Xmas Party Golf
Santa and elf hats and Christmas jumpers were donned for the annual Christmas 9 hole golf competition and the ladies enjoyed the rare opportunity to play in mild clear weather.
The 3 ball AmAm was won by the team of Sue Kendrick, Justine Jackson and Terry Broomhall with Janette Smith taking the prize for the best Christmas outfit.
Unfortunately due to being too busy enjoying the occassion, everyone forgot to take a photographic record of Janette's festive outfit.
Ladies Picnic Take 2, 3/11/20
I really did think we were going to be very lucky with the weather when I turned up at the course this morning but how wrong could I be.
Well done to everybody who turned up and braved the elements to finally finish our extended picnic.
It was very interesting to find that my rescue club sends the ball a lot further across the green than my putter. I did hear however that some people are thinking about replacing their putter altogether with their alternative weapon of choice.
After a very close battle, the results are as follows;
38 points- Gwyn, LVC Karen, LP Alison and Sarah D
34 points- Julie R, LC Sue, Jean, Claire R
33 points- Celia, Fiona, Jo P, Valerie
32 points- Sue K, Mary, Barbara E, Terri
31 points- Jo M, Yvonne, Helen W, Wendy T
31 points- Angela, Olwen, Liz G, Justine
28 points- Marion, Carol, Rose, Ghost ( Sarah D )
Nearest the pin- 4 shoes away- Yvonne
Once again, well done to everyone who turned out for our final comp before lockdown.
Ladies Turkey Trot Open/ Invitation
The 2020 Turkey Trot was a great success and well supported by visitors and AEGC members alike with 10 teams in total entered, 3 visiting teams and 17 visitors in all. The competition was played in very wet and windy conditions however this did not seem to stop the players from enjoying this very well organised event.
The winners were:-
First Prize Winners ; Tina Berry, June Whitfield and Linda Woods from Breightmet Golf Club with 49 points
Second Prize Winners; Liz Perry, Moira Ellis and Jackie Fenton also from Breightmet Golf Club with 48 points
Third Place; Yvonne Grundy, Liv Bruster and Judy Read from Alderley Edge Golf Club with 47 points.
Nearest the Pin was Linda Woods.
The full list of results for all the teams entered will be available on Tuesday 3rd November in the locker room.
On behalf of the Ladies section, I would like to thank LVC Karen Pennington and Claire Roberts for their hard work organising the Turkey Trot and making it an enjoyable day for all the players.
Thanks also to Sue Kendrick, Liz Gardner and Olwen Davies who ensured the halfway house refreshments and cakes were available for the players and Marion Hall for collecting the cards and confirming the scores. To all the cake bakers, thank you for the delicious selection of cakes for the halfway house refreshments which were appreciated by all the players.
The raffle, donations and the sale of the face masks and cakes raised £250 for the Captain's Charity, Dementia UK. A huge thank you to everyone who donated raffle prizes and to Fiona Anderson's grandchildren for the homemade face masks.
The thanks do not stop here, and also go to Sam Murray, Clubhouse Supervisor and her team in the clubhouse and Jacqui Hewitt, Club Bookkeeper for their help and support for this event.
The Turkey Trot will be in the same week in 2021 and one to put in the diary now due to the popularity of this Open/ Invitation event at AEGC.

Closing Sides Results and Announcements
The 2020 Closing Sides was played in beautiful autumn weather, on a relatively dry course and resulted in a draw. 3:2 for the Lady President's team playing Greensomes over 18 holes, a win for the Lady Captain's team in the Single match play while the 9 hole Greensomes match was a very friendly all square. A very fitting result for the end of this golfing year where very little match play has taken place. Well played to all the ladies and both I and Lady President thank you for taking part.
It is usual to make several announcements after Closing Sides at the social gathering but as this could not take place this year, the announcements are by e mail.
Firstly to catch up on results of previous club competitions that have not already been announced and to congratulate the winners.
