CARUS Green Golf Club’s Harriet Barker has proved her talent once again by winning both the Junior and Ladies’ Championship.
The ladies’ tournament, which took place earlier this month, saw the 16-year-old return rounds of 75 and 77 to win by 11 shots. She then took the junior title the following day. Playing off a handicap of just three, it’s now the fourth consecutive year that the Cumbrian club’s junior captain has won the Ladies Championship and the promising young golfer has had a tremendous season, having also won the Cumbria County Ladies Championship and Summer Trophy. She was presented with the Clarice Rose Trophy by Carus Green’s lady captain Ali Dufty.
The ladies’ runner-up was Carus Green’s golf manager and Moulie Moore County Vets Best Nett champion, Margaret Bebington. The ladies’ nett champion is Janet Ingham who, with a score of 134, pipped Diane Billington to the post by two strokes.
“As predicted, Harriet has had a great season; to hold this title for four years in a row is impressive,” said her coach, Carus head professional Dave Turner.
“We are starting to see some extremely talented young players coming up through the ranks now at Carus and Harriet is a real inspiration to these youngsters developing and progressing their game.”
“I’m very happy to have won this title for the fourth time and winning the junior title was the cherry on the cake!” said Queen Katherine School pupil, Harriet.
