The Ulster Branch of the Senior Women’s Golf Society recently held their Spring Meeting at Portstewart Golf Club on the Riverside Course, and what a day it turned out to be for the ‘home’ players.

The format of the competition was a three ball Waltz and with forty eight teams taking part the competition was tough.
