Lady Captains Update - 2021

Hello Ladies

It's brilliant to be back on the golf course although I can't say the golf is brilliant! Keep practising is the motto!

Tuesday Roll up.

Starting Tuesday 13th April in accordance with the COVID rules we will meet up outside in a suitably socially distanced manner to draw for teams.  Hopefully under cover on the 10th tee.
We will  have team competitions over the front nine so as to be all inclusive, whilst also realising that some ladies like to go on to play 18 holes.  Maybe those ladies can organise their playing partners for the back 9 before we set off.
The draw for teams will take place at  9.45 am and it is important that we are ready to start our first team at 10.00 am.

Founders Vase  

Just a reminder that this long standing knockout competition is taking place this year and you can sign up now on the website under competitions if you go to the 29th April it is listed there and you can add your name if you haven't already done so. Just a reminder under the competition rules the matches are played off full playing handicap but under our club rules for this competition the maximum handicap difference is 18 shots, this still stands even with our new handicaps.

Coffee Morning

This is next Thursday 15th April. As we are still under COVID rules we aren't allowed inside the clubhouse but hopefully the new “gazebo” will be in place on the 10th tee and the new tables & chairs will be set up. The coffee & cake will be served before the golf so please arrive in plenty of time. We would like you to take a seat, maximum six to a group and Vanessa & her staff will take your order for the coffee & cake which will then be served to you. There won't be a draw this time but we will have a table of jigsaws on sale.

Posters

As you know the posters for the Opens run by Devon clubs are usually distributed at the DevonGolf annual meeting in January but this was held on zoom this year so Paul Cloke arranged for clubs to send their posters by email & he has then sent them to all Devon Clubs. We now have a folder of all the Devon Opens 2021 in the Pro Shop that you can ask to look at and there is also a folder with the Ladies & Mixed Open posters in the Ladies changing room, unfortunately you're unable to access that at present but will be able to when restrictions are eased. Most of these Opens are also on the Golf Empire website www.golfempire.co.uk 

Western Morning News Foursomes North & East

This county competition is being held at Holsworthy this year on Wednesday 4th August. Many of you will remember that we won this prestigious competition the last time it was held in 2019. It would be really great if we could do it again so we are hoping that as many of you as possible will sign up. Find a partner then enter via the DevonGolf website www.devongolf.org.uk go to competitions then scroll down to 4th August and enter with your partner.
