 12 noon.
Defending Champion Shirley Price representing Port St Mary Golf Club will be looking to hold on to the trophy won at Rowany Golf Club last year.
This year should be a competitive event with Kayleigh Dawson (Peel) Lynda Simpson (Castletown) and Shirley all having the same five handicap.
Nice to see the younger golf being represented with Emma Noon (Douglas Club Champion) and Gemma Crawford (Mount Murray) teeing it up. Last year’s runner up Lindsey Tickell has home course advantage this year and will be hoping to go one better.
The 36 hole stroke play on Sunday will reduce the field down to 8 for the match play stages.
Good luck to all competitors I get the feeling that this year’s championship will be a close affair.
