Ken Bird Trophy

The Juniors win after scoring 147 points. Well done.
The format was 6 players per team with 4 best stableford scores counting. Harry Cater scored 39 off a 5 handicap & Lucy Archer 37 off a 11 handicap, maybe we can get Lucy on the Ladies team next year! Second came the Men's team with 138 points, Ladies third with 137 (well done Patti scoring 38pts) and the Seniors 132.
We all enjoyed the day very much even though the Men would like to be creative with scoring/rules for next year!!!

Spring Meeting 2014

My first big day! The Spring Meeting last Thursday was held in glorious sunshine with 48 lady players.
Ed & the ground staff had the course all ready for us.  Joel, Clara & their team treated us to an excellent lunch. My congratulations to all those of you who won Cups, Trophies & the 35 Birdies!  Of course I couldn't have done all this without the help from the committee, Joan & Betty.  Thank you ladies.

The team in 1st place was Chris Bryce, Marion Dix, Jenny Feaver & Kathy Morris with a healthy 94points...well done.

Mail on Sunday National Golf Club Classic 2014

The Ladies Section team played their 4th round match of the Mail on Sunday National Golf Club Classic. The match was played at home against John O'Gaunt (with their caddies in tow). It was closely contested and was settled with the last putt on the 18th hole in the final game. Unfortunately, we eventually lost 3-2 overall thereby going out of the competition.

Nonetheless, our 2014 campaign had some great highlights including reaching the 3rd round for the first time and an unexpected but emphatic 4-1 away win at Knebworth. The Ladies who played this year were Julie Price, Kathy Dale, Lauren Pitcher, Virginia Chan, Pauline Harrison, Sarah Faircliff, and Marica Kelland. Many thanks to Julie for captaining the team and handling the logistics of organising our matches.

Good luck to the Men's Section who recently made it through to Round 5.

Hole In One! - Lauren Pitcher

Congratulations to Lauren Pitcher who recorded her first hole-in-one during today's O'Sullivan Cup competition. The impressive feat was achieved on the 3rd hole where Lauren landed a perfect iron shot onto the green which rolled straight into the cup much to the excitement of her teammates who could be heard cheering from several holes away! To mark the occasion Lauren kindly announced that she will be making a donation to the Ladies Captain's charity. Well done Lauren on adding yet another lady's name to the hole-in-one honours board.

O'Sullivan Cup

Congratulations to Sally Weekes, Annette Axelsson, Jackie Reid & Kathy Morris for winning with 96 points.  Well done Ladies - presentation at the Spring Meeting 15th May.
