Captain's Newsletter - 8 April 2019


Well, we all stayed dry on Saturday's Captains Drive In and here we all are! But where was this photograph taken? An Easter Egg for the first correct answer!! For those who couldn't attend, I managed to not disgrace myself at the critical point of the drive!! Not sure what could be said for the rest of my round, but hey, as we went down the first fairway, we all decided this was just a fun day of golf!! Needless to say, some teams took things very seriously indeed and I am please to say that two weekend ladies, Annabel S and Clare B were in the winning team, so well done to them! Juniors Hannah P and Junior Vice Captain Amelia F came away with the longest drive and the nearest to the pin in 2, great golf girls! It was good to see the nearest the pin on the 9th was taken by Lauren P, well done to her!

Thursday's game for last week was the April Club Medal (Maximum Score) competition. As you will see on HowDidiDo, new girl Olive came out on top in division 1 with a nett score of 75, closely followed by Hazel B who came in with nett 77 sharing 2nd place with Lauren P. The 2nd division was won by Katy Cook with a nett 70 and a much deserved handicap cut for her, snapping at her heels was Anne L, just one point behind (and a handicap cut too). Well done to all those who came in within their buffer zone, made kinder by a CSS of 73!

Tuesday's game of the week was the 1st round of the Stableford League. Several more rounds to go, so lets hope for some good weather on Tuesday 16th, when we get to play round 2!! Fingers crossed.


The Pearson Squad (above) have finished their 2018/19 season and now have to await the results of the outstanding matches within their group. A massive thanks to all the ladies who played and one special big thanks to Megan B for all the rallying, support and organising she has done over this season. Great Job!

It has been decided by the Committee that to assist in managing the competitions and moving people, which at times is necessary, we will be closing the on-line HowDidiDo element of the competition by 7 am on the Wednesdays before the games. If you wish to play after that time, please contact Lin and as always she will assist you in getting onto the list. Thank you.

I am told that the County Cards are now available from the Reception Desk. You will be aware that these cards provide you with a discount if you wish to play away from Chesfield, on most courses across the country! Very worthwhile collecting yours and there is no extra cost!

The season for the Par 3 competition began last month and many of our ladies join in with this, its an ideal opportunity to hone your short game skills! This competition is run by Jo Oliver, so do have a word with her if you are keen to join in. 

Finally, Nikki B has told me that there is a Room-share vacancy for the Away Weekend this year. If you have not yet decided to join us, please do have a word with myself or any of the Committee members. The trip is over the weekend of June 2nd to 4th, arriving Sunday late afternoon and departing after a second round of golf on Tuesday afternoon. This year we are going to Stoke by Nayland, Don't miss out!!

No newsletter next week friends (personal commitments), but I will get down to writing one again Easter Monday! If I don't see you in the meantime, enjoy the golf and the Easter Eggs!!

Yours
Margaret
Ladies Captain 2019
