Links rise to the challenge as they retain the Rose Bowl

Having won the Cambs & Hunts Mary Cole Rose Bowl for the first time in 39 years last year, the team from Links, Newmarket put in another fantastic performance to retain the trophy. The team of Marcella Tuttle, Sarah Greenall and Edie Douglas put together nett scores of 75, 73 and 74 respectively for a team score of 222 in the 18 hole stroke play competition held at St Ives Golf course.

Saffron Walden and Gog Magog were equal on 231 and it took a countback to determine that Saffron Walden had claimed the runners-up trophy by virtue of the lowest individual nett score thanks to junior player Hettie Carter’s nett 71. Other members of the team were Elaine Purcell 83 and Lynda Minton nett 77.

Links Captain Marcella Tuttle said she was delighted with the team’s performance and amazed that they had retained the trophy.
