125th Anniversary Celebrations Lady Captains Day
On Wednesday 20th June, 53 ladies arrived to enjoy Danish Pastries and coffee before a shot gun start to their round of golf.
We had a touch of then and now on the course. Big hats and long skirts makes golf even more difficult.
71 ladies were present for afternoon tea and then serenaded by Voicebox a Barber shop quartet. Congratulations to our golf winner on the day Sarah Read and to our celebration cake winner Hilary Ridding.
My thanks to all who attended and made this a very special day.
