Member Shelagh decided to introduce a new strategy to maintain social distancing for her golf ball!
Dressed in Christmas costumes 18 members played in this 9 hole competition, the day started wet but soon the sun shone and despite the very wet conditions underfoot,which made play difficult, everyone completed their game. Usually the event is rounded off with the prize presentation of hampers to the winner and runner-up, a Secret Santa gift for everyone and refreshments. This year, due to the Covid 19 restrictions, there was no gathering after play... everyone went home and scorecards were sent in! However Captain Sue delivered the hampers to the homes of our winners. Congratulations to our winner Grace Eastment with 14 points and Pat Birks runner- up with 13 points ocb from other players.
See below for photos of our winners and players.

Below are photos of the above event. It took place instead of the usual Halloween Open which unfortunately had to be cancelled this year. Whilst the usual 100+ visitors were misssed everyone enjoyed dressing up and having a small celebration afterwards.... whilst following social distancing of course!
Sally Smith, Maria Craven, Rosemary Hay, Ann Martin, Christine Barnes and Julie Harvey were the winners over the 2 days and were very happy to receive prizes of Halloween chocolates donated by Captain Sue.

On Saturday 26th September, on a bitterly cold morning 11 ladies teed off on the first day of the club championships. Despite the weather everyone made it through. The second day, Wednesday 30th began in fine weather and everyone completed their round before the rain began to fall again!
Our Club Champion for 2020 and winner of the Clover Cup for the best gross score is Grace Eastment with 2 excellent rounds of 85 and 81. Many congratulations to her. The winner of The Rowlinson Lady, for the best nett score is Bridget Hendry, well done Bridget and the winner of The Carrington Bowl for the best score on the 2nd day is Ann Martin, well done Ann. Each winner was presented with a small gift to celebrate the event. The presentation of trophies will happen at our annual presentation evening, hopefully in February 2021.
Below are a selection of photos of the winners and all players (socially distanced of course) during the 2 days. Players clothing will indicate which day is which!!
Congratulations to Lynne King who had a hole in 1 on the 8th hole during the September Stableford on Saturday 5th September. Well played Lynne.
This is Lynne's first hole - in - one at our club but she did have one a few years ago at Bourn G. C. in a ladies invitation day.
News from Lady Captain Sue, August 2020
This has been a very strange and unsettling year. We had to cancel all club competitions and friendly matches and of course our Awayday and Lady Captains Day.
These have all been rearranged for 2021.
However from 1st August we are recommending monthly medals and some more prestigious competitions. We will also run eclectic comps for both August and September. We hope to hold a Ladies Club Competition in September incorporating the Carrington Bowl.
Our annual Halloween Open has also been cancelled but within the club we aim to play a Texas Scramble in October which all members can enjoy and maybe dress up for.
Both McMillan and Poppy Charity days will take place as normal.
So although 2020 has not been the year we all hoped for, let’s still enjoy some competitive golf and maybe some social events once the hotel is up and running again.

On Wednesday 3rd March 2020 the ladies section gathered together for our 1st session of the season. The weather was beautiful as 12 of us set off for our Snowdrop Golf event.
The winner with 15 points was Maria Craven.
All the ladies were each given a small pot of spring flowers from our new Captain Sue Wiliams. Please see the photographs below.
On the 7th February the Ladies section met for our Annual Meeting, the presentation of prizes and the inauguration of our new Captain Sue Williams.
After the Annual Meeting members enjoyed a very good meal before Bridget presented the 2019 Prizes and Trophies.
To complete the prize presentation Club President Rosemary was delighted to award the Presidents Putter for 2020 to Christine Barnes for her long term commitment to and work for our golf club.
Lady Captain Bridget then putted out and Sue Williams putted in to begin her role as Lady Captain 2020.
See below a selection of photographs taken on the evening.
