The Ladies were lucky to catch a break in the mercurial August weather on Tuesday 15th for their annual invitation day. Always well attended, the Ladies invite friends from other clubs far and near, to enjoy a round on either the Church course or the Holywell. This year 80 ladies participated and there was a lovey warm atmosphere in the clubhouse. The course is in beautiful condition at present and the friendly format on the day allowed all the visitors to enjoy it to the maximum. 

After play, lunch was served in the dining room and as always was excellent, with the ‘gourmandise’ desserts going down particularly well. The prize giving followed when Ladies’ Captain Tamsin Blake welcomed everyone to the day and thanked the greenkeepers, kitchen and clubhouse staff for their hard work in supporting the day. She also thanked her committee for their hard work in preparing for and running the day, in particular Marion Andrews for the lovely prize table. 

Due to the excellent playing conditions the scores were high from the winning teams who were as follows;
