Newmarket Links Ladies bowed out of the Mail on Sunday Classic after a fifth round defeat against Woburn.

Marcella Tuttle, Lynn Lambert, Sarah Reardon, Jane Monk and Sarah Greenall took on a strong Woburn team on their Duchess course, which is among the top 100 courses across the UK and Ireland.

Newmarket had seen off Haverhill, Ely, Aldeburgh and Bourn to reach the fifth round of the national competition.

Following the defeat, Links captain Tuttle said: “It was a wonderful opportunity for us to play at Woburn and it’s a day we won’t forget in a hurry.

“We’ll be back next year fighting our way through each round with the aim of trying to get even further.”
