Lady Captain’s Newsletter 13th October

Again we have had another busy few weeks to look back on!
The sun shone on us all (perhaps a little too brightly) on the Beverley Past Ladies’ Captains’ Day on the 7th September, but it was a real pleasure to welcome some of our former Lady Captains to the Club for lunch.

Congratulations to Jane Myers for coming 1st and winning the Past Captains’ Rose Bowl and to Sue Burdass, Runner-Up.

The following Wednesday evening also turned out to be warm and sunny for our Academy Texas Scramble and Social. A mix of 20 ladies and Academy players went onto the course to play a short game from the Academy tees. Very well done to Lynn Bray, Jacky Murray, Sue Perkins and Jill Adkins for coming in 1st with 17 points over 5 holes and to Gabby Calvert, Natalie Calver, Gail McCusker and Libby Cutting for coming a close 2nd (on countback) also with 17 points.
We made £78 for my charity ‘Bundles of Joy’. Thank you to everyone for your kindness and generosity.

27th September – Beverley v Hainsworth AWAY in the Hull and District League
Unfortunately, torrential rain stopped play and the match was abandoned after a few holes! Well done to the ladies for playing as long as they did in the rain!

4th October
Jane Myers and Lynn Bray represented Beverley in the Matchplay Foursomes for the EYLWGA. Although they didn’t progress to the later stages of the competition an enjoyable day was had in challenging, windy conditions.

7th October
A Friendly Match took place against Driffield AWAY and three pairs played in the first match of the East Yorkshire Ladies’ Winter Golf Association competitions at Hessle.

The next EYLWGA Foursomes Match will take place on the 4th November in York.
Our congratulations to Jane Myers who has taken up the role of Vice President of the East Yorkshire Ladies’ Winter Golf Association 2021-2022.

EGGs Friendly Competition 1st October
Unfortunately, due to the course being closed initially, some of the players made alternate arrangements only to find the course re-opening by 9.00am. This resulted in a reduced number playing, however, it was an enjoyable morning of golf in blustery wind and sunshine! The winning team of four included Tony (EGGs Vice Captain), Rob, Juliet Pile and myself. Thank you to the EGGs for organising.

Wednesday 6th October – Ladies’ Autumn Fashion Show by ‘Collections’

The ladies’ section held a very successful Fashion Show on Wednesday evening with fashions modelled from Collections, a ladies’ boutique in Beverley. The raffle made £172 and we raised over £600 for the Lady Captain’s Charity ‘Bundles of Joy’. Thank you to all those who supported the evening.

Happy Golfing!
