Scratch Match – Another fantastic result for the Scratch Team against Harpenden this week. An excellent 4 ½ : ½ WIN with Sarah chipping in a birdie from the bunker on the 18th to achieve the half in her match. This makes 3 wins from 3 matches this season. BRILLIANT !!!

LADIES AWAY WEEKEND - At the excellent Marriot Forest of Arden

Fabulous 27 degree hot and sunny weather was such a fabulous contrast from the 12 degrees of a few days before. The tough Championship Arden course faced us on day one. Pairs betterball runners up were Pat Ward and Pauline Humphrey. The winners were our brilliant organisers - Jackie & Sarah.

Sarah Faircliff won the longest drive both days – absolutely huge drives (and on the fairway too, Sarah!) Nearest the pins were won by Hazel Brunnen and Brigid Kerr. Day two was individual Stableford, with Lauren Pitcher taking 1st place and Christine Newcombe in 2nd on countback from Patti Vincent and Kathy Dale. Lots of fun and laughter was had over the three days. Thank you to Sarah Faircliff and to Jackie Reid for arranging such a wonderful weekend. Everyone had a fantastic time and I am really looking forward to next year!

We all said our sad farewells to Brenda Harrington, who is moving to Shropshire. We will miss her smiling face, her thoughtfulness - and her joking comments.

Kathy Dale, Ladies' Captain
