Ladies Spring Meeting & Waltz

The ladies could not have hoped for a better day to play golf for the Spring Meeting.  We would have been delighted with the weather had it been a July day with bright sunshine from start to finish.  I even managed to burn my cheeks - no I did not have short shorts on, heaven forbid!

Another fantastic turnout, especially for the afternoon nine hole Waltz with 10 teams of three venturing out for the afternoon team match. Please see the pictures above of some of our deserved winners, kindly taken by Jo Jalland.  

The course was in fantastic condition for the time of year - so thank you Graeme and team for presenting the course so well.  A special thank you to our two gentlemen starters Mr Derek Lewis and Mr Brian Wass for setting us off at the right time and place.  Your help is as always greatly appreciated.  

The morning medal was extremely well supported with 49 ladies taking part. some of the ladies taking the day off work to joint in, and it is great to welcome you all.  Many congratulations to all our worthy winners and a special congratulations to Tish Applewhite with a wonderful nett 70 and a well deserved cut to her handicap.  The prize table looked amazing thanks to Kath Sharman who organised the wonderful tubs, planters and hanging baskets that formed the prizes for the day, it looked very impressive.

The tables for dinner were dressed for Spring with some beatuiful flower arrangements by Susan Harding.  The locker room too had a "spring flower" make-over. 

Matt, Nick, Karen and their teams provided us with yet another excellent meal with yet again a different menu choice, we are being totally spoilt!, so thank you one and all for all your hard work and excellent service on the day.

The day would not be complete without all the willing helpers, organised by Carol Maclachlan,  such as all the ladies that baked wonderful cakes and savories for our halfway refreshment, and indeed the ladies who give so generously of their time to stand in the halfway house and serve us, it all makes the day special. 

Josie Pepper did a fantastic job on the raffle, and those lucky enough to win a prize were delighted.  This managed to raise approx £90 on the day. The committee ladies all worked hard behind the scenes doing everything from checking the cards and making sure they are all correct, to organising the prize winners lists, special thanks to Jo, Allison, Carole and Sandra.

All in all another excellent day, and it is credit to all you lady members that make this section what it is,  making it a pleasure to be Ladies Captain.

April Nine & Dine + Rules Afternoon

A different opportunity for the ladies of Newark Golf Club today.  Maureen Clarke - England golf Referee and County Handicap Advisor joined us to impart some of her vast array of knowledge on our much loved game.  Another successful Nine and Dine competition preceeded the Rules afternoon.  Even though this week is course maintenance week, I was very impressed with the way that Graeme and his team presented the  course   for us, impressive for this time of year, many thanks!  

The stableford competition was won by Megan Allen with 22 points, second Tish applewhite with 20 points, third was Barbara Channon with 19 points and fourth was Carole Wass with 18 points.  Well done ladies, good scoring!  

A superb lunch of chicken & pesto pasta with roasted vegetables and garlic bread went down very well on a cold but mostly dry morning.  Karen, Matt, Rob and the team again did us proud with another diffeferent menu.  We organised a hot drinks station, with ladies collecting their own drinks before settling down to listen and watch Maureen's interesting display.  She started "on the tee" and the teeing ground and went all the way round the course with lots of different situations that we could all find ourselves in!  All in all a very enlightening afternoon with lots of well fielded questions from our knowledgeable ladies.

It was lovely to welcome some of our newer ladies to this event, and I am sure they will put the information to good use later this year when they all move on to gain their handicaps.  Particlarly nice to see our more senior ladies who love to come and join in and support these events, so thank you all for attending, it is greatly appreciated.
