Ladies Exchange Day - Mapperley Park Golf Club 3rd July 2018
A great day out was enjoyed by 24 ladies from Newark Golf Club who went to Mapperley Golf Club on our Annual Exchange Day.
We were very warmly welcomed by Sue Bunting of Mapperley Ladies, who also acted as our Starter.
After Bacon Cobs and drinks, we set off in the very warm sunshine to play a Stableford Competition, on what is a very challenging course.
It is just a little more undulating - ok hilly - than Newark, but - wow - what stunning views you get from the top of those hills.
We all returned to the Clubhouse for an excellent meal , followed by prize giving.
Our overall winner on the day was Sarah Rigby with a fabulous 36 points. The other winners were :- Caroll McLachlan 30, Linda Dunwoodie 29, Shelley Pritchard 29, Nina Brittain 28, Sue Birkett 28, Erica Sansom 28, & Kath Sharman 26.
Well played everyone.
Thanks to everyone at Mapperley for a great day - Sue Bunting, The Pro Shop Staff, and particularly the caterer - Adrian Mason , and his staff.
Most of all, thanks to the ladies who came to play Mapperley, hope you all enjoyed your day.
Josie, Ladies’ Captain.
The Ladies Spring Meeting Tuesday 24th April 2018
46 Ladies played for The Spring Trophy and Spring Meeting Prizes.
Ladies President, Kath, had organised the lovely Prizes from Hollybeck Nursery– tubs and baskets full of plants and flowers.
Very appropriate for Spring, which is more than can be said for the weather, April showers we expect, but the “shower” on Tuesday started at Midday and never let up.
We were kept going by the wonderful goodies in the Halfway House, thanks to the bakers and makers.
Although spirits may have been dampened on the course, we were revived after in the Clubhouse, sitting down together for an excellent meal, thanks to Matt, Rob, and Jimmy.
Thanks to all the Committee for their hard work in getting the whole event organised and running so smoothly.
Also thanks to our “honorary members for the day”, Chris Watson and Derrick Lewis in the Halfway House, and Ken Brittain – Super Raffle Ticket Seller .
The greens staff have been busy and although the course was in excellent condition, and looked a picture, scores reflected the difficult playing conditions - CSS going up to 74.
The Best Nett of the Day, and The Spring Trophy, was won with a fantastic nett 73 by Sarah Rigby. Well done Sarah.
