The St Enodoc Ladies AGM was held on Tuesday 1st November and was attended by over 70 ladies, all enjoying the opportunity of getting together and reviewing the year’s activities. Ladies Captain Annie Cruse welcomed everyone and reviewed some of the highlights of the past year which included;

 

  • Finishing in 3rd place in League Division One

  • Reaching the 3rd round of the Mail on Sunday competition

  • Sue Willmott and Kath Biddle reaching the 4th round of the Daily Mail Foursomes competition

  • A very enjoyable mixed away trip to Dorset

  • A fun filled Ladies’ away day at Bowood

  • Raising a total of £5387.43 for Memory Matters South West

 

Annie thanked all the players who supported her teams throughout the year and who had battled hard against some very competitive teams in the league; finishing in third place was an excellent result. 

The large sum raised for her charity was a particular highlight and Annie expressed her appreciation for the generosity of everyone who supported her fund raising throughout the year, not to mention all those who provided entertaining lapses of memory along the way (you know who you are – Lorna Harper!) as perfect examples of the relevance of this local charity. 

Annie thanked the club staff for all their support and hard work throughout her year as well as Club Captain David Elliott for his positive and enthusiastic approach. Thanks were also expressed to her committee and to Vice Captain Tamsin Blake for fulfilling their roles with gusto! 

New Ladies Captain Tamsin Blake presented Annie with a gift in thanks for her hard work. 

Tamsin congratulated Annie on an excellent year and said what a pleasure it had been working with her, although she will be a hard act to follow! 

Tamsin said that she feels ready to take on the role of Captain following the experience of the last 12 months. She recognises that St Enodoc is a prestigious club and being Ladies Captain is a great honour; she will do her utmost to maintain the standards laid down by those before her. Golf is about having fun with friends as well as being competitive, and Tamsin hopes that she can enjoy the golfing year at the same time as fulfilling her duties. 

Tamsin was happy to announce that Diana Mindel has agreed to be her Vice-Captain and she is looking forward to working with her and with new committee members Marion Andrews and Sue Roworth. The role of Ladies Captain would be impossible to do without a supportive and active committee and Tamsin thanked the remaining committee members in advance for their continuing hard work. 

Tamsin has enjoyed gaining a better understanding of the club, its competitions and cups during her year as Vice-Captain although she expressed concern that some competitions are in danger of dying out due to lack of participation; she would welcome member’s ideas as to how this may be remedied. She has particularly enjoyed getting to know many of the ladies better this year as well as meeting ladies from other clubs around the County and is looking forward to this continuing in her year of Captaincy. 

Tamsin’s chosen charity is a small Cornish charity called Active8. Founded in 1990 the charity aims to empower and motivate young people with physical disabilities to lead independent lives. Active8 have a number of projects aimed at different age groups; from supporting the young people in doing their Duke of Edinburgh Award or other outward bound projects to providing them with opportunities to practice travelling, managing money and cooking for themselves. She is happy to have found a local charity that is working for the benefit of young people. As a former teacher and careers advisor Active8 was a good fit, particularly as 3 of the young people currently benefitting from the charities work are former pupils of hers. She asked members take a look at the information displayed in the Ladies corridor if they would like to know more. 

Tamsin finished by saying that she is looking forward to her year as Ladies Captain and hopes that all the Lady members will join her in having an enjoyable and successful golfing year. 

The evening concluded with drinks and an excellent buffet prepared by Wappo – thank you!
