The Kerry Cup (Ladies)

This trophy, in the form of a silver tankard, was donated by Mrs H.L. Kent and, as a continuous golfing trophy, is probably unique in being named after an animal. Kitty Kent, who lived at Graceville, rode her horse, Kerry, to and from golf during and after the Second World War initially to overcome petrol rationing. The affection surrounding Kitty and her horse was such that Kerry’s death in June 1965 was recorded in the Associates’ minutes and a letter of sympathy sent to Mrs Kent.

Played as a net stroke qualifying round of 18 holes with 8 to qualify for match play, there have been a few multiple winners of the trophy. Mrs H.V. Turner recorded spaced wins in 1950, 1954 and 1958 while back to back winners have been Mrs J.W. Vincent in 1977/1978 and Miss T. Dunn in 1992/1993.  Mrs R. Elphinstone won in 1994 and 1995; Mrs T. Ruzzene in 1996 and 1997; Mrs A. Fell in 2001 and 2006; and Mrs L. Conroy has an impressive seven wins in 1999, 2004, and back to back wins from 2008 to 2012.
