Tuesday evenings weather forcast was viewed with dismay because it showed rain and the following day was Alderley ladies Exchange Day at New Mills and, even with wonderful panoramic views, New Mills course is not a place you want to be in pouring rain.
But Wednesday morning arrived minus the heavy rain and, okay there were a few showers,but we can cope with those.
As it happened, due to a society booking at New Mills in the morning, we were unable to go out until 1 o'clock. This proved to be to our advantage as when our first tee time approached the sun came out and it became pleasantly warm.
After all the teams had played, the ladies came in to a very welcoming, cosy room where good food was consumed and after a couple of glasses of wine the prize winners were announced.
The puttting competition was won by Tracy McGregor on 33.
Nearsest the pin was Celia Berent and the longest drive was Olwen Davies.
The 9 hole competition was won by Margaret Sumner, but the team competition was won by Val Hornsby, Lady President, Yvonne Grundy, Lady Captain, Gwyn Holt and Karen Pennington with a tremendous score of 95.
Well done ladies!
New Mills very generously donated a free 4 ball voucher which was won by Mary Beckett in a draw.
Oh well, that's the Exchange Day over for 2017, enjoyed by everyone and always good fun.
