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.
