Ladies Captains Drive In Match & Supper

Tuesday 15th March saw the ladies Captains Drive In take place on a cold but dry day. This year as Ladies Captain I thought I would mix it up a little with me using every club in my bag including my putter, which could have gone horribly wrong, but no matter!  It was interesting using a two ball putter to tee off, and just for your information I do not recommend it!  I have carried a 3 Wood in my bag for about six years,  and it is like new as it has probably only been hit about half a dozen times in all those years of being carted from one course to another.  I actually managed to nail this down the middle - I think there must be a lesson in there somewhere eh Rob?  Later in the day the ladies who had predicted where all the balls would finish were presented with a ball and a small silk mirror as a gift.

The ladies Captain and the Vice Captains' teams had an epic battle, with a lot of the matches going down to the wire.  The Captains' team did however just manage a wiin.

I would like to say a huge thank you to Karen, Tom, Nick and Matt for providing us with an excellent meal.  Lots of really good comments from the ladies about the meal, and service.  Another excellent and different meal, so thank you all.

Finally a thank you from me to all who came to wish me well, and witness me digging up the tee with my driver when one of the massive rose petal filled balloons were burst in the middle of my backswing (sorry Graeme!) thanks Carole, a really nice surprise.

 A lovely official start to the season for me to see all of the people who took the trouble to come and watch.

Ladies Coach & Course Golf Competition

Another new competition for 2016 was the Coach and Course session on  the 23rd February.  The weather was absolutely perfect.  The ladies went over to the driving range in their three balls.  Robert supplied the golf balls and had a look at all the ladies swings.  He even took a few action shots so that he could give us all a personal tip after the completion of the game.   Some fantastic scores were posted on the day by Mureen Paulson, Erica Sansom,, Janet Horner and Megan Allen.  Robert donated prizes for the ladies on the day, which were very happily received, and it is nice to see some new ladies winning, so congratulations to all the ladies.  Hopefully we will all benefit from Roberts wise words, and keep trying to put his tips into practice.  A very different day which was enjoyed by everyone participating.

Keep your eye out for the next Nine and Dine which is in the diary for April the 5th.  We also have the County Handicap Advisor Maureen Clarke coming to join us.  She will be setting up an informal rules afternoon, so ladies do make this a date in your diary as I am sure she will give us some useful tips and information.

It is fantastic to see the number of ladies entering the winter competitions, and with the March Stableford we have had to extend the tee times, as over 40 ladies have entered!  Do keep joining in, and the next main event is the "Match and Supper following the Drive In so please do come and watch!
