This was Christine’s third final in four years and it proved to be lucky for her as she became Northumberland Veteran Ladies Champion for the first time.

Christine is currently club champion at her home club Morpeth. She beat Elaine Elliott, a previous champion, in the final round, having beaten Ally Hansen at the 20th hole in the morning semi-final.

The conditions on the final day were far from pleasant with swirling strong winds and rain but obviously Christine’s upbringing on the course at Nairn Golf Club in the Scottish Highlands stood her in good stead.
