Pienaar was five under her handicap and four better than the field during the traditional start to the competitive season, which sees players compete over 18 holes of strokeplay in the morning, followed by nine holes of foursomes.

A large field of 54 took part, with Pienaar receiving the salver from Doreen Ettling and saying: "It was a day when every aspect of my game came together. My long game was very steady and I got good distance, while my putting on the greens held firm.

"I was particularly pleased to par a couple of the par three holes."

Jo Reay (72) beat Sylvia Goddard to first place in the Bronze B Division, before Peat and Stella Parker won the foursomes with 19 points on countback from Justine Voss and Debs Bowler.

Goddard and Vicky Rutherford were third on 17 points.
