Silver Jubilee Jug

The Silver Jubilee Jug was played for this week. A fantastic celebration by the Ladies' Section to commemorate 25 years since the official opening of Chesfield Downs Golf & Country Club.

We presented our Guests of Honour with their engraved gifts to recognise their importance as Founder members of our club - Madeleine Fielder, Lorraine Palmer and Pat Pollendine.


A huge thank you to Jackie Reid for her help with the super decoration of our Conservatory and also to Joel and his team for the anniversary cake – collectively cut by all our previous Ladies' Captains.

In 1st place and winners of the Silver Jubilee Jug were Lin Goodey and Hazel Brunnen. We had a tie for 2nd place but on countback from Alison Webber and Di Alford, 2nd place went to Mandy Unger and Marion Dix. Congratulations to our winners. 

Winners - Lin Goodey & Hazel Brunnen
To add to the entertainment, I had set everyone a tricky task, by asking them to wear something with a silver theme. Some of our members went to extreme lengths to rise to this challenge.

We had Tin Men, Every Cloud has a Silver Lining, silver Marshals, silver top hats, silver flappers, my own astronaut suit, and two very different versions of Silver Service. Lots of photographs were taken and can be seen on our website.  Click here to see the 2016 Gallery.

A collection was taken for our two Silver Service Waitresses, Hilary and Jenny, which produced 32pence, 3 buttons and 1 euro – don’t spend it all at once !

But the best dressed accolade went to Patti Vincent and Brenda Harrington for their amazing silver service Fork and Spoon outfits. And yes, Patti did drive to the golf club ready dressed, with the top down on her convertible (it was the only way she could fit in it) – causing much hilarity in the rush hour traffic and one driver to call out “There’s a fork in the road!!”

Inter-Club Matches

Tuesday – Greensomes. Patti Vincent and Megan Bonner were our winners this week who just pipped Jenny Feaver and Hilary Clark into 2nd place on countback.

Our Pearson Team played magnificently at Essendon Golf Course this week with some brilliant wins and extremely close losses. Five games went all the way to the 18th hole – We just lost out to Essendon by 4 games to 3. We are definitely poised for a win!!
