For the first time in many weeks players teed off on a cooler, stiller morning.  The recent dews had produced a green tinge across most fairways but they were still hard with the odd crack here and there; balls travelled a long way with the occasional one taking a surprising deviation.  The greens had recovers well from their recent deep coring however some recalcitrant corellas were still hanging around determined to do as much damage as they could before they headed north for the winter.  As a result putting on the 15th and 16th was quite a challenge.  The Doris Chambers Cup is an 18 Hole Stableford Foursomes event. The perpetual trophy was donated by Miss Doris Chambers OBE, former Ladies Golf Union President and was first played in 1950. Romsey women today played a qualifying round of this competition, the winners will proceed to one of two State Finals later in the year.
