Lady Captain 2016-2017
I, like many of our members have moved to Long Sutton Golf Club from another golf club, either by personal choice or through a club closure. I am sure those of you who have done the same, found the welcome at Long Sutton Golf Club extremely positive. The Ladies section prides itself in extending a warm welcome to all golfers regardless of their golfing experience or abilities.
I am honoured to have been asked to be the Ladies Captain for the 2016-2017 season. l bring a wealth of golfing experience to my Captaincy being part of the Somerset County Ladies Golf Association. I am the voting member and County Representative to England Golf on behalf of Somerset Ladies and have worked with and for the County Junior Girls for 5 years whilst also holding the role County Welfare Officer. Since my retirement from Social Work after 30 plus years l have much more time to focus on my beloved game.
For the forthcoming year I have produced a programme which, l hope it suits new and experienced golfers alike. We have 87 lady members in our section and an average of 45 play each Wednesday, our ladies morning. Events have also been arranged on a Sunday morning alongside other club events which, I hope, will ensure that working ladies get plenty of competitive golf. There are also many team matches played at both league and friendly level against clubs from near and afar.
Long Sutton Golf Club prides itself on raising a great deal of monies for Charity, especially for St Margaret’s Hospice, a charity it has supported for 23 years. This year, we will support St Margaret’s and another local charity, Somerset Young Carers. Young carers are in a position of caring for a parent, sibling or another often forfeiting their own childhood needs. Our fund raising will provide monies to allow help them take a break from their caring role.
Our Ladies Committee work hard to ensure new and experienced golfers are supported in their membership at Long Sutton Golf Club and enjoy a very full and active club programme. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions or new ideas.
We are looking forward to a great golfing year ahead. Have fun…
