Ladies Winter League 21/11/20

Plenty of overnight rain to soften up the course for this week's Winter League. As they mentioned once or twice on the Masters commentary, it'll be like throwing darts at a dartboard(!) Expecting a mud bath, we restricted ourselves to 9 holes despite the sunshine.   Three groups of golfers skidded up the hill to compete for this week's Winter League.   The golf was steady in our group. With a particularly fine chip down the 9th by Erica...   No twos to report from the day's play, but some fine scoring. Marena led the way with a terrific 18…

Ladies – And we’re back!…

...how have you been since March? Here's a gallop through what you may have missed... Soooooo...we had no golf at all 😱 for two months, then we returned with a lot of restrictions. Undaunted, we devised a Lockdown League which kept us entertained for four happy weeks. Elena Rogers was the worthy winner but please don't ask to see the trophy! Once the restrictions were lifted a wee bit more , we hastily re-shuffled our golfing calendar and resumed some of our competitions in July. Unfortunately, the Opens remained cancelled - we hope to be able to run them in 2021.…
