WGTB Mixed Pairs at Ashton-under-Lyne

Vicars Cross duo win in tight finish

ASHTON-under-Lyne Golf Club were their usual excellent hosts for the second WGTB Mixed American Foursomes competition of the season.

They provided an interesting, challenging and pristine course with superb off-course hospitality in their fine clubhouse.

There were plenty of good scores in the rewarding conditions and in the end it went to a cpo on 45 points with Vicars Cross duo Ian Mathews and Carol Harvey winning with a better back nine score from Linda Bolt (Stockport) and Alan Simmons (Didsbury) to win a fine prize of a round for four at Prestbury GC..
