County Captain's Day 2021

Hello Ladies! Well, what a day, County Captain’s Day was very definitely not what we are all used to - these are strange times. Many of you will be aware of the difficulties that had occurred at The Nottinghamshire in the late afternoon prior to Captain’s Day, and firstly I must sincerely thank the club for pulling out all the stops to ensure that the day still went ahead. The team there worked extremely hard to provide a meal and pulled in staff from anywhere that they could. The lovely lady in the cream blouse who worked all day is the owner’s daughter who is a head teacher in Leicestershire!

July 15th was a lovely, warm, and sunny day. The conditions for golf were fabulous and the scores reflected this. I received many complimentary comments about the excellent condition of the course. And now to the results….
The winning team are Jan Hooley, Pam Musson, Elaine Shelton and Sue Evans of Stanton on The Wolds with a fantastic score of 91. In second place, another great score of 86 are Wendy Kerry, Lorraine Howd, Sheila Drummond and Gini Whitehead of Ruddington Grange. In third place are Wendy Adcock and Jane Quibell from Norwood Park, Sandy Flewitt (Horsley Lodge) and Nancy Tatham (Lincoln) with a score of 85. Wendy’s team took third place on countback with a back nine score of 45.

Nearest the pin in 2 for Silver players on the 15th was Jan Slater of Notts Ladies. Unfortunately, there was confusion surrounding the Bronze nearest the Pin on the 14th and so a spot prize has been drawn for a Bronze player and this goes to Lesley Crispin of College Pines.  My congratulations go to all the winners. The full results can be downloaded here.

Thank you for all your good wishes, it was a very enjoyable day.
