Captain's Newsletter - 26 January 2020


Well it's finally stopped raining whoopee!

We're now managing to get out on the course with all holes playable, it's still a little soggy which makes for challenging golf for some but clearly not for others as these competition results show.

Tuesday 14th January in Double the Odds competition Sarah F came in with a very impressive 31 points and not too far behind Julie R took second place on countback from Kathy D with 24 points.

The weekend saw the Turkey Trot finally being played on a very wet course that had been closed for a number of days, 77 players went out so a great result for Jackie S who gained second place with 31 points well done Jacky, doing it for the Ladies.

Tuesday 21st January a game to play with a friend Pairs Multiplyer as both need to score on the same hole in order to gain points, not like my partner and I we scored on alternate holes great if your playing Betterball! Diane C and Jackie S won with a very decent 26 points with Margaret G and Julie P taking second place with 19 points.

Thursday saw 42 Ladies go out in the 3rd round of the Winter Eclectic, did you better your score? Still 4 rounds to go.

Macbeth is showing at the Queen Mother theatre on 26th February 7.30 pm if you would like to join a group of Ladies who are going the tickets are £8 please contact Jackie R for a ticket.

Away Weekend at Staverton Park A place has become available due to one of the Ladies having to pull out which has left Olive without a room mate if there is anyone who would like to join us on our fun filled weekend please speak to Olive or contact one of the organisers Nikki B or Nicola A.

Captain's Newsletter - 12 January 2020


Happy New Year.

Welcome to my first Newsletter.

Well here we are in 2020 a new decade. With renovations well underway our club is set to become an even better club to belong to and I'm honoured to be Ladies Captain in such an important year at Chesfield. There obviously will be some disruption but it is temporary and will be worth it in the end as most of you will have seen from the plans displayed in the bar area.

All of our competitions including Tuesday's are now on IG for you to sign up to in the comfort of your own home. As a lot of you experienced on Thursday you will need your silver club company card or PIN number to sign into Thursday and weekend competitions.

This week saw our first competitions on a very wet and muddy course, nevertheless it didn't stop a good number of ladies going out this week.

Tuesday was an individual Stableford over 9 holes, the weather was kind to us with plenty of sunshine and blue sky. Julie R won with 17 points on countback with myself as runner up, let's keep that up.

Thursday saw the start of the Winter Eclectic on tough course conditions after more rain over night. That didn't seem to stop some good first round gross scores with Pat W with 58 in division 1 and Mary H with 64 in division 2 so the bar is set Ladies we have our work cut out to better our scores over the next six weeks weather permitting.

On Saturday 5 Ladies played in the mixed Winter League individual bogey against the course, the men took the lead in this competition with Nikki B holding the best score for the Ladies.

Well done to all who ventured out to play this week, it felt good to get back to normality.

Ladies for your information there will be a Ladies committee meeting on Thursday 23rd January, also I would like to hold an EGM on Thursday 20th February after the last round of the Eclectic with regards the changes to the Ladies Constitution, I would appreciate that as many of you as possible could stay for this please.

Finally I would just like to say thank you all for your kind support over this recent difficult time for me.

Happy Golfing 🏌🏻‍♀️
