Just over 100 players took part in the Lady Captain’s Day at East Devon last Tuesday, writes Di Willoughby.
The morning got off to a bad start with rain, but worse was to come – fog. The first players started at 8.30 and as we could only just see the first green it was decided to limit the competition to those lower holes which should not have been as badly fog-affected as the higher ones. The fog lifted a bit allowing us to play three more holes, but although the weather improved by mid-morning the competition had to remain over only 10 holes; disappointing but the competitors enthusiasm made up for it.
The Captain entertained twenty ladies to tea in the afternoon. There was a selection of people who no longer play golf, but who have been involved at the club for many years, and it was good to see them.
Prize giving took place later in the afternoon. The winning team prize went to Helen Chivers, Rosemary Pratt and Jenny Dobel with a score of 46. Second was the team of Rene Angus, Dot Gill and Julie Jago with 43 points. Third on a count back were Doreen Cummins, Linda Knapton and Hazel Munyard, also with 43 points. Fourth were Jan Brunwin, Shirley Pressey and Carol Miller with 42 points, Fifth Kathy Copp, Jan Hill and Pat Jarvis with 41 and sixth, Maureen Howard, Sally Stratton and Sally Shackleton with 40 points.
Nearest the line on the first was Alison Kent, nearest the pin on the fourth was Margaret Powell, nearest the pin on the 10th, Celia Dixon; nearest the pin in two on the 18th (silver division) Sue Fowler and nearest the pin in three (bronze) was Jackie Lewis.
The captain thanked everyone for their support and help in making it a very successful and memorable day.
