Competitions Update 2017
Ladies Ping Betterball Stableford Tuesday 20 June 2017
An excellent result for Gill Youngs and Helen Smith who amassed 43 points to win in warm, overcast conditions. Well done also to runners up Pat Gubb and Chris Sharp who delivered 42 points having beaten Ali Groom and Rachel Miller on the back nine by one. All fingers crossed for qualification to the national finals ladies. Good Luck!
Hunt Wells Trophy Tuesday 13 June 2017
It was beautifully warm but as the cool breeze dropped during the morning, humidity levels rose steadily and many were glad to make it back to the clubhouse for refreshment! On the course, the rough was frankly, rough, yet no less than four pairs successfully dovetailed their games to shoot nett 66. Congratulations therefore, go to Anne Kilby and Jenny Chambers who shot 32 on the back 9, whilst Suzanne Pretty and Julie Bowler, Joanne Barradell and Alison Davie and Gilly Higgins and Rachel Miller all shot 33. Gilly and Rachel were runners up on the back 6. A fantastic, closely fought competition ladies. Long may it continue!
Professional's Day for Ladies Tuesday 30 May 2017
It was a warm, overcast day but with rain the day before, the key was to keep to the fairways, putt firmly on the slow greens and avoid the rough that is really coming into its own. Congratulations therefore, go to Tina Rumming who evidently mastered all elements to take the overall prize with a superb 39 points. Well done also to Anne Kilby who won the Silver Division with 35 points; Doreen Horspool who took Bronze 1 with 36 points and finally to our very own Lady Captain, Carol Devonport, who secured 30 points to take the Bronze 2 prize. The best gross went to Carol Wild and nearest the pin prizes go to Jackie Haines, Tina Rumming and Julie Bowler for the 1st, 5th and 15th respectively. All prizes will be presented on the evening of the 22nd July.
Much deserved thanks go to David and his team for organising the day including the well received refreshments at the halfway house. The fact that the wine apparently ran out speaks for itself!
Chapman Cup EG Medal Tuesday 23 May 2017
What a difference a week makes! The weather was warm though cloudy first thing which meant early morning dew kept the greens a little slow. Regardless, the conditions clearly suited Julie Wells who shot a nett 71 to win this week's EG medal. Continuing her excellent form, Julie has now dropped 4 shots in as many weeks! Julie and Margot Lawrence qualify for the Gold Medal. Finally, Julie now goes on to play Gilly Higgins whilst Margaret Norris will play Margot Lawrence in the next round of the Chapman Cup. Well done all.
Red/White/Blue Prosecco Fling Tuesday 16 May 2017
The weather was wet, windy and greens were slower, however this didn't hinder Margaret Norris, Carole Bell and Joan Ward who shot a phenomenal combined score of 83 points. Runners up Kate Hammond, Chris Sharp and Carol Devonport must have thought they were in with a chance when they posted 77 points! A bottle of Prosecco each goes to Anne Kilby for nearest the marker on the 1st and for Carole Bell on the 18th.
Anderson Cup and Grannies Bowl Tuesday 9 May 2017
The weather was overcast, the sun didn't put in an appearance until late afternoon and the chilly wind kept the day cool. A strong field of 51, including three new members, competed as Julie Wells returned an excellent 40 points to win the Anderson Cup with Joy Robinson in second place with 36. Joy also won the Grannies Bowl.
Briggs Broadbent Trophy and Young Cup Tuesday 25 April 2017

Barlow Elsom Greensomes Medal Tuesday 4 April 2017
The first competition of the season saw the course in great condition and the weather fine for early spring, which spurred Doreen Horspool and Margaret Chilvers to return a good score of 68.8 to win from Rachel Miller and Alison Groom in second place with a score of 71.0.
Ladies Captain v Ladies Vice Captain Match Tuesday 14 March 2017
The annual Ladies Captain versus Ladies Vice Captain match ended with the Ladies Captain's team winning 3 and a half to 2 and a half.
