Lady Captain's Away Day 2017
On 31st May Broadway GC was the destination for my Away Day.
38 ladies made the journey to join me on this occasion. I am aware that a Wednesday does exclude ladies who are working mid-week and hope that next year our ladies event can include them. The day, weather wise was mostly sunny but also there was a very warm jolly atmosphere at the start of the morning as we boarded the coach, enhanced by a song from Jeannie as we left Olton and this atmosphere lasted the whole day.
We were warmly welcomed to Broadway by Lady Captain Brenda and she helped everyone find their way and waited until all ladies had played from the 1st tee. Broadway is not the easiest to play especially the front 9 but everyone survived and were delighted with the views on offer from the course and the Club House. I was delighted that Eileen Richards was our Champion on the day. I had a fantastic day, thanks to all for making it special and I am still admiring the beautiful flowers which I received.
Ladies Spring Invitation - Friday 28 April
The first big Competition for the Ladies Calendar took place on 28th of last month - The Spring Invitation. Entries were down this year as we were competing against a golfing holiday abroad and several other vacations taking place. We did, however, manage to get a good field out on the Day which started out wet but then the sun soon broke through and the majority of golf was played in the sun. The ladies in charge of the results sheet had everything ready prior to the end of lunch which meant that all the players were still present when the prize winners collected their gifts and this resulted in a great atmosphere in the Dining Room. Hilary Dixon and her guest Sue Jennings were overall winners with Lin Pillage and her guest Carol Bancroft coming in second place. Our own Ladies Captain did not miss out on the prizes coming in third place along with her guest Pauline Cooke. We had lots of willing helpers who all stayed for lunch - and drinks. Thank you to everyone who helped make the event such a success.

Chick Trot - Sunday 4th December 2016
On Sunday 4th December Wendy McIntyre organised our Christmas Chic Trot.
21 Ladies attended the lunch, with 19 playing golf beforehand.
What a great day it was, Father Christmas attire playing golf in the morning in wintry conditions and a Caribbean afternoon complete with rum shack and super food. Pirate Sarah Read was the golf winner on the day, with Claire Beardmore coming 2nd and Helen Baker 3rd.
The Lily Moore Lounge was transformed into a tropical experience with Reggae music, bright flowers, coconut trees, fairy lights, Rum punch and even Plantain crisps to nibble on! Not to mention the Carribean cusine! We even had a visit from Santa to deliver the 'secret' present!
Huge thanks to Wendy.
