The Ladies section held their AGM on Tuesday 14th November at 7 pm. Marion Underhill who unfortunately was unable to attend the meeting sent in her Lady Captain's report which was read by Lucy Difazio. Marion has had a very difficult year with a very unwell husband, but she still managed to attend all the main events throughout the year. She was very pleased to be able to report that nearly £3000 has been raised this year by the ladies for the club charity, Dorothy House. The cheque will be presented to Steph Cox of Dorothy House on 19th December at our mince pie competition.
Lorraine Collings who is our new Lady Captain for 2018 was presented with her jersey. Marie Cusworth is the new Vice-Captain. Other new officers that were elected are Carol Marquiss as secretary and Anne Regler as handicap secretary. Pat Pitt and Loes de Kleuver were elected onto the committee.
All the 2017 medal and stableford winners were presented with their prizes. (Prize winners photo in the gallery)
Last of the Summer Whine
The ladies enjoyed a fun Last of the Summer Whine competition recently. The event raised money for our Dorothy House chairty by ladies paying a fine for having a good whine during their round of golf. The competition was a Snakes and Ladders format, where stableford points scored on 'ladder' holes are doubled, but if no score is made on a 'snake hole', all points scored are then lost. Some of the ladies managed to hold all their points and some brilliant scores were achieved:
Jackie Pudney won with an amazing 57 points
Lorraine Collings came second with 52 points
Pat Pitt came third with 49 points
Some ladies who were very unlucky to lose all their points on the 18th hole were rewarded with sweetie prizes.
Val Stringer Cup
The Val Stringer competition took place on 31st August and was followed by a farewell lunch hosted by Connie Gilchrist. Sadly Connie is leaving the club and moving to London. She has been a member for many years and during that time has contributed a huge amount to the Ladies section. It was very fitting that Connie should be part of the winning team. Thank you Connie, you will be missed!
