Ghost Player clinches it on Lady Captain’s Day

Winners Janet Bentley, Julia Brown, Bettyne Norton and Karen Middleton

On an incredibly hot and windless Wednesday 12th August, 31 ladies set out for a challenging 18 holes of golf on Lady Captain’s Day.  The Lady Captain, Jackie Fisher, had organised a fun competition and in honour of the Glorious Twelfth, not only was the longest drive on this hole, but two sneaky forfeit bunkers as well.  The Halfway House provided a welcome rest for many, with cakes and Prosecco (or an elderflower presse) for the players, but a few were unable to complete all 18 holes on such a humid day.  The fairways were running long, but the greens were in superb condition and good putting was rewarded on this smooth surface.

A wonderful quiche and salad lunch awaited all and the presentation took place in a socially distanced fashion in the Clubhouse.The winners were grateful to their ghost player who dovetailed well on most holes where 2 scores from 4 were to count except on the 1st and 18th where all 4 scores were needed.

1st:  Julia Brown, Karen Middleton, Bettyne Norton and ghost player, Janet Bentley with 88 points2nd: Joan Allen, Pat Barnes, Maureen McCall and Glynis Breward with 84 points3rd: Sally Hudson, Chris Cook, Sue Stimson and ‘Drina Terzza with 80 points.Longest drive on the 12th was Dee Hughes and closest the pin on the 14th was Chris Cook.
