Mixed Friendly v Weymouth GC 16th June
Five couples met for a 1030 start at Weymouth, after a beautiful mid-summer drive. Four were given “lessons in golf” on their immaculate parkland course with tree-lined fairways. They, the opposition, really should have been playing at Pebble Beach. Congratulations to Valerie and John Thomas, who triumphed on the 18th!!
Well done, Weymouth, but be sure we’ll get our revenge when you come to us in September. The golf, the company, the weather, the delicious meal, all made a wonderful, enjoyable day. A huge thank you to the super team which consisted of Valerie and John, Rod and Sylvie, Ray and Marion, Katharine and Mike and Rachel and Robin,

Ladies League match v Mendip Spring GC
Lady Captains Newsletter June edition
Somerset Senior Ladies Triumph at Trevose GC against Cornwall.
Long Sutton ladies both support and play well for their County Senior Team. Somerset Senior Captain for 2019 Carole Paterson, Long Sutton, took her team for the first match of the year a South West Shield match at Trevose GC Cornwall. Our opposition, Cornwall are always tough to beat but we did it 4-3. Storms battered England but Trevose GC escape any rain as the teams played in bright sunshine and a moderate wind. Somerset had 5 links course players from Burnham & Berrow & Minehead in the team which helped. Sandra Ford Long Sutton, always a tough match player, had a solid win with her partner Judy Schroeder from Burnham. They did not know as they walked up the 18th fairway that their match would swing the result and their win did.
We won't mention the awful journey home in 3 hours of torrential rain.
Mixed Open event 9th June 2019
76 players entered the LS Mixed Open on Sunday 10th June 2019 from as far afield as Lancashire and Lichfield with the format being a 4BBB Stableford off 90% handicap. The weather stayed fine although at one stage it looked very bleak for those playing later on in the day. The course was in excellent condition, but despite that, the scores were not as high as one would have predicted with the eventual overall winners, Sharron and Iain McVie from Sherborne GC, scoring 41 points. On completion, Andy and his team produced an excellent meal in the form of a carvery. Nearest the pins were won by Steve Potts and Annie Patten (visitors) and home players Frank Penny and Denise Tomblin. Out of a large field there were only 2 two’s, with Tim Marshall and Frank Penny going away with a large quantity of golf balls between them.
Sarah thanked Paul Wills (starter), Caroline Lumley-Frank and John Paterson (biscuits), Eileen Arundell, Chris Coates, Hilary Dennes and Jennie Ridewood (set up and registration) and Andrew Hayes (prizes). However, Sarah saved the most praise for Carole Paterson for all hard work, especially her drive and determination to ensure that a full field was achieved on the day. Proactively contacting individuals to sign up for this extremely enjoyable event, starting this planning and organisation way back in January. Also, for organising the team of helpers and generally running things on the day.
