Welcome to Heworths Ladies News from 2016

 Congratulations to Mrs Margaret Tindale  for another county success. She won the DCLGA Autumn event silver division, the Miller Potts Trophy at Heworth.  County success for another of our ladies, Mrs  Pat Dunn, who won the best gross prize in the bronze division at the same event.

The American Golf ladies championship is being held this weekend at the Belfry and we have two ladies who qualified for the

national final  and are playing there  on Friday Sept. 9th and Saturday 10th.  Good luck to those ladies.

Success for Heworth ladies section once again in winning the  Thomlinson Cup silver division for 2016. Susan Handley and Stacey Allen won their matches in the 2nd and quarter final rounds at Whickham and  then were successful versus Brancepeth in the semi final at  Whitburn.  They went on to beat Hobson ladies  4-2 in the final  to secure victory for Heworth G.C.  Heworth ladies have been in the final twice over the past years but we have never before overcome that final hurdle to take the Cup.

Well done ladies.
