Mail on Sunday
After some months of discussion with the Daily Mail concerning the early start of this competition, the course conditions and various other factors, the Daily Mail has decided not to run this competition in 2017 and there are doubts it will be run in 2018.
I know many members will be disappointed about this as we have progressed into the 6th and then a couple of years ago, the 7th round of this competition.
The Daily Mail Foursomes will continue as usual.
Final competition for 2016
This is traditionally our Christmas team competition where everyone plays wearing their Christmas hats and other glittery things.
It is played over 9 holes and the winners with an amazing 41 points were Gwyn, Liz G, Mo and Barbara, well done.
We all celebrated Karen's hole in one before sitting down to an excellent Christmas lunch provided by Chris and his team.
Lady Captain then presented Julie with her trophies as she had been away for the AGM. Julie has had a great year, winning the Fairway Trophy and the Medal Final trophy.
After a rousing rendition of The 12 Days of Christmas, ably led by Murial, everyone headed home.
At a well attended AGM, Lady Captain, Alison presented the trophies won during the year.
Alison said how much she had enjoyed her time in office and was delighted to have raised over £1000 for her nominated charity, The British Heart Foundation.
She thanked the committee for all their support and help during the year.
Lady Captain then presented Yvonne Grundy as the new Lady Captain for 2017 and passing over her badge of office.
In the absence of Lady President, Gwyn who was unfortuately unwell, Yvonne introduced Valerie as our Lady President for 2017.
Below are pictures of some of the prize winners.
Here are some of the ladies enjoying a glorious day in the autumn sunshine. Lady President's team managed to reverse the Opening sides result and win and received a potted plant each for their efforts. We enjoyed a lovely meal afterwards and welcomed some new faces to the section - Jo, Heather Janet and Helen, all full members ,Barbara, Jo and Tracy who are introductory members. I am sure they will soon feel at home and we look forward to them playing with us over the winter in the competitions and the roll ups.
Lady Captain and Lady President would like to thank everyone who played and /or attended the lunch for a very enjoyable day.
We could not have had a better day weather wise to end the summer season, it was just a shame my team did not win. But that is golf! Congratulations go to Lady President and her team- well done ladies.
I would also like to thank Claire Roberts and Lisa Burns for organising the event and Hilary for overseeing all the catering.
Congratulations to all the prize winners who were presented with a variety of prizes from the summer season.
Enjoy your winter golf.
Mr Presidents Day
This was won aptly by Gwyn, our Lady President, with 39 points. Olwen followed with 35 points and just behind her was Mary scoring 34 points. Celia pipped Karen to the nearest the pin by the smallest of margins and was delighted with her prize of a new visor and a strip of balls. Similar prizes were awarded to Anne Thornber for the longest drive on the 12th and nearest the pin in three on the 18th was won by Gwyn, who did par the hole...
A very good day was had by all and we were all very well looked after by Mr President.
