A large field of 104 golfers from 38 different clubs played in perfect conditions at Saffron Walden’s Ladies Open.

And there was the rare sight of the same player winning both nearest the pin prizes, as Julia Smith (Royal Cromer) proved unbeatable on the fifth and 18th holes.

Competition for the major places was fierce, with Lois Dewhurst (East Herts) and Beryn Brown (Brickendon Grange) claiming top honours in the four-ball betterball with 45 points.

The duo have played in the last six opens at Saffron Walden, but this was their first triumph and came after steady golf from Dewhurst and a four-point haul on the fourth by Brown, who scored on every hole to contribute to success.

Mary Anne de Cruz and Claire Sines (Woolston Manor) finished as runners-up with 43 points, with Mary Hubbard and Pam Bowler (Bourn) in third place on 41 points.
