Mixed Friendly v Isle -Wedmore 18th August 2019

Six Long Sutton couples had a beautiful sunny day on Sunday for the mixed friendly match, away at the Isle of Wedmore GC.   Their course was in immaculate condition and the views of the surrounding countryside were spectacular.  The matches were, as always played in an extremely friendly and happy spirit.  It was great that Cheryl and Nick Stacey and Sally and Alex Morrice were able to play, joining up with the more regular team members.

Very well done to the Long Sutton team for another win, this time 3.5 to 2.5.

The team: Cheryl and Nick Stacey, Sylvie Coache-Tucker and Rod Tucker, Mary and Tim Marshall, Marion and Ray Boulton, Sally and Alex Morrice, Robin and Rachel Ewbank.

Our final game of the season is to be played at home to Weymouth, on Sunday 15th September.  Please sign up for this match or, alternatively contact Robin or Rachel directly to let them know that you would be interested in playing.  If you don’t have a playing partner, please still add your name and I will endeavour to find you a suitable partner.

Let’s end the season on a high with another win!  There is also a lovely carvery on completion so don’t miss out!!

Ladies Open 14th August

The Ladies Open took place on Wednesday 14th August, and of course, it was a Wednesday, the ladies morning so it was of course bound to rain!  Carole Paterson and I had, over the course of the last week, been paying particular attention to the weather forecast and, the week leading up to the Ladies Open, was grim.  Thunder, lightning, heavy rain, it couldn’t be as bad as that day back in April for the Joint Charity Day, could it?  Carole added an extra section to the starters brief to include detailed plans for inclement weather conditions!
The day arrived and the weather wasn’t all that bad; light drizzle.  Robin Ewbank greeted my arrival in the car park, in a “hi viz” jacket at 0745 in the morning, but it wasn’t as bad as we had dreaded.

87 ladies (only one cancelled due to the weather) arrived to play in the Open from 19 different clubs including 70 visitors in total.  The registration area was a hive of activity, ushering ladies in to sign in, given homemade biscuits (made by the ladies), two’s entered and instead of the usual raffle, a ball raffle instead. 

I think, in the end, most ladies were so relieved that it wasn't pouring down with rain at any time that they returned from their games with smiles on their faces, saying they had mostly "stayed dry".  The conditions were tough, with the wind picking up to blow the rain away, which meant that there were only 7 teams out of 29 to have more than 70 points with an away team in the end, from Enmore Park, being the eventual winners with 79 points.  Nearest the Pins went to away players on the 7th, 12th and 17th and Ros Williams was the only player to score a 2.  Unsurprisingly, she was extremely happy with her 4 boxes of balls!  

My thanks go to the Senior’s Captain Bill Bond and members of the Senior section who helped both in the car park and on the 1st tee.  Also to the ladies who made delicious biscuits, the registration team, the team that set up the day before, Caroline Lumley-Frank, for the flowers and Sandra Ford, for coordinating the final scores.  To Paul, Andrew, Johnny, Andy and the staff for all their help on the day.  However, my biggest “thank you” goes to Carole Paterson who, after coordinating the Ladies Open at Long Sutton for the last 5 years has decided this is her last year at organising this event.  Thank you, Carole, very much indeed.

Another Ladies Hole in One.

Jo Cook achieved a hole in one on Sunday 11th August at the 12th hole. A lovely shot, two bounces and into the hole. Well worth teeing off at 7.30 am before the Men's Open.

Well done Jo.

Barlow Cup Winner -Katharine Stringer

36 ladies from across Somerset competed in the Somerset Ladies County Golf Association (SLCGA) Bronze meeting, at Wheathill Golf Club, on Thursday 8th August.  Three of our ladies were playing; Katharine Stringer, Mary Marshall and Chris Coates.  Katharine going forward to represent Long Sutton as our Barlow Cup entrant after winning the qualifying competition at Long Sutton on 22nd May.  Katharine, on her own admission, played a bit erratically but still gained 38 points including a 2 spot on the 8th.  This meant that she came 5th overall; a great result, but the even better news was that she was the best home qualifier in the field, which meant that she was the SLCGA Barlow Cup winner for 2019.  Well done Katharine!
