Monthly Report

December 2016 was a busy month in the calendar with many Christmas competitions. I would like to thank Ross, Kenny and Roger for running the Turkey Flutter, the Boxing Day and the Roll Ups... and Cristina for running the office, which allowed me to take some time off with the family over Christmas.

The Turkey Flutter was won by our new member Andy Wheeler, who had a score of 39 points, while Boxing Day was won by Kay and Rhys Ford with a score of 37 points (BB9). Ross Sutherland and Robert Moss won the Pro Prize with a great score of 38 points.

The Eclectic Competition sponsored by Florida Golf (thanks to Chris Hales) was won for the men by Tim Russell with a score of 66, and by Sally Evans for the ladies with a score of 67. The nett prize for the Eclectic for the men was won by Alberto Nicoletti with a score of 55, while Stella Jeffrey won for the ladies with a score of 57 tied with Sue Georges, but better back two holes.

Ladies Section

Mai Markey

On the first Wednesday of December, we played a combination of the Medal and the Wainwright Trophy.

Unfortunately the rain came on the 14th, so we cancelled our Elf Christmas Challenge and adjourned to Susan Russell's home for luncheon and some bubbles. Paul Cotterill and Barbara Fletcher kindly prepared a wonderful selection of fare, followed by mince pies from Zoe and Stollen from Lisa. Cathy followed up with coffees and chocolates, kindly given by Melaura. A special thanks to Santa for coming as we all know how busy he can be at that time of year...

The Stableford and more Wainwright matches were played on the 21st December, while the winner of the Casa da Quinta voucher for this month was Molly Wainwright.

Zoe was delighted to announce her Lady Vice for 2017 - Lisa Burns, who has accepted the role and we all wish her well.
