Hi All, Captain Anne reporting
We turned out for our first match of the season, a 4BBB against the Senior Men at South Shields on Sunday 14th April.
Our team was :-
Helen Morgan and Sue Musgrove,
Julia Elliot and Lynda Willis,
Ruth Lindley and Sarah Hirst,
Chris van Buuren and Susan Handley,
Lyn Davison and Barbara Conley,
Marianne Moore and Jill Sheridan
Vice-Captain Jennifer Dixon and selector Cathy Bowerbank were also there to support our players and watch them play. I’d also like to thank the Vet’s rep Irene Austin who turned up to welcome us and see us off on the first tee. It was a blustery day and as we got to the first tee the rain started to spit. Not deterred, we just put more layers on and our team set off in good spirits to the task in hand.
We saw some excellent golf from both sides and whichever match we watched on the course both sides were enjoying the challenge and digging deep. In the end though, I’m sorry to report that the result was 6 – 0 to the men. Some of the matches were very close but in the end the men seemed to have the upper hand on and around the lightning fast greens with their superb short games.
Well played to everyone who took part and congratulations to the Senior men for their victory. I’d also like to thank South Shields Golf Club for their hospitality. We now start to plan our revenge for next year!!!
