It's that time of year again in the golfing calendar when the Lady Captain has her competition day and as always it's never a dull day!
With the 'term of office' held by Sue Roworth at present and taking into account her career as a PE teacher it seemed rude not to go with the sporting theme in her honour. So, the ladies represented a number of sports inlcuding basketball, boxing, netball and swimming along with a touch of the olympic flavour peppering the proceedings.
The format for the day was undoubtedly going to be a surprise as Sue is very inventive where that is concern and today was no different. The ladies played in teams of three with in a Texas Scramble Drive and only when they reach the green would they know how many scores would count for each respective hole. The day was blighted slightly by a short shower of rain, but on the whole most of the teams got away with it.
After the golf, the ladies enjoyed afternoon tea and nibbles before the formailty of the prize presentation. The Lady Captain Sue Roworth had this to say:
'What a brilliant turnout and how wonderful for me to see 80 ladies here today – my sincere thanks to you all for signing up, playing and supporting my special day – how lucky I am.
I’m so pleased you all enjoyed the format and the suspense of getting to the green, to see, how many scores to count!
