Veterans' Trophy (over 50's) - Wednesday 28 June
In contrast to the balmy weather of the Beau Desert, under 50s competion, the Vets' 50 Plus competition, three days later, took place in continuous drizzle! However the field of thirty ladies completed their 18 holes and Karen Hearn and Jan Innes were undaunted by wet bunkers, less run on the ball and slower greens both finishing with nett 72. Congratulations to Karen Hearn who secured the trophy on countback. Thanks to Cynthia Parker and her team for working out the results and thanks as ever to the Greens staff for a course in tiptop condition.

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.
