Finally, we were able to host an event and what a pleasure it was. Fifty-six ladies from seventeen clubs met at Belton Park Golf Club one year on from our original booking. The committee were all involved with setting up for the day with everyone working towards the same goal to make it a good day out for all. The players enjoyed a tea or coffee with a bacon cob on arrival.
Many thanks to all those involved in running the event and to Belton Park for making us so welcome and hosting the day with efficiency and friendliness.
There was a two tee start with President Helen Buckingham seeing the players off from the first tee and immediate Past President Glenda Yeldham from the tenth tee. Glenda and Helen shared the day as Glenda had made the original booking for this venue but had missed out on hosting the event during 2020 due to the Coronavirus.
The AMAM, which was drawn from entered pairs to make a four, took place in dry, overcast weather and the challenging course played long, with fast greens. The players were watched by the deer which roam freely on the course.
The prize giving followed a delicious buffet (which was served to each table) and choice of dessert.
The three winning teams on the day were:
First Place and Winners of the President's Quaich's
Helena Woodward and Sandra Baum of Hinckley 80 points
Sue Fletcher and Sally Hollis of Lutterworth
Elaine Wesley and Pat Sutton of Glen Gorse 79 points
Leona Harris of Cosby and Loraine Washington of Scraptoft
Kim Griffin and Christine Walker of Beedles Lake 76 points
Bubbles Emmett and Liz Toney of Lutterworth
Thank you to the all the ladies who played at Belton Park and we hope that you enjoyed your day.
The abiding memory of the day was of happy smiling ladies enjoying each other’s company and being able to take part in an event within the Covid restrictions.
We hope that our plans for the rest of the season are also able to go ahead.
