Captain's Newsletter - 2 March 2020

After a much needed break in a hot and sunny Lanzarote and missing the two storms, I returned home to RAIN, RAIN and more RAIN. Then a morning of snow which stopped us playing the Megan Bonner Par 3 so not a lot of golf being played since my return.

It is great to see our club renovations developing, with a super new state of the art gym already open and lot more ladies seem to be using it.

This weekend will see the opening of the new and improved studio along with the reception area and pro shop.

Winter Eclectic ResultsAfter six rounds out of seven being played of the Eclectic the presentation and lunch went ahead despite us not being able to play the Megan Bonner Par 3 competition beforehand. 26 ladies attended, eagerly awaiting the final results after weeks of speculation.

Division one winner was Sarah F on 47 a very close runner up Vicky T on 48

Division two winner was Julie R on 53 the battle for runner up was Mary H on countback from Helen L on 56.

Well done ladies some great golf going on for some regardless of the weather.

Tuesday 9 Hole Golf
The last of these competitions have now been played with our first 18 hole competition on Tuesday 3rd March weather permitting.

Over the last few weeks the ladies have played 5 clubs and a putter with Jackie S taking first place and Annette G hot on her heels.

The following week a wish, gift and joker was played with one of our newer members Ann K winning with 21 points well played, with Julie R runner up on 18 points.

Last week 25th February saw a very wet course with holes 6 & 7 closed and carry only, the pairs competition was changed to an individual stableford, well done to all the ladies who would not be beaten by the weather and played to the twelfth hole , very close scoring Ladies Vicky T 17 points and Anne L 16 points. While a few of us did the Par 3 instead.

Weekend Results
Unfortunately the weekends have been hit hardest with course closures over the last few weeks, only one game has been played with only one of our ladies bravely going out and being looked after by the men, well done Caroline K for venturing out onto the course when all the other ladies decided not too, did they stay in bed??

Scorecards via Smartphones Can I remind everyone if you enter your score on your smartphone you will still need to swipe your card in the normal way to have your score accepted.

Team And Event PhotosAny ladies not wishing to have their photo published on our website or newsletter please be aware it is your responsibility to not include yourself in a team or event photo.

With the weather so unpredictable at the moment and course closures we have rescheduled the Megan Bonner Par 3 to Tuesday April 14th

Thanks to Lin who has moved the start sheet to this day which will include anyone who has confirmed that they can still play. Sign up will open in the normal way three weeks before for those ladies who were not signed up but find they can now play.

It's a lovely sunny day as I sit here writing this newsletter so here's hoping the sun stays out so we can play some golf this week.

Roll on Spring
Happy Golfing 🏌🏻‍♀️
Rogie Taylor, Ladies' Captain
