35 Ladies drove down to Burghley Golf Club to play in this years' Ladies Exchange Day. A great turn out considering how busy the golf calendar is this year, with league matches and club competitions at least once if not twice a week, it is proving quite difficult to fit all this golf in! This year 44 ladies travelled from Burghley to play our home club. Some fantastic comments from the visiting ladies - here is one of the emails received praising the day : -
"Just got home, and wanted to send this message to show our appreciation. We all had a fantastic day - our ladies loved it! The course and catering were great. Nick, Karen and the teams looked after us really well. The ladies all enjoyed the food judging by the 100% clean plates!. The ladies in the halfway house did a great job too. Thank you so much for helping to make this day a great success."
From the minute we arrived at Burghley the welcome could not have been better. We were met by Di, David and Donald who presented the ladies with a welcome gift from the Pro, which was a lovely gesture. Tony and the catering staff were outstanding, even moving all the tables in the restaurant so that we had 3 tables of 12, and he set up the prize table for us too. The course was in great condition, but judging by the winning scores on the day it did play long!
Congratulations to Linda Dunwoodie a worthy winner. In fact congratulations to all the winners. We had two "surprise team" prizes on the day - giving everyone a chance to win a prize with teams of three being picked totally at random, and this proved a welcome surprise for a few of the ladies.

Thank you to Jo for sorting out all the scorecards, and taking the photographs too.
The food was excellent as was the service. All in all a lovely day definitely helped by the fact that we pretty much got round in the dry despite quite a bad weather forecast. Get your diaries ready for next year as Carole has booked Toft Golf Club at Bourne for this event next year. A fantastic way to play at another golf course for the cost of your meals, and a little towards the prize table. Don't forget to look at our diary for the mixed exchange day - this year we are visiting Gainsborough Golf Club.
I hope all the ladies "on tour" enjoyed the day as much as I did. Your continued support for events throughout 2016 is very much appreciated.
