Holtye Golf Club
The Ladies Autumn Meeting was held on Thursday September 13th. Many of our members, behind the scenes, carry out a variety of tasks that make the day very special. Thanks go to Diana Painter and Sue McGregor, Barbara Springett and Jackie Samways for flowers, prizes and table decorations respectively.
The day is masterminded by Sue McDonnell who juggles the players from the morning 18 hole stableford into teams for the afternoon 9-hole scramble. No mean task to achieve parity.
Barbara's prizes were stunning as seen in the pictures above and Jackie's table decorations supplied us not only with menus, but also the ingredients which would be required to make them! She also added some daffodil bulbs in pots for a future memory of the day in the Spring 2019.
It was fitting when the results were announced that Jackie won the Autumn Salver with 38 points cutting her handicap by one shot and led her team to victory in the afternoon in the scramble as well. Another special moment came when Sue McGregor, one of Jackie's team needless to say, achieved a hole-in-one on the 8th.
Everyone, without exception, enjoyed a sumptuous meal provided by Julian our new chef from Sussex Chef. which concluded one of the best days we have experienced in many a year. Pictured below is Jackie holding her coveted prize.
The full result is as follows:-
1st Jackie Samways 38 pts
2nd Di Botham 35 pts on count back
3rd Sue Homewood 35 pts
Back 9 Vanessa Greensted 15 pts
Front 9 Sue McDonnell 18 pts
1st team Jackie Samways, Vanessa Greensted, Sue McGregor and Nici Hill 33 pts (Yes that is 33!!!)
2nd team Sue McDonnell, Val Ward and Valmai Duffin 25 pts
We would like to add a "HUGE THANK YOU" to Zak Banfield, our new trainee green-keeper who, single-handedly, set the course up beautifully for us in the morning.
