On Thursday 7th June 44 Ladies played in a 3-ball Alliance in the morning, and 36 in the 9-hole Texas Scramble in the afternoon. 16 former lady members attended the cream tea in the afternoon. This was a successful, happy day with themes of elephants and the beach with refreshments in the beach hut.
The 3-ball Alliance winners in the morning were: Lorraine Watkins, Hils Lane and Ros Morris.
The Texas Scramble in the afternoon was won by: Sian Lewis, Sue Simms and Katie Buchan (front 9) and Liz Lawrence, Sue Stewart and Jean Simmie (back 9).
The raffle raised £320 for the three charities. Golf was followed by dinner and prize giving in the evening.
Thank you firstly to my Vice-Captain Linda Strange who worked hard all day, also to the competition secretary and assistant, Jane Jones and Pat Robins, the starters, Philip Morley and Trevor Scarrott, to the staff, especially Robbie, Michele and Dorothy, to Men’s Vice-Captain, Paul Baker who provided very smart start sheets and to the Men’s Captain, Brian England who surprised me by appearing to wait on the ladies before and at dinner. In addition thanks particularly for the donations of raffle prizes including a golf bag and beautiful hand made quilted items. I was overwhelmed by the generosity of the ladies who bought raffle tickets and gave me lovely presents and cards. A day to remember!
