Ladies Nine Hole Open/Invitation
A day including weather from all four seasons provided the backdrop for today's 'Triple Tester', the nine hole competition for lady members, their guests and visiting teams. With an opportunity for a little retail therapy from the Body Shop, Pheonix Cards and 'Lovely Pretty Things', the clubhouse buzzed with activity as people enjoyed their lunch, the homemade cakes and took a chance on the raffle. Everyone was very generous in their support of Lady Captain's charity and nearly £180 was raised for Macmillian Cancer. Of course, it was really all about the golf and a range of prizes were up for grabs.
Winners of nearest the pin were Jean Walker, 4th and Sue Freeman 6th, and the winner of the putting competition was Helen Williams. The winner of the home players only team prize was Liz McGuire, Olwen Davies and Alison Roberts, and the visiting team prize went to the Prestbury Ladies, Ali Hallworth, Sue Williamson and Jude Durrant with 35 points. Second place in the main competition went to Lisa Burns, Tessa Day (Hale) and Caroline Perkins,(Hale) with 40 points (who didn't quite manage to repeat last year's winning performance) and top place with 42 points went to Karen Pennington, Claire Roberts and Wendy Higgins (Macclesfield).
Thank you for all the ladies who helped run the event

Our team was led by Wendy, Celia, Gwyn, Marion, Sue, Lisa and Karen against a young team with the top four players having playing handicaps of between 5 and 9 it was a tough ask for us. The result was a win to M&T, 5 matches to 2. They will go on to play either Styal or Hazelgrove in the next round.

She presented Helen Williams with a silver salver for winning the winter league competition with Barbara Moss coming second. Celia Berent was presented with a ball marker clip as part of having the best 4 EWGA medal scores for last year. Celia is invited to play in the regional final at Windermere Golf Club.

Mary O'Toole ( LVC ) then read out the draw for the Ladies Dobson Trophy Singles and the Foursomes Knockout to a lot of oohs and oh nos from the ladies when they heard who their opponents were!
The climax of the day was the announcement of which team had won today, Lady Captain's team had 2 wins but LVC team had 4 wins so the wooden spoon was presented to LC.
Lady Captain finished the day by wishing everyone a happy golfing season.
