Past Lady Captain's Day
On Thursday 29th August, Past Lady Captain Elaine Bell, played host to sixteen past captains and this year's Lady Vice-Captain Julie Jordan as Lady Captain Pat Carville was away enjoying the Spanish sunshine. There was little sunshine in the afternoon when fourteen of the ladies played to win the lovely prizes provided by Elaine and also to get their hands on the silver trophy which was first presented in 1995 by past Captain and President, Dorothy Woods. Conditions for golf were tricky with a swirling wind and showers making the ladies feel that summer golf was coming to an end. The two ladies lucky enough to come away with the spoils were Grizel Turkington with 34 points, who claimed the runner up spot and Anne Knox who took the winner's prize with 35 points. After a lovely dinner, the ladies enjoyed some good chat and it was lovely to see Dorothy Woods and Georgie Hogan joining those who had played earlier for dinner. Many thanks from all the past captains to Elaine for hosting an enjoyable afternoon's golf, a great meal and for providing beautiful candles as prizes.
