Trudie Tensjo hosted a very successful Captains Day on Tuesday 2nd June, which was an opportunity for her to thank all the Ladies for their support this year. The start of play was delayed for an hour due to heavy rain and wind however this was no great hardship as it allowed players more time to indulge in the lovely bacon bites & croissants provided by their Captain before braving the elements on the course.

Players were organised into twenty-three teams of three and the format, which was originally 666, was curtailed to 444 on the Church Course and 555 on the Holywell Course. The teams at the front of the field had to cope with heavy drizzle as well as winds gusting over forty mph and those teams teeing off later definitely experienced better weather but playing conditions can still only be described as extremely difficult.

On returning to the Clubhouse, the ladies were rewarded with a glass of Bucks Fizz before gathering in the restaurant for a “Mad Hatters Tea Party” which included pots of refreshing “Mad Hatters Brew!” and delicious “Alice in Wonderland” sourpuss teacakes baked by Trudie’s sister Kathy Hore.

Trudie thanked everyone for joining in the day with such enthusiasm before presenting the winning teams with prizes of the most beautiful local pottery, created by Debbie Mitchell.
