Captain's Newsletter - 15 August 2021

This week saw the Ladies compete in the 'Palmer Cup' Ladies v Seniors. It was a lovely occasion and played in great sprit.
  • NTP for the ladies went to vice captain Kathy
  • NTP for the seniors went to Stuart K
Unfortunately, Friday 13th was not to be the ladies lucky day, however, we were very privileged to have David Palmer attend to present the 'Palmer Cup' to the seniors section to celebrate their 4-3 closely fought victory. Everyone enjoyed this inter-section event and we look forward to next year when its definitely the ladies turn to win back the cup!


Scratch Team
Report from Team Captain Sarah. 'On a good day for golf the Scratch team took on the ladies from Porters Park at home. Although the greens presented us with a challenge it was the same for us all and Porters Park perhaps found them a bit more to their liking than us in the home team. The matches were close and the opposition good fun to play against but Porters won 4-1. Thanks to all the team and on her return to the team from injury, congrats go to Sally who won her match.’

Well done ladies some great scores!

TopTracer Challenge
Many thanks to all ladies who have very kindly given up their time to monitor this challenge and raise funds for our charity this year,

We are still providing you with the chance to win a £25 voucher till Tuesday 17th August if you have missed us on the range. Open to everyone, big or small, as you can see from young golfer Toby enjoying his introduction to the game.

Well done Toby. Good Drive!!
