Retiring Ladies Captain’s Report

AGM – Monday, 21st October, 2013

Retiring Ladies Captain’s Report

October already, and the AGM season has come round again, and the necessity to sum up the year in as brief a way as possible.  As George Burns said – the recipe for a good speech is to have a good beginning and a good ending, and keep the two as close together as possible.

Once the floods subsided I have had a very trouble-free year, and have enjoyed my second stint of captaincy.  It has not been marked by significant highs or lows, just enjoyable golf with an excellent group of Ladies, as well as in the wider context of the club.

The Long Sutton Solheim fixtures in winter had to be reduced to three events, instead of the normal four, but once the main playing season arrived all our major fixtures proceeded without a hitch – the Ladies Open, Ladies Invitation, Mixed Open, Pink Lady Day, Joint Charity Competition and Redwood matches against the Seniors.  Thanks to the army of volunteers from the Ladies who coped with duties at such events, and, of course, not forgetting St. Margaret’s Hospice Day, allowing the events to run so smoothly.

My two charities – the Dorset and Somerset Air Ambulance and Ward 9 at Musgrove Park – have each benefited by over £1,000, thanks mainly to the generosity of the Ladies Section, who turned up for events such as the initial coffee morning and used golf clothes and equipment sale and the fashion show (with our five glamorous models from the Section).  We also raised over £140 at Pink Lady Day, with its frequent, and usually unfair, system of fines.

Golf this year has been, as always, enjoyable on our delightful course, with plenty of good handicap reductions, and some excellent performances, notably Mary Marshall, who reduced her handicap by 10 shots during the year, and Mandy Head who also reduced her handicap dramatically, but still managed to amass a good haul of trophies.  I wish them and the rest of the struggling majority good golf and reducing handicaps.  In the Inter Club League we managed to maintain our position in Division 1, and experienced several most enjoyable Friendly and Mixed Friendly competitions, both at home and on other courses in the area.  Our aim at these is friendly enjoyment, in which we certainly succeeded, even though our winning record is not particularly startling!

Thanks to so many people for allowing our section to continue to thrive in friendly enjoyment of the surroundings and the course:  Graham and Felicity, of course, who bear the brunt of all the problems with cheerful helpfulness; the pro-shop, and especially Andrew, to whom we are grateful for his help preparing our Rogers Cup squad; the green staff, for their unfailing hard work, in the most difficult conditions; the kitchen and bar staff, keeping us so admirably fed and watered, and of course the usually invisible hands working behind the scenes in the office.  My committee have been unfailingly supportive, and Carol, my Vice Captain, in particular, to whom I hand over the reins of the Ladies’ Section with absolute confidence.  Several of the committee are standing down after several years’ service, and two of our section have been serving on the County committee for the last four years – Sheena Smith as Honorary Secretary, Ros Williams as Competitions Secretary.  Thank you to all of them for their hard work, and we wish Sandra Ford an enjoyable and interesting time as she takes up the reins of Asst County Competitions Secretary.

Pink Lady Day – 10th July, 2013

Pink Lady Day – 10th July, 2013

Pink Lady Day dawned with glorious sunshine, and the pink costumes were as glorious as the weather.  Thirty-six ladies took over the course, taking turns with a pink ball to double the stableford points in the bowmaker.  On the tee ladies were warned that a fines system was in operation, and most people suffered as a result!  Fines were imposed for sins as wide-ranging as:

 

          Suggesting fines in the first place

          Wearing 20 year-old shorts (and Sandra could still get into them!)

          Wearing a bunny tail or ribbon bows attached to the back of shorts

          Using an umbrella to keep the sun off

          Arguing with the Lady Captain about whether the above fine was fair

          Wearing jazzy sunglasses

          Moaning about photographs on the 1st tee

          Chipping in for a birdie on the 7th

          Sneaking about the birdie on the 7th 

 

And so it went on, and on………..         

It appeared that the Lady Captain’s rule of thumb was “If it moves, fine it!”.  However, since the first fine was imposed by the Lady Captain on herself, as she had misled players into thinking that fines would only be 20p., and then changed her mind and imposed 50p, she suffered with the rest.

There was some good golf, and some not-so-good golf; most people brought their pink balls back, but not all; there was plenty of laughter all round the course, some of it captured on camera; and everyone enjoyed themselves.

The day finished with tea and cakes (pink, of course), beautifully decorated by Roger, and plenty of money was raised for the Breast Cancer Research charity.

Silver Friendly v Wheathill 16.6.13

Silver Friendly v Wheathill 16.6.13

Twelve doughty ladies met in the rain at Long Sutton this Sunday, despite the weather forecast and the fact that they all had demands on their time at home, it being Father's Day.  Their aim was to play the second leg of their Friendly Silver Match, Long Sutton v Wheathill, 4BBB Matchplay with no shots...tasty!

 The pairings were:

                              Carolyn Hird (12), Stacie Watts (14)                     

                              Helen Marsh (8), Annya Patten, (9)            

 

                              Eliza Vail (17), Margaret Bennett (17)                    

                              Michelle Edwards (13) Judith Rowsell (16)

 

                              Gill Edwards (18), Joce Dunevein (20)                   

                              Jill Byrne (17), Janette Stewart (18)

 

Thankfully the rain clouds lifted and waterproofs could come off.  As ever, home advantage shone through, Long Sutton winning 4 and 3, 3 and 2  and 4 and 3, the latter despite a putt for a win left short on the 5th, in front of an audience.  Mortifying!  The course looked beautiful and played well.  The 10th green, now in play, was described as 'amazing'.  Long Sutton's win left the two clubs honours even.  All the ladies enjoyed the challenge and the tea and look forward to repeating the exercise next year.

Thank you one and all.
