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.
