2023 Captain and Vice-Captain Event at Birstall GC

Twenty-four ladies played in the 9-hole AM AM on a lovely sunny day at Birstall golf club on Friday 16th September. 

This is a popular event that brings together the incoming captains of 2024 for the first time. It is a good opportunity to meet and put faces to names and to confirm or arrange fixtures in the diary for the coming year. Unfortunately, numbers were slightly down this year due to illness & operations. Our treasurer Elaine Wesley made up the first team on the day.

Birstall provided an excellent course followed by a light lunch of jacket potatoes and salad.

Merchandising was available on the day & our secretary, Lynda Bramley, advised the ladies about the Association.

The winners with a magnificent score of 50 points were: Julia Booth & Alison Mullin from Charnwood Forest & Helen McVeigh & Sharon Scott of Lingdale

2nd Place with another excellent score of 49 points were: Jane Long & Jayne Mansfield of Willesley Park, Sue Ker & Jane Hales of Rutland Water

Pam Hall, Lady President presented the winners with some 50th Anniversary merchandise a towel, ball marker and pencil.

Congratulations to all who attended and made the day so special.

President's Day Thursday 22nd June 2023

On a very hot day 76 ladies, from 20 clubs, played in the Presidents Day AM-AM competition at Rutland Water Golf Club. The drawn pairs provide a great opportunity to play with ladies from other clubs and make new friendships.

With a two-tee start all the teams were able to tee off in just over an hour. Our President Pam Hall welcomed and saw ladies off from the first tee and she thanked two past presidents, Jenny Martin and Glenda Yeldham for their help on the 10th tee and throughout the day.

Rutland Water is Pam’s home club, so we were lucky enough to be able to use the marquee, which was decorated in celebration of our 50th anniversary, where a fantastic buffet was served after the golf. The two-tee start meant that ladies were able to sit down for their meal almost together and we were able to conduct the presentation of prizes on the day.  

The winners of the President’s quaiches scoring a fabulous 83 points were Andrena Porter of Lutterworth and Sue Barker of Whetstone (who were also in the winning team last year) accompanied by Judy Matharu of Lutterworth and Caroline Butcher of Rutland Water. Well done Ladies.

Thanks go to the Greens staff who presented the course, particularly the bunkers, in great condition after the recent thunderstorms, the catering and bar staff and the hospitality of Rutland Water

Thank you, Ladies, for all your support.
