Fab forest take five at ladies’ day

Dunham Forest were the most successful club at the Ladies National tournament for the UK Jewish Golf Clubs and Societies at Dyrham Park Country Club in Barnet.

The Cheshire-based delegation claimed five cups, including the main national trophy for the Team Gross.


Now in its 12th year, the competition, which featured 108 players representing 12 teams, is the only competition where women from Jewish clubs and societies from the United Kingdom and Ireland compete against one another in the female equivalent of the Glancy Cup. 

This year’s entrants featured Abridge, Bonnyton, Coombe Hill, Dyrham Park, Dunham Forest, Hartsbourne, Lee Park, Moor Allerton, Potters Bar, Shirley, Whitefield and a Combined Societies Team.

Dunham Forest also accumulated the best gross score (527) while Shirley earned the best net (458). Next year’s tournament, which is staged alternately in London and the provinces, will be hosted by Whitefield Golf Club in Manchester on May 21.
