In 2017 Didsbury ladies did their club proud as they reached the finals day in the MDLGA Bell Cup staged at Bury Golf Club, and lost out in the semi-finals after some great wins along the way.
This year they had a tough draw in the preliminary round as they had to travel to Hale Golf Club, whose ladies team have enjoyed success in the competition in recent years. Didsbury put up a great fight but lost narrowly by 4-3, but enjoyed a great moment on the day as team regular Brenda Chadwick holed her tee shot on the 16th hole when playing home star Tiff Fielden.
Brenda used a rescue wood to cover the 119-yard hole to complete her ace hat-trick. Her previous holes in one were both at Didsbury secured on the 18th in 2008, and the second three years later on the 4th.
Despite losing the match the ace helped the after-match celebrations at the 19th hole.
