Lady Captains Update

I hope you are all still appreciating this lovely summer weather, and enjoying some good golf.  

Lady Captain’s Away day at Honiton on the 17th July was a very enjoyable day, and we were very lucky with the weather. We played some good golf (2 scores to count) first prizes to Trish, June Mitchell and Linda with 79 points, second prizes to Di Botterill, Sue Sparham  and Viv Bailey with 75 points, followed closely with third prizes going to Fran, June Skuse and myself.  After golf we enjoyed a delicious meal and lots of chat!  Thanks to everyone who joined me to make this a very enjoyable day.

Thank you again for the wonderful day I had on Captain’s day on 26th July, and for all your support, good wishes,  presents and lovely cards which are still displayed at home.  There were some very good scores on the day (1/2/3 competition) helped along by our very own Barry and Devon’s help on the 16th and 18th holes, or was it the glass of Pims!  The 3rd prizes went to Margaret, Ruth and Anne with 80 points, 2nd to Lyn, Rickie and Trish with 81 points and 1st and winners of the Ivor Doble trophy to Di Parsons, Sue Bond and Viv Jordan with 89 points.  Nearest the pin was won by Rickie on the 3rd hole, and nearest the Gin on the 6th by Sue Bonner.  It was so good to see all the ladies who were able to attend having a fun day, and enjoying a delicious meal together.  Many thanks for making my day very special.

WARREN CROCUS GREENSOMES  - Ying Wong and Fran Shrubsole (silver) and Rebecca Aven and Sue Barr (bronze) will go forward to play at The Warren on the 17th September.  

WESTERN MORNING NEWS (Foursomes)   Our club entered four teams on the 2nd July at Portmore.  Sue Bond and Sue Jackson 7th (33 points), Lyn Parry and Sue Barr 8th (32 points), Fran Shrubsole and Ying Wong 9th (32 points) and Doreen Warren and Marina Caston (25 points).  The weather was lovely, the course was tough, but it was an enjoyable day.  Portmore won with 36 points.

Thank you to all the ladies who have played this year and for achieving a win in all the matches in such magnificent style getting us through to the Quarter Finals.  We can certainly hold our heads up high!  Unfortunately we lost against Fingle Glen 4 to 3 in the Quarter Final, but we made a valiant effort, and there were some very close run matches.  Thank you so much ladies for all your support and hard work, and also to the caddies who joined us on the day giving support and friendship. Here’s to next year....
