CAPTAINS’ CHARITY DAY – Sadly the trend for extreme weather conditions on my ‘event days’ continued – it poured down with rain and the golf had to be cancelled. Participants in the golf were brilliant and agreed to leave their entry fees in the pot for the charities. All teams were given a raffle ticket and the prizes that would have been won by the winners of the golf were raffled off, which everyone was happy with. ‘Elvis Presley’ was brilliant. There was much singing and dancing; we held an auction for 4 or 5 special items donated by various people/companies, which raised a large amount of money. In total on the day we raised approximately £1,700 including the raffle. Thank you so much, to all those who took part and also to those who helped organize the day. Snax once again was awesome as the MC and auctioneer!
Unfortunately, the end of the evening was overshadowed due to the fall of Gordon Green, who sadly died a few days later. My heart felt sympathy goes to his wife Jean, and his children Jeremy, Stephanie and Emma.
FRIENDLY MATCHES – September is a very busy month for Friendly Matches; we played the Shifnal ‘B’ Team at home on the 12th of September, the result being a landslide victory for Lilleshall. Well done to all of those who played.
On the 15th September we played Worfield away and were beaten. Thank you girls for your efforts – Worfield is not an easy course to play.
We then played Enville at home on the 21st September and won. Many thanks and well done to those who took part. Thankfully we just got in before the heavens opened!
We competed in the Tri Match at Shifnal on the 26th September but we did lose the trophy to Shifnal. The scores were: Shifnal 4, Lilleshall 3½ and Wrekin 1½. Those taking part deserve a medal as it rained all day! The conditions were not easy to play in so a big, “Thank you girls” for your efforts and determination!
NEW LOOK LADIES V SENIORS – The list is up in the Ladies’ changing room, which confirms the new format. Please join in. It is a shotgun start at 10.30am!! There cannot be any complaints about the start time!
CLUB QUESTIONNAIRE – Ladies, please note “IT’S TIME TO HAVE YOUR SAY.” Fill in the club questionnaire and let’s try and move our club forward!
STABLEFORD SCORING – Please ALWAYS include the GROSS score on your cards and log the GROSS scores on the computer NOT the Stableford points. Please do not tear off the top section of the new scorecard.
PLAY ON COURSE – I have been asked to issue a gentle reminder of the email issued by The Club Secretary in June of this year, which states:
On Major Competition days (Gents and Ladies) 4 balls will not be allowed to play between 8am and 1pm (this naturally does not apply when there is a 4 ball Major Event scheduled). If 4 ball matches starting before 8am are caught by Major competitors they must give way.
For other Competition days, such as Monthly Medals, Stablefords etc. the recommendation to adhere to playing in the Competition format of the day, where possible, remains. Starting play from the 5th Tee is prohibited on any Competition day.
MAIDEN SPONSORS’ DAY – A sincere thank you to the ladies who helped create a runaway success of a Sponsors’ day last Friday. The Sponsors are very important to our club. We all had a wonderful day of golf, a super meal and fun thereafter.
