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.
