LADIES' CAPTAIN'S DRIVE-IN and SENIORS V LADIES
Both of these events took place in the same week and were very enjoyable. Although having to hit several balls off the first Tee in front of everyone was a little daunting to say the least, it was lovely to have so many ladies supporting and trying to guess where the balls would end up. At least they were mostly on the first fairway, even if some drifted towards the trees bordering the 9th. The weather couldn't have been better given the time of year with warm sunshine and little wind so I didn't have any excuses for my below par golf. Vice Captain Rina said that the result was a close win for her side but I think she was being kind. I have a feeling that the margin wasa little wider than that!
The meal afterwards was lovely and Presentations of Visor clip with ball markers were made to those who placed their flags nearest to balls at the Drive-in.
The Winter Competition winners were:
Winter League - Kath Sharman and Julia Hatcher
Winter Eclectic - Eva Glasby
Winter Birdie - Eva Glasby
Winter Par - Miyako Williams
Many Ladies stayed on afterwards to chat and enjoy each others company. A lovely ending to a brilliant day.
SENIORS v LADIES
This was another brilliant day weatherwise and thoroughly enjoyed by all who took part. A BIG thank you to Captain Trevor Harris, Vice Captain Mike Daniels and the Seniors for their hospitality and good sportsmanship, putting up with a 2 point addition to each ladies handicap and an unusual way of scoring with only a bit of good natured moaning. Most of the feedback re. the scoring system was positive, as it meant that everyone contributed whatever their score to the overall total - and there were some FANTASTIC scores from you Ladies. Most were in the 40's or late 30's with one outstanding 47!
WELL DONE LADIES! a decisive WIN and the Trophy with our name on it again.
The correct Pictures will be arriving on this page shortly. Keep checking.
The Christmas Lunch on December 16th was attended by 60 ladies who enjoyed a traditional Christmas meal interpersed with not so traditional, seasonal entertainments. As my first official event, I was delighted with the response to my Christmas Fancy Hat Competition. The ingenuity of those who entered was outstanding with decorated visors, straw hats, woolly hats, baubles, tinsel, lights (some flashing!) and even a Door wreath. After a parade, the Judges - Ladies' President Denise, Vice Captain Rina and myself, had a difficult job but finally chose the 3 winners. Edith Pacey's handknitted 3D hat being the voted the best winning her a National Trust Christmas pudding which I hope she enjoyed. The runner up prize was won by Linda Fearn with her Wreath hat and third prize was won by Josie Pepper with a beautifully decorated straw hat. When I've (finally) worked out how, I'll put some of the pictures on to this page.There was also a 'stand up Bingo' game which was won by Rosemary Lloyd who was presented with a bottle of sparkling Prosecco.
The Christmas Fayre winners were also presented with their prizes. They were:
Silver Division Bronze Division
1st Sue Bean 1st Miyako Williams
2nd Sue Birkett 2nd Jill Todd
3rd Sue Burns 3rd Tracy Ferguson
4th Nan Cheshire
Next up was the January Medal followed by Wine and Mince Pies. It was lovely to see so many Ladies there, present and past members taking the opportunity to catch up after the Christmas break.
Eighty-one Ladies attended the Ladies' Evening on the 30th January and were well entertained by the amazing Magician, Brian Hellyer and by Comedian and singer, Tony Rutherford. Dancing continued til gone eleven when carriages arrived to transport the weary revelers home.
Having managed to get these pages rolling on the website, I hope to keep you updated on events a little more regularly.
