MacMillan Cancer Support

On 16th and 17th of October, when they played golf,  the ladies and senior men used the occasions to provide each other with a half way house. The donations made went to Macmillan Cancer Support. The weather was very good. A little chilly early on but the hot tea and coffee at the halfway house was very well received. We raised in excess of £177.00

You will find some photographs below which were taken on the day.

Mary Cole Rosebowl, 4th September 2017

On Monday 4th September 2017 our club took part in the Mary Cole Rose Bowl.  This is a County Event which is a highlight on our calendar.  Three Ladies were selected to represent us – Maria Craven, Sandie Carrington and Sui Wong.  The venue was the inland links course at St Ives – a daunting course although luckily the weather was kind with little rain and moderate winds.  The greens were very tricky – I noticed as caddie that all three players in Maria’s group were struggling to get to grips with the pace and vagaries, very unlike our home well-coiffured and mostly flat greens.  One of the players in this trio, Sarah Greenall, represents Cambridgeshire and has a handicap of 5.  The event is a team effort with three scores combined to produce winner. 


Unfortunately, it was not to be our day.  However, the three scores, 87 (Maria), 81 (Sandie) and 75 (Sui Wong) combined to make it a very good effort on the part of our team.


Winners on the day were Newmarket Links – Sarah Greenall(73) , Marcella Tuttle (75) and Edie (74)combined well to get a great score.  Runners up were Saffron Walden – special mention was made for their young player, Hettie, who had the best gross score overall coming in with nett 71.  Lauren from Ely did very well to get 69.


If you are coming along to the Jean Wilkinson Semis and Finals day at our club on Monday 11th September, you are likely to see the Newmarket Ladies in action again.

Well done to our Ladies for stepping up and representing us!
