The Autumn Meeting proved to be a full day of golf for the ladies of Newark Golf Club. 44 ladies were down to play in the 18 hole medal in the morning. I think it will be a record 9 teams of three played in the 3-3-3 competition in the afternoon, with ladies teeing off until 4.00 p.m. The weather was quite kind, with a rather dull and overcast start with some quite windy conditions throughout the day, but at least the day remained dry! The course played quite tough, but some of the scores on the day said otherwise!!
A fantastic overall winning score of nett 68 by Tish Applewhite proved too good to beat on the day. Tish was however closely followed by Julia Hatcher with a superb nett 69, which off her handicap is absolutely stunning, so congratulations ladies. Jo had her work cut out on the day feeding in the scores and checking them all as there were several other nett 69 scores too including Jane Tucker, and myself. The bronze winner was Erica Sanson who too posted a fantastic nett 69 to win the bronze division. Other creditable scores were posted by Maureen Paulson, Megan Allen, Barbara Channon, Carole Wass, Rita Stevenson, Jo Jalland, Susan Harding, Aimee Ferguson, Susan Birkett to name but a few. A hearty congratulations ladies some superb scores on the day.
The 3-3-3 competition in the afternoon was won by Maureen Paulson, Erica Sansom and Mia Williams with 35 points on countback from Rina Ozolins, Margaret Lewis and Di Allen. Congratulations ladies. The putting competition was won by Brenda Wood with 33 putts and second place was Margaret Lewis.
The prize table looked stunning thanks to Eva who did a wonderful job of going out and sourcing the varied selection of prizes. Thank you Eva for your attention to detail, the table was lovely, and much appreciated by the winners.
Dinner was expertly served by Karen Nick and the team, and by the look of the clean plates certainly on our table, everyone thoroughly enjoyed the carvery served Gammon joint with potatoes and salad. It would be remiss of me if I failed to mention Susan Harding who yet again provided some beatiful flowers on every table - thank you Susan.
Sandra came back from holiday and got immediately stuck into selling raffle tickets for the ladies section - there are some prizes left so ladies check your tickets and see any of the committee if you were unable to stay just in case you have won a prize. I would also like to thank Sandra for sorting out the order, and the winners prizes.
I must also thank Caroll and the ladies in the halfway house who duly filled us with tea and cakes half way round in the morning, and I am sure this contributed to the excellent scores, so thank you ladies.
There was a lovely atmosphere in the club house, and great to see the ladies enjoy the evening.
Thank you all for continuing to particpate in all that we can throw at you!
