The St Enodoc Ladies AGM was held on Tuesday 3rd November and was attended by around 70 ladies, all enjoying the opportunity of getting together and reviewing the year’s activities. Ladies Captain Trudie Tensjo welcomed everyone and reviewed some of the highlights of the past year which included:

  • Celebrating the club’s 125th anniversary in style

  • Finishing just ½ a point short of 3rd place in the league and remaining in the first division

  • Winning the team County Bronze Shield at The Point and Lynn Ashcroft winning the individual Andrews Scratch cup

  • Hosting a very successful Ladies County Championships on the course and seeing some significant member success at the event

  • Holding some wonderful charity events; The Children’s Charity Day and Music at the 19th, and raising an amazing £8248.59 for The Chris Treglown Foundation as a result

Trudie thanked everyone who has helped her during the year and was presented with a leaving gift from new Ladies Captain, Annie Cruse.

Annie thanked Trudie for a creative and successful year and said that she had thoroughly enjoyed her year as Vice-Captain. As a former P.E. teacher Annie thought that, in comparison to school sport, organising the ladies friendly matches would be a fairly straightforward task. Having encountered a couple of unexpected challenges during the year she now recognises that school sports and Ladies golf are not so dissimilar after all!

Annie was very happy to announce that Tamsin Blake has agreed to be her Vice-Captain, and she is looking forward to working with her, together with the remaining committee members Diana Mindel and Trudy Tremain and the 5 new committee members; Annie Matthews, Penny Cartwright, Chris Henderson, Sue Richards and Sarah Sandercock. She also thanked Judy Redman for agreeing to stay on for an extra year as Ladies Secretary.

Annie announced her chosen charity to be Memory Matters South West, a charity whose aim is to meet the needs of those living with Dementia in the community. Their Activity Clubs sit within the community in Lostwithiel, Wadebridge and Bodmin and they aim to stimulate thinking, enhance language, improve social skills and build friendships. Annie confessed to having a memory lapse of her own when she met the director of the charity recently and failed to recognise her as a former pupil she had taught at Wadebridge School!

Annie is looking forward to working with her committee and other members of the club during her year as Captain. She hopes to be able to build on the success of the past year in the league competition and that club members will also continue to have individual success at club and county level. She also expressed her wish that all ladies continue to enjoy their golf and with that aim in mind she has added a couple of different formats to the golfing calendar for next year.

The club championships, which had been scheduled to be held over one weekend this year but were thwarted by other events, are again scheduled to be played over one weekend in the forthcoming year, the weekend of the 17th & 18th September being the diary date.

Annie finished by saying that it will be an honour to be St Enodoc Ladies Captain for the coming year and that she will endeavour to fulfil the requirements of the role to the best of her ability.

After the presentation of all the cups and trophies, members enjoyed canapés and wine.
