The halfway house was 'manned' by the Club Captain, Nel McGuiness who kindly provided a wonderful array of refreshments, together with lots of cold water and ice lollies to keep everyone hydrated. Jim Worsley, the Club Chairman, set up and ran the putting competition and our ladies on the welcome desk sold raffle tickets that helped raise £150 for the club charities, Dorothy House and Fair Frome. Once the golf was completed, the ladies sat down to a well earned two-course meal.
