It seems the sun dances that Ladies’ Captain Tamsin Blake has taken to doing before her big days are paying off, as Tuesday 30th May was another fine day for her Ladies’ Captain’s Day.

19 teams of Ladies participated in a 3 ball competition played in a 666 format, with 1 score then 2 then 3 to count on each 6 holes. Tamsin also had the bright idea of a nearest the pin in two shots on a Par 4 hole rather than the normal Par 3 arrangement. However, the St Enodoc wind had other ideas and both the 7th hole on the Holywell and the 14th on the Church were into a strong headwind and as a result not a single lady managed to hit the green in 2. Not even the refreshments served at the turn by Tamsin on the Holywell and Sarah Fisher on the Church managed to fortify the Ladies enough to get the better of the strong breeze. 

On return to the clubhouse the Ladies were served an excellent high tea created by Wappo which was followed by the prize giving. 

On the Holywell course Jayne Brenton, Pauline Wilkins & Janet Townsend came in third with 65 points and Mary Bower, Penny Thomas & Janet Walton (looks like it paid to have a Janet in your team!) were second with 68 points. The winners with an excellent 72 points were Daphne Irons, Helen Russell & Carolyn Ramsbottom. 

In third place on the Church course were Sarah Sandercock, Lynn Ashcroft & Judy Redman with 63 points (afterc/b), just ahead of them with 65 points were Kath Biddle, Larry Barnecutt & Lorna Harper and leading the field with 69 points were the winners Jin Page, Mary Rayment & Susie Hoddell. 

As there were no Nearest the Pin winners Tamsin awarded the prize on the Holywell to Jane Symons for achieving a superb 2 for 5 points on the 16th, and drew a card for the Church course which went to Kim Lord, Sue Roworth & Anne Irons.

Tamsin thanked everyone for participating in a thoroughly enjoyable day.
