Mr Captain's Prize to the Ladies
What a lovely day the ladies had on Tuesday. Mr Captain kindly changed the match to a stableford........ thank you Mr Captain.
Although it was very hot, there was a breeze which made playing more comfortable than on previous occasions. The course is crying out for water, as I'm sure everyone's garden is! The ground was rock hard and the balls were certainly bouncing- most of the time in the wrong direction, but it didn't matter because the mood on the course was upbeat.
We were served delicious Pimms at halfway by Mr Captain with as many chocolates as you wanted to eat, and Mr Captain had the opportunity to have a laugh and a chat with all the ladies, which went down well on both sides.
In the evening the ladies returned to the club for the winners presentation.
Lady Captain and Lady President were both presented with a bouquet of flowers and chocolates as a thank you for the work they do for the club.
Nearest the pin was won by Wendy Rule, nearest the line by Marion Hall and Helen Williams for winning the 9 hole competition. All received a box of golf balls and chocolates and then it was on to the competition winners.
In 3rd place was Olwen Davies, 36 points, who won a golf top, in second place was Sue Kendrick, 37 points, who won a golf carry bag but the winner with a great score of 39 points and getting her second handicap reduction in just a matter of weeks, was Julie Ricketts who won a pair of golf shoes. Well done to all the winners.
A very big thank you to Mr Captain for making it such an enjoyable day.
