The Annual Meeting of 2017 was held on 19th January 2018. The meeting began by remembering the significant contribution that Rachel Evens had made during her 20+ years as a member. Everyone felt very sad that she had recently died, after a brave fight against cancer, and we will miss her.
Draft minutes of the Annual Meeting meeting are to be found on that particular page. After the meeting members enjoyed a 3 course meal which was followed by the presentation of all the trophies and prizes for the 2017 season. Photos of the event which were taken by Maria Craven are below.
On Saturday 9th December the Christmas Hamper was won by Christine Barnes with 14 points and Ann Martin was runner up with 13 points.
On Wednesday 13th December the weather was so poor that Shelagh organised an indoor competition for us all to participate in. It was a great success and was won by Izzy Dear with 13 points. (Subtly desguised as 'Elf'. As we were unable to play Golf for the Hamper, it was decided that we would all draw names out of a hat, the winner of this was Sue Kent.

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!
