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.
