President's Day Thursday 22nd June 2023
President's Day is planned at Rutland Water GC on Thursday 22nd June 2023. Our President Pam Hall, has booked this event at her home club so that she has more flexibility to also include festivities to commemorate the 50th anniversary on the day.
This is always a popular event at which players compete as drawn pairs in a team of 4 playing an AM AM format. Entries have been coming in since January so we are hoping for a good turnout
There will be a two-tee start which will enable us to condense the time that it takes for everyone to enjoy the course before sitting down for a two course buffet meal which will be followed by a presentation.
Rutland Water is always a popular venue with stunning views and tricky greens. Please come and join the festivities and support Pam on this special President's Day event.
Spring Meeting Monday 24th April 2023
The Spring Meeting held on 24th April at Kibworth GC was well attended with 33 teams entered in the 3-ball alliance competition for the Wendy Johnson trophy.
The weather in the run up to the event was very wet and unfortunately 3 teams had to drop out as buggies were not allowed on the course. This did not stop one group of ladies who with a combined age of 244 played 18 holes returning with a respectable score on the day, well done!
The weather on the day was fair and much better than forecasted. However, it was decided to give full handicap allowance as the course was playing long and despite the valiant attempts and an early start by the green keepers they had not been able to mow the rough and the final scores were reflective of this.
The winners of the Wendy Johnson Trophy were Jo Pepper, Cathy Russell and Suzanne Smith of Cosby GC with 67 points.
2nd Place: Sue Clarke, Sara Glover and Pam Hall of Rutland Water GC with 66 points
3rd Place: Lynda Bramley, Lynda Dunne and Sue Young of Beedles Lake GC with 65 points
4th Place: Julia Dunkley, Chris O'Neill and Ruth Palmer of Kibworth GC with 65 points (OCB)
5th Place: Helen Adams-Brown of Hinckley, Anne Knight and Judy Matharu of Lutterworth with 64 points
Nearest the pin on the 9th Loraine Washington of Scraptoft
Nearest the pin on the 15th Pam Hall of Rutland Water
The President Pam Hall thanked the organiser Julie Dawson for an extremely well organised day and also the committee who all assisted on the day.
The two starters Jeff and Phil were each given a sleeve of balls as a thank-you on the day.
