Seniors and Ladies

Mary's Blog.

How quickly time passes! It doesn't seem 2 minutes since the Seniors vs Ladies competition heralded the start of the season and everyone was looking forward to playing golf in the sun ( that was of course before the rain started ).

Now Friday 23rd September brought the Seniors and Ladies competition which spells the onset of the closing games of the season.

With a shortfall in the number of ladies playing, 7 teams went out, 3 teams of 2 ladies and 2 men, 4 teams of 1 brave lady and 3 men, but the mix worked well. Everyone had a very enjoyable day aided by the dry and sunny weather.

The winning team of Celia Berent, Dave Atkinson, Steve Saunders and Peter Croome came in with a resounding score of 54 points, so very well done to them.

Match Results

On Saturday the business ladies , Gwyn, Wendy and Karen played in their quarter final match against Hazel Grove.

This was played at Birchwood golf club near Warrington. Sadly the result was a win to Hazel Grove but well done for getting as far as the quarter finals.

On Monday the Shield B team were also at Birchwood playing their quarter final match against Warrington. The weather was atrocious, pouring down for most of the 18 holes and squeegy mops being used to dry off the greens. It was such a close match, 3 all with one match to finish which went to the 18th hole but the victory was to Warrington. After drying out, we all enjoyed tea together.

Thanks to the team of Wendy, Celia, Gwyn, Marion, Valerie, Sue, Olwen and others who have turned out for all our matches this season, we did very well.

Exchange to Alsager

Sun and warm temperatures met a cheerful group of Alderley ladies as they arrived at Alsager on the Exchange Day organised by Lady Vice Captain. As usual, there was plenty of chat and laughter as a lovely meal was served. Winners were Lady Captain Alison Roberts with a nearest the pin on the wonderfully named 'Fish and Chip' par three 4th and winner of the putting competition with an impressive 35 points on a count back was Sue Slater. Barbara Moss was the only person with a two (chipping in on the 9th). Third in the team competition and receiving nothing but a mention were Lady President Gwyneth Holt, Wendy Rule, Barbara Moss and Claire Roberts, second prize winners were Lady Captain, Sue Kendrick, Karen Pennington and ghost (Barbara Moss). However, best team score went to Lady Vice Captain Yvonne Grundy, Anne Thornber, Mo Monk, and Angela Atkinson. Well done ladies, and well done Yvonne for organising a really lovely day.  

Elsie's Tour - Hollins Hall

Beautiful sunshine, beautiful smiles...what more you could ask for? Whilst charming the staff in the hotel with their 'back to front' stylish costumes, eleven Alderley ladies + one former AEGC member (Sue Watson kindly filling in for Sandra Smith) also graced the fairways and greens at Hollins Hall for an overnight golf break. Much laughter, many hills, plenty of golf and prizes galore, Elsie's Tour 2016 was deemed a great success and enjoyed by us all. PS (has anyone found my prize socks????) 

Quarter finals

The Business Ladies are to play in the quarter finals against Hazel Grove on Saturday 20th August at Birchwood Golf Club, 1.30 tee time.

The Shield B team will also be playing at Birchwood on Monday 22nd August, 10.30 tee time, to play their quarter final match against Warrington.

Good luck to everyone playing.

Lady President's Day

The challenge of the lush grass, changeable weather and a black and white marker post all added to the excitement of the competition today, which was hotly contested by a smiley group of ladies (miserable faces were threatened with a couple of extra penalty shots on their score.....). Honours went again to Mo Monk, in a rich seam of form, who won with a net 76 on count back from Angela Atkinson, who was delighted to be in the prizes at an Alderley major for the first time since joining. Third prize went to Liz McGuire who with a net 77, squeezed in front of Karen Pennington and Tracy Smith on a card play off. Julie Ricketts won the nearest the pins on the 4th/13th with Tracy Smith getting closest on the 6th/13th. Despite offering two goes to get on those holes a good proportion of the ladies were honest enough to admit that the green appeared rather elusive! Winner of the nine hole stableford competition was Helen Edwards who played nine with a dodgy hand (no more orange juice for you!!!) Thanks to Julie Ricketts and Sue Kendrick for organising the competition and for all the nice cards and good wishes I received from everyone.
