Twenty-five ladies competed for the Grandmothers Trophy, writes Angela Coles.

This was presented to the ladies Section by Mrs Betty Ford in 1988.

The format for the competition was stableford.

After the previous two scorching hot days the conditions were challenging with a cool brisk wind.

However, Sheila Faulkner made light of the difficulties and continued her recent fine form to win the Trophy with a score of 36 points.
