Last Thursday the Lady Captain's side took on the Lady Secretary's team in a foursomes format. It ended up being a draw at 5 points each and everyone who took part received a prize, which is fitting for such a friendly match. Judging by the photo below the Captains certainly seemed to be having a good time.
The following day was the Ladies Turkey Trot, which is a nine hole competition for members and visitors. Groups were teeing off pretty solidly from 0900 - 1500. Although I don't know the winners, I do know that the main organisers Min Fishwick and Mary Cockbain worked very hard on the day and in the lead up to the event to see it all ran smoothly. Well done Min & Mary!
On Sunday 25 of our ladies ventured off to Rudding Park, Harrogate, for their annual Two Day, One Night Golfing Trip. Helen Allott and Gwynneth Bramwell organised this one and they can be seen below with the lady captain Val Nelstrop. We can then see some of our intrepid lady golfers in the buggy on the next photo. After a wet and gloomy start, the weather picked up as the sun came out later on. As Helen said of the trip "there were lots of prizes, good food and even a little golf!"
The new Golf Club Captains were announced on Thursday for the 2017/18 campaign - assuming all goes well at the AGM! In case you've been living in a cave and don't know who they are, it's Cliff Wright and Pat Jefferies that will be picking up the reigns.
They can be seen pictured and both have said how proud and excited they are to be given the honour. Good luck to them both!
Away from the golf course, and I think this is terrific, we have TV stars at the golf club! Six of our members entered a team in the quiz show "Eggheads". Their team name is called the Flying Divots and the episode will be aired on BBC2 at 6pm on Thursday 27th October. The photos below are as follows. The first is of Paul Simpson in makeup (he was obviously there for quite some time..... boom, boom!), the second is the team in the green room and the final one is of the team on set. The result is still a secret so you'll just have to tune in to find out!!
