At the residence of 46 Lenham Drive, Phoenix at 9am and will proceed to Clare Estate Crematorium at 3pm.

Ladies Golf

Dear Ladies,

After a full week-end of golf, I just come back from SARDA (SA Riding School for the Different Abilities as they say!) one of the charity we support. I must say that I have been most impressed by the work those volunteers do the whole year for those different children and the progress and satisfaction you can see on their little faces! We will have a power point presentation on the day of the charity: Friday 21st of July.

In the meantime, her are the RESULTS OF THE WEEK:

Tuesday 19th June: VEJ Trophy, BB Medal at Beachwood

Winners: Lauren Challis-Chandler and Sally Mc Cabe on a magnificent 62 nett!
Runners-up: Sue Reeve and Gaye Kincaid on a very good 67 nett
3rd Place: Lydia Muhl and Aline Jamme on a decent 68 nett
4th Place: Jean Whitfield and Audrey Robertson on a solid 69 nett, oco from Sheila Mc Carthy & Bridget Lee and Carol Wilson & Alma Inggs, sorry ladies

VEJ trophy Winners: Lauren Challis-Chandler and Sally Mc Cabe at Beachwood

Thursday 22 June: League at Kloof

The Singles team won their match on a good 8/4! Well played ladies!
The Better ball team sadly lost their matches on 8/2.

Friday 23rd June: The Mystery competition at DCC was changed to a 3 ball alliance with one score on pars 3’s due to a lack of support.

1st) Karene Swanepoel, Sue Reeve and Lou Pullan on a good 80 points
2nd) Vasso Stylianou, Michèle Gillmer and Tanya Rawson on 77 points

I must say that I went to the draw in the evening and stayed for dinner at the Bistro and their new menu is amazing and the presentation of the food fantastic for a very reasonable price! I thought it was worth mentioning as people have been complaining lately. They have improved the service as well! So try to support them as it is worth it!

Saturday 24th June: Lady Bird Trophy at DCC: Mens(Cole Minahs & Early Birds) Vs the Ladies

It was a very early start as the 1st 4 balls went off at 6h32 in the dark and the cold! Obviously it didn’t disturb the Early birds who seemed used to it and clapped the ladies for the 3rd year in a row! So hopefully it will l be the last time! Everybody enjoyed a drink and some delicious snacks provided by the chef at the club. Thank you Xanthos!

Cyndy Mc Keown with Rae Stewart (Cole Minahs) and Andy King (Early Birds), receiving the Carrots!

Sunday 25th June: Business league at MECC 1

After some very tight matches, our league lost their fight against a very strong team 6/2.
