Captain's Newsletter - 30 May 2021

What a change a week can make, glorious sunshine was enjoyed by all on Thursday in the Ping Pairs Betterball/Margaret Gentle Vase. Congratulations go to Debbie F and Kathy M for coming in with an amazing 42 points, great score. We await the results to find out if it was enough to qualify for the Grand Final to be held at Thonock Park, Lincolnshire on 6th September! Good luck ladies!

Mixed Ping Pairs

Saturday saw the first ever Mixed Ping Pairs competition. Fantastic to see so many pairs out there (22 to be precise) competing for a place at the National Finals to be held at Thonock Park, Lincolnshire on September 7th. Some very impressive scores on the day. Congratulations go to Kathy and John D coming in with 44 points. Will it be enough to qualify? Fingers crossed it is. Well done guys!

Scratch Team Report By; Team Captain Jackie Reid

Sunshine, rain and thunder greeted us on this Spring day for our return match away at Harpenden Common. A lovely warm welcome by all and a very interesting course more than made up for the weather. Unfortunately the result was the reverse of our 4-1 home win. Well done to Linda on halving her match in only her second scratch appearance. Her outstanding performance in competitions recently secured her place today. Lovely scones, jam & cream followed by a fruit platter was enjoyed by all. Something that must be quite unique greeted us on the third hole - a cricket pitch ! Yes, a cricket pitch. Every other Sunday at 2pm the sound of leather on willow can be heard. The hole reverts to a par 3 and if you do happen to land on the wicket you do get a free drop!

Friendly Team

Saturday 5th June see our Friendly Team in action at home. Chesfield Downs v Colmworth. Good luck ladies.

This is the Main event of our year! Many thanks to those of you that have signed up to help but we still need a few more!

Please sign up on the poster on the notice board opposite the ladies changing room.

General Information

First Aid: We still have spaces for the first aid course on the Thursday 24th June after golf (approximately 3pm). The cost of the session is £5.00 pp which covers the cost of the trainer. If you wish to attend please sign up on the poster, on the notice board (opposite the ladies locker room). Payment to Chesfield Downs Ladies Section: CDLS 40-28-14 81769642

The Creek: Otherwise known as the 'Ditch' - The integrity of the ditch and the challenges it brings to playing our course are important. However, there are many members (and guests) who walk with their trolleys through the ditch and are subsequently eroding the banks and destroying the ditch itself. This is particularly evident on the 10th (by the dry pond) and the 14th! Please ONLY use the bridges to cross.

Sunshine: Looks like a few weeks of sunshine ahead. Although this is very welcomed please remember to bring your suncream/fluids/hat when you play. To avoid dehydration don't forget to prepare for your round by taking on plenty of fluids the day before you play and enjoy the good weather. Looking forward to a sunny week!

See you on the course!

Kind regards
Pauline Humphrey
Lady Captain 2021
