Mother Nature certainly made things difficult for the six-member Country Club of Greenfield women’s golf team on Tuesday.

The club traveled to The Ridge Club in Sandwich to compete in the 2020 Mass Golf Fall Cup championship, and scores were only counted through nine holes as play was suspended due to rain.

CCG finished seventh as a team in gross scoring at 24-over-par, and tied for 11th in net scoring with a gross even-par score as 18 different clubs competed in the event.

Defending champion TPC Boston and Sagamore Spring Golf Club of Lynnfield tied for the low gross scores of the day at 17-over

Greenfield’s No.1 tandem of Terry Boyce and Diane Carme shot 4-over-par 39, as Boyce finished a team-best 5-over on her own ball while Carme notched a 10-over round. They were the only CCG team to finish all 18 holes.

The No. 2 grouping of Liz Dolby and Tina Browne, which nearly finished their round but heard the horn blow for weather just before their final shots on the 18th hole, posted a gross score of 7-over 42 on the nine holes that counted. The No. 3 pairing of Liz Archer and Nancy Donoghue shot 13-over 48. Dolby shot 48, putting her 13-over-par, while Browne finished 15-over. Archer also shot 13-over and Donoghue was a plus-15 on the day.

“It rained sideways most of the time,” explained Dolby of the weather. “I’m so proud of us, especially considering the conditions.”

Dolby and Browne notched a 1-under net score of 34, while Boyce and Carme were even (35) and the team of Archer and Donoghue posted a 1-over 36.
