Swaffham Golf Club Ladies Section held their annual Am-Am on Wednesday.

Ninety-six ladies of various clubs from Norfolk and Suffolk played.

The weather started out chilly but warmed up later in the day.

They enjoyed the course but found the greens fast. A half-way house fortified them.

Ladies captain Jeanette Nash thanked the organiser and staff who worked hard to give them a good day.

The prizes to the top four groups and for nearest the pin and the straightest drive were presented by lady president Diny Hardy.
