A field of 21 ladies started out at Boston Golf Club’s Ladies’ Flag competition, but only 16 finished.

The format for the event was singles strokeplay, with full handicap allowance.

The winner, with her flag being placed 22 inches from the 18th hole, was Yvonne Shaffarczyk with a medal score of 73 nett (95-22).

As a result, her handicap has dropped from 22 to 21.4. Yvonne took first place in the medal qualifier.

Ruth Simpson came in second, with her flag just in front of the pond on the 18th. Her score of 85 (nett 76) was also the lowest gross on the day.

Pam King and Jean Markham finished with their flags in the 17th hole – Jean taking third in the medal qualifier.
