Ladies v Senior Men

Unfortunately, we were thwarted by the weather today.  Both the Ladies' and Senior Men's teams turned out to play each other at matchplay but in light of the torrential rain there was a unanimous decision to call it off and settle for an honourable draw. Once the result was agreed, we all settled down to drinking coffee and socialising, which was a very enjoyable way to spend the morning.  The teams will meet next on Wednesday 14th August to battle it out formally for the prized Palmer Cup.  May the best team win!!!

Ken Bird Trophy 2013

The Ladies, the Men and the Juniors fought it out on the golf course today for the prized Ken Bird Trophy.  The Ladies, who came close second to the Juniors last year, were hopeful that this would be their year, however, the Juniors and the Men had their eyes on the trophy too.  The Ladies managed a credible 122 points between them but were beaten by both the Juniors and the Men, with the Men taking the trophy with a massive 143 points!  Jenny Feaver had the highest score for the Ladies (33 points), just beating Chris Newcombe on count back.  Well done to the Men's team and everyone who played.  Next year .............

Bev Hattersley, Sarah Faircliff, Jackie Reid and Yvonne Woods were the winning team of four and each of them was presented with a bottle of champagne. Well done! Thank you to all the Ladies for your support.

Ladies Away Weekend

28 ladies headed to Norfolk for their annual away weekend.  The weather stayed fine for both rounds on the beautiful Dunston Hall course.

The theme for this year's entertainment was 'hats'.  Each lady sported a hat of her choice and brought it to life with her own unique performance at the dinner table!!!  It was all great fun and seemed to be the highlight of the holiday for some of the holidaymakers from The University of The Third Age who were also staying at the hotel and shared the restaurant with the ladies.
