Winter Invitation


It was great to welcome 93 ladies today to play in our Winter Invitation, 38 of whom were guests invited by Chesfield Ladies.  5 local clubs: Barkway, Heydon Grange, Letchworth, Mill Green and Mt Pleasant entered teams of 4.

Starters, Gerry Clark and Brian Feaver, saw the Ladies off on the 1st & the 10th tees for this individual 9-hole Stableford Competition but only after the ladies had posed for photos that were enhanced with a few props, including ear muffs, a reindeer headband and a pink feather duster!!!  (Check out the slideshow to see them all.)

Playing 9 holes only on the front and the back meant that there were 2 competitions on the go at the same time, producing plenty of winners for the day.

Guest, nearest the pin on the front - Elaine Knobel-Forbes (Heydon Grange)
Member, nearest the pin on the front - Pauline Harrisson

Guest, nearest the pin on the back - June Harper (Knebworth)
Member, nearest the pin on the back - Gillian Treanor

Guest, longest drive on the front - Claudine Tate
Member, longest drive on the front - Sarah Faircliff

Guest, longest drive on the back - June Harper (Knebworth)
Member, longest drive on the back -  Margaret Wilson

Overall, in 3rd place was Kathy Dale on the front with 18 points (c/b) and Amanda Macknight on the back with 18 points (c/b).

In 2nd place was Jill Bransby on the front with 18 points (c/b) and Mandy Unger on the back with 18 points (c/b).

In 1st place was Alison Webber on the front with 19 points and Diane Chapman on the back with 20 points.

Congratulations to all of the winners and many thanks to the rest of the ladies for taking part.  Thanks too to our volunteers for ensuring that the day went smoothly: Tom Wood & Joan Meek for registration, Liz Cooke for selling raffle tickets and Gerry Clark and Brian Feaver, our starters and photographers.

We held our last raffle of the year in aid of CLIC Sargent and raised £391 - Fantastic!

Our last big occasion of this year will take place on Thursday 12th Dec, when we will play our Xmas Greensomes and celebrate the festive season with mulled wine and mince pies.  We will present Lucia Martinez from CLIC Sargent with a cheque for all we have raised this year.  Lucia is going to update us on how our money might be spent to help families of children with cancer.
