MIXED FRIENDLY MATCHES – we played Worfield at home on the 4th June and we were thrashed! I think there are perhaps a few members of Worfield who need their handicaps adjusting – not that I’m bitter or anything! Will and I were beaten on the 18th so we did hold them off until then, not bad bearing in mind after the 3rd we were 3 down!
HANDICAP LEAGUE – well done to the Ladies who played in the Hawkestone Match on 3rd of June and against Bridgnorth on the 20th June. We are now through to the next round. Thank you to all who play in these matches and a big thank you to Elizabeth Kenyon for all of her hard work.
MIXED OPEN SUNDAY 5TH JUNE – what a glorious day weather wise. 74 players took part. The winners came in with 41 points, one of the players was a member at The Shropshire and one from Shrewsbury, players from Trentham came 2nd with 40 points. Two teams came in with 39 points our very own Snax and Jane Carr came 3rd on count back just pipping Will and I to the post in 4th place. If only one of us had scored on the 17th!
FINAL MEDAL – Congratulations to Jo Cole on winning the Final Medal and to Bernadette for being runner up.
CAPTAINS WEEKEND – A very enjoyable weekend. In the main the weather was kind, however it did rain on the Sunday afternoon which caught some of us playing in the mixed and the Play Offs.
Mr Captain and I played in the mixed fun competition on the Saturday evening and won! Jenny and Roger Seager were 2nd. It’s lovely to see new members coming in the prizes. The Mixed
on the Sunday was won by Bernadette and Andy Micklewright with Julie and Andy Napier being runners up – well done to both couples!
CONGRATULATIONS to Elaine Gee on being made A Honorary Life Vice President which reflects all of the hard work and time she has devoted to Lilleshall Hall Golf Club over the years.
CONGRATULATIONS also to Katrina Gillum for becoming a scratch golfer!
INTERNET – Hopefully our internet problems have been resolved as we now have a 4G system installed. This should assist our Comps and Handicap teams greatly. However remember if you have any queries please contact one of the team who will be happy to help.
ST PIERRE AWAY TRIP – Sunday – Everyone gathered at around midday for sandwiches and chips lots of fun and laughter which was great. Myself, Anne Ford and Anne Sayner were the 1st to T off at 1.30pm and guess what, there were a few spots of rain which sadly got worse. However the girls battled on. Nearest the pin was won by Jayne Sandford, 1st prize went to Joan Lawson, Maureen Shepherd, Jane Moore and Antoinette with a fantastic score of 90 points! 2nd prize was won by Jill Woodhams, Sarah Watson Jones Jean Major and Margaret Edwards with a score of 86 points. Scores on the day ranged from 82 to 76 well done to all. A fantastic day, a very weary bunch of ladies fell into bed at around 11.30pm!
MONDAY – Played the Old Course, fabulous course to play. Weather was glorious. My playing partners were Jayne Sandford, Alex Collins and Jane Carr and we had a super time. All the girls came to my room for a surprise Buck’s Fizz and cake party to celebrate the Naughty O’s birthdays I certainly made the right decision booking all of our rooms at the Lakeside Village rather than in the main hotel because it did get rather noisy to say the least! The winners of the Texas Scramble were Antoinette, Anne Sayner, Chris Downing and Ronnie Simpson with 72.2 points, in second place were Sue Parker, Jane Moore, Maureen Shepherd and Brenda Murphy with 73.8 points. Scores for the whole field ranged from 74.1 to 81.6 which is brilliant on that course.
Jan Lamb won the bucket and spade for being in the most bunkers and Alex Collins won the snorkel and goggles for losing all of her balls in the water! Nearest the pin was won by Julie Cann.
We enjoyed a magical few days away lots of fun and laughter. Thanks to all of you who joined me on this trip for making it such a memorable occasion. There’s a lot of photographic evidence which will be displayed shortly!
