Just to keep you up to date with what has been going on in the Ladies Section over the past few weeks.
Well done to Fran and Liz (and their partners) for winning the England Golf Mixed Club qualifier at Stover with an impressive 87 points. They now go forward to the national finals at Woodhall Spa in August. We wish them all the very best.
Fran and Lyn were not so fortunate in the Doris Wills Little, losing to Thurlston at Bovey Tracy.
The Presidents Team have continued their winning streak having won all four of their matches. The next match is on Friday 16 June and we wish them all the very best for this. Well done to the team.
Our first Sheelah Creasy match was called off due to bad weather. This was against East Devon at East Devon; the rain was relentless and the course was closed due to flooding. We played Wrangaton at home on 19 May in which we had a resounding 6/1 win. Well done to all - and let's hope we can replicate this when we play them at Wrangaton on 12 June.
Our first Annodata Matchplay event was against Fingle Glenn at Fingle. Annodata is a 5 person matchplay team event which the Club entered us for. It is, I am told, similar to the Mail on Sunday matchplay. It was a hard fought game, however, we did win and now go forward to the next round which will be played against Teignmouth, at home, on 14 June. Well done to the team that played against Fingle Glen, and good luck to the team playing on 14 June.
Sue Barr and I played the first round of the DCLVGA knock out competition against Wrangaton at Stover. We won on the 19th hole!! Sue played a tremendous round and we both thoroughly enjoyed the experience. As most of you will know, Sue slipped a few weeks ago and broke her leg, so is now out of action for some time; because of this, Annet joined me for the second round against Churston at Exeter GCC. I am pleased to say we both played really well and won the match 6 and 5.
Downes Crediton hosted the DCLGA Bronze meeting on 6 June in the most horrendous weather conditions. Squally winds and torrential rain for the majority of the morning made playing very difficult; the sun did come out later in the day, but the high winds continued. That said, Downes Crediton ladies acquitted themselves very well with Penny and Joyce coming 2nd and 3rd respectively in Division 1, both with 31 points, but Penny winning out on the back 9. Ying only just missed out on the prizes. Division 2 saw Sue Bond claiming 3rd prize. Very well done to you all.
I am pleased to say that Fran got a hole in one on the 3rd on Thursday 8 June - well done Fran and many thanks for the Prosecco!!
The Ladies Captain's Away Day at Oake Manor is on the Tuesday 27 June.
