A different opportunity for the ladies of Newark Golf Club today. Maureen Clarke - England golf Referee and County Handicap Advisor joined us to impart some of her vast array of knowledge on our much loved game. Another successful Nine and Dine competition preceeded the Rules afternoon. Even though this week is course maintenance week, I was very impressed with the way that Graeme and his team presented the course for us, impressive for this time of year, many thanks!
The stableford competition was won by Megan Allen with 22 points, second Tish applewhite with 20 points, third was Barbara Channon with 19 points and fourth was Carole Wass with 18 points. Well done ladies, good scoring!
A superb lunch of chicken & pesto pasta with roasted vegetables and garlic bread went down very well on a cold but mostly dry morning. Karen, Matt, Rob and the team again did us proud with another diffeferent menu. We organised a hot drinks station, with ladies collecting their own drinks before settling down to listen and watch Maureen's interesting display. She started "on the tee" and the teeing ground and went all the way round the course with lots of different situations that we could all find ourselves in! All in all a very enlightening afternoon with lots of well fielded questions from our knowledgeable ladies.
It was lovely to welcome some of our newer ladies to this event, and I am sure they will put the information to good use later this year when they all move on to gain their handicaps. Particlarly nice to see our more senior ladies who love to come and join in and support these events, so thank you all for attending, it is greatly appreciated.
