Lightning stops Tolf ladies match


Toft ladies’ first friendly match of the year took them to Elton Furze Golf Club, a new venue in their calendar.

The match got underway normally until thunder sounded when the first couples were on the 6th green, swiftly followed by forked lightning which closely missed players on the 4th green. The klaxon sounded and play was suspended.

Torrential rain took over and the match had to be cancelled so there was no match result but the excellent meal and friendly hospitality offered were appreciated by the Toft ladies who will return to conclude the match another day.
