Woodhall Spa Golf Club Lady Captain’s Day took place on Thursday.
The weather, having caused problems in recent years, behaved well and contributed towards making it a memorable and enjoyable event for everyone involved.
Lady captain, Maureen Gay put together a friendly Stableford competition on the Bracken course, with three holes re-organised to give it a somewhat different composition.
The overall winner was Sandra Dearie, with an impressive 38 points. The Sopranos handicap section was won by Chris Means, whilst Cynthia Treharne triumphed in the Altos.
All the ladies who competed – an impressive 65 in all, including three guests – were treated by Maureen to Pimms and cakes at the halfway house, which were very much appreciated and enjoyed.
Prize giving took place in the early evening, following a tasty afternoon tea. Maureen, surrounded by an impressive display of congratulation cards and flowers from her fellow members, presented a variety of orchids to the prize winners.
Lady vice-captain Jo Burden thanked Maureen on behalf of all the members present for organising such an enjoyable event and wished her the very best for her remaining time as lady captain.
