So many people to thank, - green keepers, catering staff, management, Nikki and Olive, our auction extraordinaire, and all the volunteers. Half way house was indeed a delight with so many beautiful cakes/fruit/savoury 'yummy in my tummy' options! And thanks to all the gents who came in and ate up all the leftovers, leaving very generous donations to our charity. Last but not least an enormous SHOUT OUT to our lovely Chesfield Ladies Section and their guests who never cease to amaze me on how kind and generous you all are!

Scratch Team
Report from Team Captain Sarah. ‘This weeks scratch match was at home to Ashridge A. Luckily the thunderstorms had gone away but that didn’t stop us getting wet whilst furthest away from the clubhouse! Still, not daunted by the weather the Chesfield girls gained a very well deserved 5 - 0 win. Amelia sank a birdie putt at 18 to win her match and the rest of us did ok too! Well done team, fab whitewash!

Well done ladies great news!
