A large field of 96 ladies from 25 different clubs met at Cooden Beach Golf Club to compete in our Autumn Meeting. The forecast was for rain later in the day and so we were thankful that it was only on the last few holes that it started and was not enough to spoil the day.
We welcomed Lindsay Smith, Lady Captain of Cooden Beach, who organised a wine raffle in aid of her Charity ‘RNLI’. Members were thanked for their generosity in raising £350 for this very worthy cause.
We were very well looked after by the bar staff and Sophie and her team who served us an excellent two course carvery with a fabulous selection of desserts.Thanks to all the hard work of the Greenkeepers, the course was in excellent condition and the only outside influence came from a fox which decided to take a ball, which had just been hit off the tee on the first hole, and carry it off to play with in the bushes! Congratulations to the team of Jane Harmer, Sue Sexton and Sheila Payne from Willingdon took the first place prize with 71 points. Sheila was unable to stay for prize giving.
The SLC&SGA Committee were thanked for their help, especially our Secretary, Elaine Fell, for her superb planning and organisation. This competition is our last event for 2019 and we look forward to seeing all our members again in 2020.
The Committee would like to thank our President, Sylvia Huggair, who has provided us with some beautiful flower arrangements for our prize tables and little bags for the prize vouchers during her time on our Committee.
