Brockville Country Club's Teri deLuis joined nineteen other senior ladies from across Ontario to compete in the Irish Senior Women's Open Stroke Play Championship held at Castlerock Golf Club in Northern Ireland. The event took place September 11-13, 2013 with a 103 player field.
When Teri was asked what she thought of the experience, she replied, "Northern Ireland is a beautiful county and has great people. The weather on the other hand was a very different experience. Both tournaments were plagued with gale force winds and torrential rain with the British shortened to 36 holes. Links golf is a different game, great fun .. you have to be creative and stay out of the fescue and pot bunkers. You learn to take your lumps and just get the ball back in play".
Teri ended up 27th overall in both events in the field of some 100 competitors. On the final day of the British, Teri was low Canadian and 5th overall. Great playing Teri.
It sounds like a great trip. Congratulations Teri in representing yourself, Ontario and Canada so well at both the Irish and British Senior Ladies Amateur Championships.
