On a dry but bitter cold day ladies competed in the Millennium Bowl and McCall Shield Stroke Competitions at Co Armagh Golf Club on Thursday 14 April 2022. The Millennium Bowl had been donated by Mrs Cecelia Woods, Lady Captain in 2000 and was competed for by golfers with a playing handicap between 0 and 24. The McCall Shield, for those with a playing handicap between 25 and 54, had been presented by Mrs Flo McCall when she was Lady Captain in 2009.
For prize-giving Lady Captain Karen had created a beautiful Easter-themed display showcasing both the Millennium Bowl and the McCall Shield amid daffodils and chocolate treats.
Forty-seven ladies played in the 18 hole competition.
The Millennium Bowl was won by Emma Garrigan with nett 69. Second, with nett 70, was Alexandra Mawhinney, beating Gail Steed on countback into third place.
The McCall Shield was won by Shernette Mullan with a fantastic nett 59. Sylvia Ashe was second with nett 73 and Joy Steenson third with nett 74.
