Ladies' Invitation Day
21 guests representing 14 different clubs played in the Ladies Invitation Day on Tuesday, 11th July.
The weather had changed from a brief steamy, humid spell and the players appreciated the cooler temperature. Although there was a little rain during play it did not dampen spirits or performance, with Sue Batchelor & Penny Beslee (Wildernesse GC) shooting a hot 42 points to win the day.
This was by no means a breeze as right behind them on 41 points were Sarah Brice & Steff Figgis (Faversham GC), edging out Regan Curtin & Amanda Langer (Nazeing GC) on countback. The guest prize for nearest the pin went to Cherry Figgis (Faversham GC).
We received many compliments on the day about the course, the clubhouse and our hospitality.
The ever-popular Half Way Hut, ably looked after by Mary Hills and Joan Penhaligan, was once again groaning with “goodies” provided by the Ladies Section, whilst Maureen Hawker’s beautiful flower display and table decorations set the scene in the lounge.
45 hungry ladies sat down to a super meal (thanks Bernie) with Wendy and Miss Mandy keeping us “well watered”. A lovely atmosphere and much laughter followed.
A big thank you to everyone involved for their time and support in providing food; Jeff Wakelin and Dave Raymond as “Starters”; Bob Hawker and Barry Fitzgerald for Registration, and Barry (aka David Bailey) again for the great photographs of the players. We mustn’t forget John and Jo in the office for what they did behind the scenes and, of course, our ground staff. Thank you.
Lastly, we would like to thank the ladies and their guests for supporting this friendly event.
A successful day.
Congratulations to all our winners, great scores!
