Forty intrepid Ladies signed up for this year's Exchange Day at Ruddington Grange Golf Club and set off last Tuesday anticipating a good Golfing Day Out. At the same time, a party of Ruddington Grange Ladies headed in the opposite direction for their golfing day at Newark.
It was Initially a rather chilly morning, but after some bacon cobs and coffee everyone was ready for the competition. Ten groups set off for a Fourball betterball Stableford competition, two scores to count on each hole off full handicap. Happily the weather improved with warm sunshine bathing the course and players alike. The course itself was very lush with plenty to interest golfers including several dykes and ponds which challenged every player but also provided beautiful vista's for all to enjoy.
Once each team had finished their round, there was time for a drink sitting outside of the Clubhouse in glorious sunshine before retiring to the dining room for a beautifully prepared meal which was followed by the presentation to the day's winners.
