It is one of many great things I get to do in my job, to present the trophy at the Ladies Golf Open. To add to the event it was on a delightful sunny day in July when over a hundred ladies arrived at a beautifully manicured Woodbury Park Golf and Country Club for their annual Ladies Golf Open of 2014. Once again the battle commenced in hope of winning the coveted Bradleys Trophy.
Not deterred by the torrential downpour that arrived unexpectedly in the last 15 minutes of play, the current Lady Captain of Woodbury Park, Sara Beaven came in with a stunning round ahead of the field to lift the trophy. The winning Visitor was Belinda McSherry from Tavistock Golf Club.
We at Bradleys have been very proud to support this superbly attended competition for many years, as players attend from many clubs across the region in which the firm operate. The excellent attendance is testament to the superb organisation of the WP Ladies Golf Committee and draw of such a prestigious and delightfully appointed venue at Woodbury Park. Sara went home very satisfied with the superb efforts made by her organising committee lead by Betty Pledger and with a home win for the first time in a few years, with her name on the Trophy to boot.
Sadly Betty stands down from the organisation next year, but makes way for Jacky Jacobs under the Captaincy of Maggie Thomas for another brilliant event in 2015. Oh and yes, happily supported by Bradleys Estate Agents where once again I hope to be the chosen Director to present the trophy in the sunshine.
